    Episode 14 - Arthur Alligood (Songwriter)

    Arthur Alligood is an amazing singer-songwriter from Hendersonville, TN who has been lauded, "A master craftsman of American songwriting" by No Depression and I can't agree more. Even more than that though Arthur is a beautiful and talented soul who is a great storyteller and listener. When Arthur came through on tour he was kind enough to chat with Billy and I about his career, life and songwriting after a day of traveling and playing a house show. Stick around until the end to listen to one of my favorite songs from his album "The Shadow Can't Have Me".
