James Bond: Goldfinger - Pre-Title Sequence Discussion
"The pre title sequence in goldfinger has set the bar for all future bond films in terms of how the pre title sequence is treated and is so prominent a part of each movie guy. Hamilton was brilliant in encapsulating. All the traits and characteristics of ban from his stealthy nece toughness blunt instrument of the government. Kind of spy. Womanizer coolness dapper nece and determination to succeed at whatever it is. He's doing all rolled up into the pre title sequence goldfinger. This is brilliant. He sounds amazing now. Golfing is considered by many to be the move that set the full relentless chance for be for many years to come. The first phone pray title was from russia with love however that will very much outlining the movie and letting us now that donald red grant wasn't assassin trying to kill james bond the goldfinger pre title sequence on the other hand as almost nothing to do with the rest of the movie. There are two small wins. The first is in the nightclub. I'm we'll talk about that later. And the second east when felix makes bond at the fund. Simple tally miami. Beach bond size on holiday might have now and would put me into the best. How telling miami beach after gratitude. Maybe that holiday was for the job title. It just isn't clear. Most people think the pre pull has nothing to do with the rest of the moment. We in agreement guys go. I think there is a little connection there. And i think we hear it in the nightclub in the pre title sequence. I think that's interesting. Because i saw an interview by richard maibaum and he actually says we thought we'd do this little mini thing in front. That had nothing to do with the movie. So it's kinda weird because they did try to seem to tie it together but as the writer said we did this just to Have some fun yeah. I think he's in miami for two reasons. One am wants him to trace the movements of goldfinger who happens to be there and to its immediately. After completing his mission we assume in central america which is not all that far from miami. So deploying double oh seven on the goldfinger mission might be believable since he was kind of in the area yes. It's true as from russia with love. The opening pre title sequence begins with a dark dimly lit scene. There's somebody walking we see these three. Large cylindrical objects. They kind of look like silos. Who hear the sound of footsteps on the stone. The camera pans back over a building. We start to hear the sound of water lapping the shore of the sounds. Yeah the sound effect. Here is brilliant. Yes it's really only second sound we hear. Is this water noise now. We know something's about to happen on the shore and we have to remember the cameras like our is. It's turning to what catches our notice or intrigues us. So the cameras leading us somewhere. Yeah yeah l. Of the details a small fishing boat perhaps is in the left foreground. Looks like a little fishing boat as the light bays or white structure in the background and perhaps a distant palm tree it looks like against the night sky the touches of warp with some lights that iran break the darkness a chocolate a couple of exterior structure lights just breaks the monotony of the darkness of the scene. So all of this is just beautiful in terms of a picture of what's happening as any greek pre title sequence should do it makes us wonder. Where are we who is there. What is about to happen. The music also is suspenseful other music greed in here because it's kind of suspenseful and then all of a sudden the score changes to these horns so it's kind of jarring. And we see the siegel swimming on top of the water. We have the great water sound effects in this. Short bursts of horns are learning that. Something's going to happen in a second. We know why we see that. The seagull is attached to bonds headgear of his dry suit as he cautiously looks around here moves the headgear and tosses it into the water. A nice splash again. Great sound effects and you see the splash in get is probably not a good idea. Because it's a pretty big splash buddies trying to be clandestine. So what do you guys. Think of this siegel thing it's bond. I mean it's cute. Thank you what do you think of that much of the skies. Someone would have be watching that. Second he said amusing disgracing Will be speaking later on a bit. More about baxter yet start of things. Start to the formula spouse. We say okay we say james bond approach approaches seething. The vote using fight anymore accident coins. This concept gets us twice more in the future. In james bond babies so these prey title has impact. Not only on many pre-title secrecy to comb. Won't on the mind body of gunman these in the gym. I thirty two saline octopussy. Where james bond roger roger. These time approaches the palace in a fight alligator or a crocodile thinking a crocodile. He uses it again. His voter a meets kid when he finds. Vj was killed.

