The Nashville Hype! Podcast with host Paul King

Episode 9 - Kirt Webster - The Star Behind Many Stars

My special guest on this episode of The Nashville Hype!™ Podcast is Kirt Webster. Kirt has had a phenomenal career in Nashville as the publicist to artists like Dolly Parton, George Jones, Kid Rock, Hank Williams Jr, the Oak Ridge Boys and many, many more. He's a great story teller and for no other reason than to hear his Jim Ed Brown story, you'll enjoy this episode.

Episode 8 - Cassandra Tormes - Nashville's Favorite Person

Nashville's 'Favorite Person' Cassandra Tormes joins as my guest on The Nashville Hype!™ Podcast to kick off 'season 2' of the show. She's managed Georgetown Studios, RCA's 'Studio A' (arguably the most famous studio in the world), been a successful song publisher and plugger, and worked with Garth Brooks, Ben Folds, and many others in her illustrious career. Staying very much behind the scenes, she's Nashville's 'Secret Weapon' to the music industry.

Episode 7 - Paul King - Founder of The Nashville Hype!

In this episode I tell my own personal stories of living and working in the Nashville music industry. Nashville stories featuring Travis Tritt, Eddy Raven, Aaron Tippin, Taylor Swift, Robert Reynolds, Pam Tillis, TG Sheppard, T. Graham Brown, Lorrie Morgan, Kelly Lang, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, BB King, Brian Setzer, Brooks & Dunn, and more!

Episode 6 - Ray Scott - The Fiercely Independent Artist

You can either grind it out on Music Row, or grind it out in the 'real world'. Ray Scott took a chance, and after a short stint on a Major Label (with a Top 40 single at radio), decided he'd rather be his own man and determine his own path. He never looked back and has been a successful world touring indie artist ever since. I call him "fiercely independent" and in this episode, you'll see why!

Episode 5 - Mike Severson - Founder of Songwriter City

Mike Severson is a long time Nashville music industry executive and the founder of Songwriter City (songwritercity.com). He represents songwriters with over 450 #1 songs. We talk about those things, and a lot more on this podcast.

Episode 4 - Joe Doyle - Hit Songwriter For Jason Aldean, Reba, Alabama, and more

Hit Songwriter Joe Doyle has been a staple of the Nashville music industry for nearly 4 decades. He's had songs recorded by Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, Reba, Alabama and many others. He's a really interesting person and storyteller and you will really enjoy this episode.

Episode 3 - Jeff McCool - Founder and Lead Singer of Moccasin Creek

For anyone who knows Jeff McCool and has followed the music of Moccasin Creek, you're in for a real treat. Jeff, who has sold over 500,000 records and had more than 86,000,000 YouTube views in his 12 year career, opens up about life on the road, his music, and what happens next.

Episode 2 - Rissi Palmer

My good friend Rissi Palmer, the host of Color Me Country Podcast on Apple, has had what you could call “an interesting ride” in the music business. From the great promise of hit records, to losing her record deal, to being sidelined in the industry for years, to resurrecting like a phoenix into one of the most powerful voices in the industry – seems she’s seen and done it all. We talk about this and more on this podcast (and we have a lot of laughs doing it). Listen to the FULL Episode now!

Episode 1 - Amanda Colleen Williams

I had the great pleasure to catch up with my long time friend, hit songwriter Amanda Colleen Williams. She’s had songs recorded by Garth Brooks, George Jones and many others. Her father, Kim Williams, is a Songwriting Hall of Fame member who, at the time of his passing, had written over 7,000 songs – with 500 cuts.
