Buddy Miller Talks The Wire and Nashville on New RS Podcast

News from Rolling Stone Country of a new podcast you can catch now with the King of Americana: “One month after fronting the house band at this year’s Americana Honors & Awards, Buddy Miller sits down with Chris Shiflett – podcast host, Foo Fighters bandmate, solo artist and fellow multi-tasker – for the newest installment of Walking the Floor. The episode makes its way through more than a half-century’s worth of history, from the original Woodstock, where a teenaged Miller caught Jimi Hendrix’s set, to present-day Nashville. Along the way, Miller – who helped strengthen the left-of-center country scenes in Austin, New York and Los Angeles before moving to Tennessee – geeks out over the Grateful Dead and takes some well-deserved shots at Nashville’s obsession with co-writing. There’s also a story about the time he suffered a heart attack onstage, only to drink half a beer with the creator of The Wire before heading to the hospital. (Priorities, people.)”