Should Ekholm Be the Bruins' Top Trade Target This Season?
"I will give you the floor to explain why Mattias ekholm is a great fit. Just thought I agree with you on pretty much most of these points. Yeah. I mean, I think you look at it even obviously the brand see some depth right now because you know, we could be in a situation where when the Bruins resume play on Thursday if Crews Lake is a barrel on healthy, you know, you could be a situation where you're another body away from a guy like, you know, Nick Woolf for Cooper's a cord jacket Sean getting calls up to be pressed juice. Service like this so not ideal from the government's perspective. But even if this whole left side was completely healthy when you had loads on Grizzly kinds of oral. I still think the proactive move for this team is to still acquire a proven top floor guy just to shore up that defense just turned it as overall security like one. There's the health risk, which you know, we remember what it was a few years ago in the Bruins played the song is in the playoffs and it was you know, Tommy Crofts and Joe Morrow and those guys like that was that was you know, garlic McEvoy. Yeah. We're trying to give it was, you know, averaging 23 minutes of ice-time mean that's the worst case scenario in terms of injuries. But also you just run the risk of you know, going into the playoffs and it's you know solid as low as on as looked, you know as promising as a moral has been you still running a whole bunch of risk, if you roll those guys out expecting them to kind of, you know, not deal with the bumps along the road with that comes with playing heavy minutes and a playoff setting against tough teams like the capitals or off. No Penguins Flyers. If you get past that, you know, the the lightning, you know, all these teams that are going to you know, bring it to you. So I think would you rather keep this defense which has been great like you can I think you can you can admit that. It's defense has exceeded expectations and they've been very good. We'll also acknowledging and being cognizant of the fact that if you want to go all in this year, you need more stability back there. So I think a guy like at home makes perfect sense of your the Bruins. I mean, he's thirty years old big body which looks like a lot of Bruins fans, right? Just thought you know, he's six four. Yeah 6 for 2:15, but he's not just also like a I wrote that he's not like a guy like maybe Brenden Dillon who the the capitals acquired last year whose, you know, six four big guy, but he's kind of a stay-at-home option. I mean not Combs a skilled defenseman back there. He's one of the best over the last couple of years at generating 5 and 5 offense, which you need like you suck. Which I didn't it's funny. I was reading your column. I didn't realize he was that high up with 515 offense until I read that that

"So I mean for us. It's been weird but for me, it's weird because I'm not seeing you know ten or twenty people at the office, but you're not getting a chance to see twenty thousand people. In an arena that that that's a big difference what what does that feel like? Home, it sucks to be frank. This was going to be you know I think this is going to be career defining year. For me as far as touring goes and You know obviously, it was a massive honor getting the entertainer nod. Today but but you know I would have loved to have been able to be out there and really put a stamp on it. With my numbers and try to try to use that to competition for. You know to make my case for maybe win in that thing you know and so it's kind of. It's weird in that sense because like you said it, my first stadium show was going to be this year background went to college and you know that was a huge deal to me and in that town, it's really small town. So it's a big deal for them tourism dollars wise and So it was just you know two nights a massive square garden two nights at Boston Garden I mean every show on the tour was sold out I. Mean I think we? Sold. Over half a million tickets or something mean it's it's like insane. You know the amount of people that were not getting the play for this year you know and so and obviously we were hoping to use that success from this to. Transition into. Potentially. You know garth level. Shows neck. You know next year was kind of the hope. So now that's just kind of all been paused. Think. Sure because if you're going to