My guest today is Chris Finney a Grammy Winning Producer, Engineer, and Mixer. He is a life long advocate of music and business education, on both the High School and College levels.  

His 25+ years in the recording studio include dates with Robert Plant, B.B.

In 2017, He co-founded the non-profit 30AMP Circuit, with renowned guitarist Charlie Hunter. 30AMP’s mission is to bring music from underserved communities around the world into the mainstream.  Their first project brought them to rural Southeast Mexico to produce “Lo Sagrado,” by Silvana Estrada, which was released in November, 2017.

My guest today is Tommy Womack A Singer-songwriter, author, humorist and Kentucky native Tommy Womack got his start in 1985 to 1992 with legendary Bowling Green based post-punk and college radio faves, Government Cheese (who’s story is immortalized in Tommy’s cult classic book “Cheese Chronicles”). 

Upon moving to Nashville in 1992, Tommy’s become known for his long working relationship with Will Kimbrough, starting with their bands the bis-quits (who made one classic album for John Prine’s Oh Boy label in 1993), and their band Daddy, who have made two albums and enjoy a cult following.

Since 1998, Tommy has released seven solo albums, the latest being the brand-new “Namaste”. He looks forward to the back half of 2016 with new songs from that record to play, in addition to such proven past show-stoppers as “Nice Day”, “Vicky Smith Blues” and “Alpha Male & the Canine Mystery Blood.”

In addition to “Cheese Chronicles”, Tommy is the author of the comic Civil War novella “The Lavender Boys & Elsie”, and the recently published “Dust Bunnies”. He has written for many magazines, including the Oxford American, and is a regular contributor to The East Nashvillian.
