“American Podcast was born three years ago via text. Our producer, Clara Rose, wrote me: ‘How about a podcast spotlighting Americana music?’ We celebrated the second anniversary of our flagship episode. The learning curve we endured could stump a mountain goat, however the selfless generosity we received, in all things and from all walks, was boundless. Listen to our show and you’ll find Americana music is the people’s story. It lives in a musical galaxy but is nourished by the stories that live in all of us,” Robert Earl Keen, Co-Creator and Host of Americana Podcast said.
“This show is proud to be a voice for Americana music, a vibrant and rich community worth exploring. While two years only scratches the surface of the genre, we are grateful to previous contributors and look forward to bringing our listeners closer to the wellspring of the music they love.” said, Clara Rose, Co-Creator and Producer of Americana Podcast.
A co-write with Keen is the Grand Prize for the American Songwriter Lyric. The deadline to enter the July/August competition is in just over one day.