mount that bigger production, you've got to start thinking. Well in advance. Stadium. It's two years to plan that. It's not just like you know what? Let's do that next month you know it's I mean it's a year year and a half of planning the production and new gathering the trucks in the buses and adding staff and you know. So it's and that's all stuff that I. I guess I don't have to be involved in, but I'm like pretty heavily involved in making sure that all that stuff happens. You know I like to. I'm not a control freak because I'm not the guy that necessarily knows. What should or shouldn't happen but I do like to know what's going on and be involved in this decision. So it's not like I'm just going. Let's do stadiums call me when we're going. Either you know what I mean, right? You do more than wait for the wait for the car to pick you up. you know you you mentioned your managers, a couple of times. I had the the pleasure speaking with the Lynn Lynagh recline and Chris Cathy your managers for billboard and I remember something people always talk about how quickly things happened for you. But I remembered something the Capi told me and I went and looked it up. He was talking about how the when he first joined up with you. That you guys were in a van not even trailer. It was an extended fifteen passenger van within the last two rows pulled out for the gear and we toured in that for five months so and he was driving yes, he was driving. So at six guys in their gear stuff together in a van for for five months that that sounds like some pretty hard work. Yet was and we were playing about four shows a four shows a week. Then that time and you know mean Capi one is will be two guys a pop at that time. I mean he's he's recently dropped about one hundred, fifty bills But me and him were Ryan Shotgun just out of necessity really at that point. So he was driving I mean and he wasn't like Oh we'll trade off. Like that guy drove every mile. For six months. And I mean, four nights away he quit. You know six figure job and. Blew through his entire life savings. To come here and drive a Shitty old van with some kid in it and a couple guys he met at the tin roof and g go play shows. You know I mean like so that level dedication to me is like, what sold me? On copy as a manager like I. Can't question the guys commitment at that point. But but you have this effect on people because. If I remember right Capi told me that he saw you play a show. And then almost immediately started pitching you on on being your manager. Jonathan do I remember right that you also you saw Lucas songwriting he had. On a two-day. WHO It was. Yeah. It was on a Tuesday at ten revival Robin channing those guys put on. Me Randy Montana standing in the back drinking a beer thinking was the. University. And so we're always like the old guys we're like, Hey, man, we'll play the anniversary just put us on it like eight o'clock you know so we can go home early. and. So we had played we got done with standing at the bar drinking out for a walk out the door, and here this guy starts singing and we kind of jog back you know. To the back. Is sitting there playing in. Yeah. We're so as Google search him in because we were the only ones that didn't know like the people in town. Like the people who were in the business who were there were the people who didn't know who was everybody else was there to see him and we're singing all the songs and we were like. Fans everyone else was like fans, right. Yes the silly music row people were standing there trying to figure out how they. How they can talk to this guy and I figured it out real quick. It was Turkey hunting and deer hunt. I. Went pretty well after that. It was I remember when I so Jonathan I've probably told him the story before but so me and rob one of the guys in my band Wilford right with stuff we were like. We're like still super. John Singleton. Fans you know like. We're listening to the Grove we're in deep were in the wormhole John Singleton you know, and so the year before that like one year to the day was the anniversary before that. Me And rob went to watch you play. At this thing and you're at the bar getting a beer and we were just kind of sitting like no one was around you. And that way we were just kind of like we were just kind of looking over I'm like. Dude. That's asked him you know. Like. And we just went over there and we're like. John Singleton..

"One of the detract we haven't talked about is my kind of folk, which is a real party track my kind of. rhymes with fire up a little smoke. And it does end with some truly rocking instrumentals. Guitarist and your organised trading Solos. Tell me about recording that one. Chip, go ahead on mountain to give us a little well, Jonathan I had kind of. Talked about when we're looking at all the songs and the range of the things we were GonNa do we knew that one was the one that? Guy's GonNa Sling it in stretch on a little bit even though colds you we knew needed to be just burned edge, but this was the one. That we wanted the guys to. Step out of the bitten slaying on and. The feel of the swing in it, you know it, it was kind of groovy in a way So the guy's caught on to that pretty quick and in Rundowns, we would just let them run a little bit sometimes when you're going you WANNA. Let them you. You're kind of like work in a little bit into to to the range that you want them to play in and the things you want to do. But at the same time you want them to feel it run a little bit and and sometimes that brings stuff to the service that you. Okay. Wait we need that we need that in there and so what you hear on the Altro. On the backside of the song is when those guys start a new, what we're already doing and what we wanted but then we just let them go and they came in on the backside and then it was just too many little things that happen there and that's happens a lot on recording sessions where you get your versus ironed out. That's what everybody has to be so regimented and then. When when the tape machine stops or it's in the fade and everybody loosens up then some really cool stuff. Yeah. So it made sense to just let let that go for a little bit and let them play. Yeah. No, it's a ton of fun and and and so are you cutting that live at at that point? Mostly Yeah I mean we, we grab a rundown. We play it down several times to get. We're looking at little pieces each time, and then we sort of get the whole thing pulled together where we go. Okay. Everybody sort of knows the roadmap and they know what we're GonNa do but Jonathan I are still trying to look at all the pieces like puzzle pieces and they all have to fit together. In a way that you still need to mold them but you're trying to get it as much of it live as you can. You're trying to get it. And you know you have a limited amount of time but you're still going let's let's do it again and then you get I don't know eighty five percent. We get maybe in there, and then after that, we have to come back and start looking at each part and maybe trim up some things but you try to particularly in Nashville where we've got such amazing players the best. Players in the world. And you've got trouble not to mention gas who played on Luke's earlier record. So you know and here we are. Trying to fill a slot and make it. Upgrade it make it feel great. But still make it feel like Luke and so jerry row and John Saul Saul of those guys who had played on those early records sometimes, it was like, well, Hey, man. What should we be doing and there's nothing wrong with that we do it all time. They're great players you know. Yeah. So. That's one that. Really would have been a lot of fun to see you play. A big space talk to me a little bit you. You'd stadium shows book. Do you you're doing a headlining arena tour in in fact, if I've got this right, you were overseas and playing a little bit when we? Went into lockdown and you came home right before the CDC festival. Is that right? Yeah we. So we were there. We were there for probably a week before we had an I'd left. I think I left a day before the first arena show. So they've because I've played see to see that I. Guess Technically twice one time all the way through. But I was I was GONNA headline this year And so it's like Oh to in in Dublin Oh two in Glasgow to London. Those are the bigger arenas that you headline the one night and it's three different headliners than we all swapped cities every night. So there's three shows in a row in the same city, but it's three different headliners each night, and so we all swap out. But what they do, they've they're trying to expand the scope of that festival, and so they added a show this year in Berlin and a show in Amsterdam, and they'll smaller like. Two to four thousand seat venues because they're just trying to establish. A country music base there like it's such a new, they call it American music by the way. Well Okay and they called American music which is pretty interesting and the headline is you would have been trading places with were Darius Rucker and Eric. Yeah and so we went Eric didn't play the two smaller shows so he actually never came over. The day we had to leave was the day he was supposed to leave. And so me and him were texting back and forth like what's going on I'm Texan and Mike don't get on the plane like you know like everything's his people were there his people were that he was in the band weren't there yet? Okay. His guys had flown over with the gear and stuff like the day before or something which you know that's unfortunate but Yeah, we were all there and luckily we all got back I mean I was I mean I was to be honest with. You crushed the night that we found I mean I was. Absolutely trashed drunk the night I found out. Like embarrassingly drunk you know but like fun like having a great time because we played the two shows we play in Berlin and we had two days off to just. Do whatever and so we were and Nicole were at somebody's house and we had some drinks and I gotta call it like. I. Mean One am. Or something that was like. I had some big rights lined up over there the next day and ended up having to get on a plane like. Eight or nine in the morning and just. Go Straight back home. It just stopped everything is stopped up and did you have to get on a plane right away because that was when they issued the travel advisory Yes recommending everybody come home now or you may not be able to do it. Yes. So I got the call from management at one am because my manager was over there but obviously, he was awake and we had seen that things were getting more. It was already kind of on the line of like you know what we're going old dominion they backed out before the thing. And so we were all calling hen. What if the like it doesn't get canceled may back out with that. Look bad on them. You know and I mean, they ended up making a good call I'm glad that we went and played those shows because I had a great time you know and had still had some great experiences even though. The circumstances were different but. There was no meet and greets there was no interviews or signings. They were already doing preventative measures at that time because it was starting to become. A will people are starting to get it in other places other than China at that time. And so then it was like I got the call and literally I went to bed and they're like there's going to be a car to get you at seven because I was two hours outside of London. At that time. and. So we had to come get a car, get me Nicole, and we went straight to the report from where we were. Straight to the airport and then straight home in straight into quarantine..

"How I got here I guess. You were you were just talking about your mom and what you see. There was a dad song on what you see even though I'm leaving and then in these additional tracks that are on the deluxe version. There's a mom song that's added without you. Yeah Yeah so The way that Kinda Song. Played Out was you know? The first verses about my parents? Second. Is about my fiance? Third, verses about the FANS I. To be kind of A. An oath to like the main kind of. Things that kind of keep me grounded in you know because. Sometimes I feel really guilty about. Being the guy that's always. Everybody wants to talk to me and everybody wants to say what did you do to do this and why is that you? That does this and everything and like. I know I'm very flattered by that. You know and and I've definitely worked hard to be where I am but it's definitely a massive team effort that. Nobody sees you know it's it's chip in Jonathan and Massey in my managers, and you'll my parents and my fiance or my wife now, and you know so it's it's there's all these people that I feel like don't get. The credit. You know the fans if they weren't there than there is just none of it would work anyway. So it's A key lyric in that in that track is it's me they give credit to, but I think I have this right but me don't mean a thing without you, right? Yeah, and so that was kind of a hook that honestly me and I wrote that with Dan is boy and wider it. In Boone up in one of those being trips you've been up there and. We ran a little cabin up in boone and sometimes we'll go up there for two weeks and just all have writers up for two weeks and okay and I learned that from church told me about those kind of things that he does and it's a good way to like lock in. To just riding. It's better than going Oh, I've got a ride in three weeks and it's just on a random Tuesday. Can't really get in prepared for that. You know it's like but if you know you're going to be up here for two weeks and you're going to be trying to write two songs a day for two weeks than like you kinda gotta buckle up. There's no. I rent this cabin, there's no service almost. It does have TV. But. It's like there's not you're not playing xbox and. You know there's just Kinda. You sit on the porch and just kind of write songs and drink beer and stuff all day, which is really awesome but. Yeah we were right NAT. We didn't have a Hook I mean the whole song was pretty much done. And I just kind of sat there and You know. I literally just came pulled that Cata. The thin air pretty much. And it was like. I mean it wasn't like we were just riding those things like, oh well, let's talk about your parents you know. And then let's talk about the all the stuff they do for you and. We had everything except the hook which usually never happens like that. Usually kind of right around the hook a bit. and. So that was different. You know just kind of sat there for two hours just. Beat my head into a wall. Dan and Wyatt probably didn't think I was doing anything. They're probably Ghia we're stuck in his cabin with this fat he be writing songs. So you know. But I mean, sometimes I have something that you know when Jonathan is the demo done while I'm taking ship you know. Song is super interesting to me because it's it's without you. Could. And how many without you songs you know? So I can see where you would avoid that but I loved how it was me anything without you. Totally that's had been that we hadn't heard that version of that. Song. which I thought was really really cool. And I guess again Jonathan You were talking about. The negative and the positive in those other songs we were talking about without you just as a title does sound like a song about losing someone does yeah. Yeah and IT Kinda of tricks. He's not what you expect here and without you I mean it feels like the Motley crue song or the other eighteen version. Right. Exactly. But. It does it moves on and that's what. We. Spend more time on that in a songwriting room. On the line before the hook if the then we gotta make the line before the hook pop and. Pop, really not moving until it does. Give me how do you mean give me an example of of the line before the Hook and how it pops it's just like I would compare it to. E Can't hit a home run without a good baseball swing you know what I mean. And like the line like that setup line to me is the sales it. That's the hook can be great. You can have a great song title. But if the line before it doesn't set it up to. You know hit it out of the park. You know throw the right pitch. You're not gonna hit it out of the park. Like it's kind of something along those lines, you know it still feels good but you still look always wants to be like Oh man after that you want to say. Yeah. Yeah. He still wants that happened, which is great. I mean your spend a Lotta time banging your head against the wall trying to figure out what it is. That, song in particular. Felt like it did it. All the time I was like, oh Great. Greatest hits. mean a thing without you. Oh, I get it. So we're talking about a song where you bang your head against the wall for two hours to come up with the hook. But you're still in a situation where you're writing a song or two a day. Are there are there any time I mean what's a song that? Lingered for weeks if not months or years there anything that you, you had even more trouble catching the hardest. The longest one I've ever done was there was a song on what you see is what you get called. God. The title will be right now I wrote it withdrew Parker. Rob Wilford. And it was seven it was seven rights over two years. To get it, it was is that is that nothing? Nothing about you that's it. Yeah and we really loved that song and we had kind of got the hook and had some verse stuff and. I mean we had. Yeah. It was over the course of like two and a half years. It was seven different right like moving lines around and then decided we didn't like it and then bringing stuff back in on you know sometimes it's like I. Mean. That's the only song I've ever had. That's been the even remotely close to that long. I mean had some that were like maybe three rights over the course of. Tier three months but that one was just like we knew we liked it a lot and we wanted to get it right. But that was the point where I was getting like super busy with Taurine, and so it ended up just getting spread out over this like immense amount.

"About his hope for the future. Here's what else he had to say. needed. Luke counts welcome to inside the studio you, you have some guests with you. Would you would you mind introducing them? Yes? Yes. I have chip here in Jonathan. My producers here very handsome. Jonathan's making white trash spit. Cup. Boys. Why don't you tell me a little bit about yourself here gentlemen let's let's do that. Hey, I'm Jonathan Singleton and been a songwriter and Guitar Player and. Barbecue cooker for a long time kidding about the barbecue cooker thing. And been friends for a long time. We've done a lot of songwriting together done a lot of playing together and. was excited to jump in here and do some do some production stuff with chip matty's chip. Matthews and. I have been around Nashville for a long time working in the trenches engineering producing. And I met Luke a few years back through CAPI I believe and some Sony stuff and we got the opportunity to work together a few times. And then I was lucky enough for him to invite me to work with Jonathan on this record. So that's where we are today so. Luke I know you've talked a little bit. Live. Streams about what Corentin has been like for you. You you you have gotten to enjoy a little bit of time off the road play some call of duty. Turkey hunting at your place. Also, I believe you've been raising some chickens. Yes. That has been the the bulk of my activity over the last six months or so Turkey hunting only for a couple of months obviously. But yeah, lot some call of duty I. Appreciate you saying that and not. An ASS load of duty, which is probably more realistic. But no yes. I mean I've just been hanging out. I just got married. A month ago today which was great, and so I've just been spending time with. My wife, which is still weird saying that still still not used to saying that yet. But yeah, it's been really a really weirdly good. Strangely great year a lot of ways and you know it's Kinda sucked ass and a lot of ways to I guess you know you've also been doing some writing and recording during the pandemic and. Of course. You've heard six feet apart and I know the story behind that is you had a songwriting session scheduled in April. You didn't WanNA. Let it go and tell me how did the idea of of writing about what was actually going on right then I come up and then how was writing and recording that song different than usual. So I had a right scheduled with Brent Cobb and Rob Snyder and I hadn't written with Brent before. So I was really want to do that because really big fan of his and he's really great what he does and so Brent lives in Georgia and so he was. Doing it over facetime or something. So we all like zoom I texted them. The night before and I was like hey. Should we just write you know a song about this stuff or whatever, and they actually sent me. That tidal and they were like we were actually talking about this before. You. Texas. So we were all kind of on this just happened to be on the same page with it. And we wrote it the next morning it was probably like. Hour and a half maybe or something, and we were like done with it because it was just kind of like just kind of fell out because it was just everything that was because of the corn teams like super, new and weird time and. Like things were. Very uncertain. But now realizing that they were less uncertain I guess than they are now even probably but at that time that was like. Really Weird. Because we and we kind of all like, oh, it'll be over in you know may or whatever, and that's kind of what we all think, Oh yeah. Those happy days when we thought this would ever end. Yes it was like Oh this'll be done in six weeks. It'll be you know we'll be good summer common. We'll be good and they and and so then I you know I I hid up chip. Here and I was like man like let's just go and because I put the song I played the song. I. Think the next night on. Instagram or something something like that and and got a really solid response out of it and sounds like man we should just record this thing and nothing else going on because there was a recording moratorium from Sony. We weren't supposed to be doing anything. And so I had to kind of go through. And Express An are what you wanted to do. And then. Had to find a studio that was willing to let us in which was that was like really strict at that. Yeah. It was very insanely. And I. Think it was really honestly that had been working with those guys and been with him in person and I was like, Hey, can I get into this thing and when we first started talking about it was small and they were like sure and then when we showed up that day The owner came down. He's like this is a lot more than I thought you bring in how how many folks were you bringing in? Well, we still cut lean we cut with. I think we cut four peace. On light and then I only had it. Was Me You You're there Massey was there. Yeah. Second Engineer. Very. Crew, and we were never in the same room with the with the musicians. We never even entered the same room as them either. No we had we had. We got separate space for Luke that was not even part of the main studio right and then. We had to submit protocols to label into the studio, and then really kind of had to go on the down low because I think people were still kind of coming to terms with. That we shouldn't be doing that and. All it took was somebody getting infected in that window we would have been we were shut down for sure. So really getting in fast and then we got the song and overdubbed it and one guy one guy is just peeled off and left and never even came in the control room. They just came into their booth, the recorded and then left kind of waved on the way out. Yeah. So that was really weird But we try to keep it simple so that we could get what we needed and move on and then And then I guess you sang right then. Yeah. We got the final. We we kind of just put a MIC IN A. Room right there. Yeah. We're all the musician guys were and just cut like three passes and that was it. We were out of there. And it was like, what? Three hours four hours yeah. About four hours probably and then. And it was mastered two days later. I mean, the results are great and it it is such. A moving song. Especially, you know from from my perspective because I care so much about music that the whole part about. You know it's a mystery how long this thing goes but they'll be crowds and they'll be shows, which is something we're all looking forward to, and we're still in that mystery moment. So. There are six new tracks on this deluxe version of the record and six feet apart newly written newly recorded. I, know some of these other songs have been around for a little while. We're any of them newly written written under these quarantine times. He's were some that we've been hold onto for a while of them were probably around I know. Two of them were around when I recorded this album that's out now. And so one of them was the other the other guy that's been around for. Three.

"So I guess, this time out is luke combs who has just released a deluxe edition of his second album. What you see is what you get in the deluxe edition adds five new songs to the one new song. Six feet apart. To Song about the pandemic that Luke added to the album in May. So all in all, that's impressive. One Hour and twenty one minutes of foot stomping songs about beer. Good Times and broken hearts. As, well as slow ones about family. Memories. And the kind of love that could make a man stop stopping his feet and settled down. High caught up with Luke on a day in September that was special in two kinds of ways I. He'd been up early that morning. To help announce the nominations on Good Morning America, and in fact, he snagged six nominations himself including album of the year and entertainer of the year. But Second Luke was celebrating his one month anniversary. And it takes a special kind of lady to appreciate a man who writes songs comparing their bond to the match made up in heaven between good old boys and beer the way luke does in better together but luke. Luke combs found her and in August he married Nicole Hawking his girlfriend since two thousand sixteen although as he told me. They didn't know exactly where they were getting married. Until the last minute, we had to change our venue a before the wedding. which was very interesting and we actually didn't know. We had two different venues and we didn't decide until the morning of the wedding which and what brought the change on what was the reason for the change well. So we ended up getting we were GONNA get married in Key West. And the city imposed Harsher Kovic regulations the week before the wedding. and. So we were gonNA invite it was going to be about one hundred and seventy five. People at the wedding and there they wouldn't allow any gatherings over fifty. So we had to cut from one five to fifty the like the week before the wedding. Find a new venue finding new hotels. Get everyone that we still need to be there. And then when we got there There was a hurricane coming to the snack area which up until the night before I. Guess it was Friday. Evening it was like. Fifty fifty chance like this hurricanes either GonNa. Come. The. Right exactly where we're at orange GONNA fear off. And it was an I'm trying to think what the right joke is for a guy who has a hit song called. Hurricane thought. Actually. Thought. About that a lot of times during during that process. But so it was we had to make it to. Get married at this outside place. Or Get married in the conference room at a hotel which would have been terrible. So luckily, it missed us when we didn't have to do that about that. Hurricane Hurricane is aus which caused significant damage when it did hit the US in August. But the loop comb song about a break-up. Released independently on Luke's third EP in. Two, thousand fifteen. It did so well, it it helped lead to his signing by. Columbia Nashville. rereleased the song in two, thousand, sixteen at which point it became the first of Luke's nine number one country singles. Like a lot of rappers these days early on in his career Luke tapped the power of social media to build up a significant following an independent artists before he ever signed to a major label, and while that might be a common story in hip hop. It's a little bit more unusual in Nashville. And we comes is thirty now, which makes him a solid citizen of Gen Y.. So when he was starting out in his early twenties, it was natural for him to use fine instagram snapchat twitter to get his music out and connect with people. In fact, he's such a solid citizen of. That when I his managers, Chris Capi and Lin Oliver Klein for billboard last year. Capi told me a story about how when he first met Luke five years ago in two thousand fifteen he had to convince luke to use facebook because Luke thought of facebook. As. Not You know. Cool. Anyway happy. Started a facebook group for Luke's fans. It's called the bootleggers and things pretty much exploded from there. So, when what you see is what you get came out last November. It debuted at number one. And it set a record for the biggest streaming first week for a country album ever. Seventy four million on demand audio streams, which is on top of the two point seven billion. Sorry. Let me say that again, two point seven, billion on demand streams that luke had racked up since he started releasing music in twenty fourteen. Okay. So Luke combs is a country superstar with a record setting digital approach. That's a little bit futuristic for Nashville, but his music itself is a throwback. His songs are built around solid narratives and super sharp word play. These are old school values and his songs are packed with details. There's the guy in a song called when it rains, it pours from his first album this one's for you and and and the the the scene goes from a fight with his girlfriend to a three week run of good luck that starts with him pulling into a shell on I sixty five there those details and winning one hundred bucks a scratch off ticket which rhymes with bought to twelve packs and a tank of gas with it. Or on what you see is what you get, there's a song called little bit helps which packs a lot of detail into just justice first line. This futons I crashed on in college well, it in our bed but at least it don't smell like you right there in twenty words get the break up. The Guy Moving out. He's moving backwards to the tiny slept on in college, but he's trying to take a step forward. To get some sadness some anger some lost some heartbreak and what I just said it out loud. I noticed the internal rhyme of futons and crashed on which fill me with a new level of respect for the craft of songwriting here. But in addition to being well written, most of the songs on what you see is what you get her pretty hard rocking and it's long been true that if you were one of the people sitting around wondering you've rock is dead you are not spending much time listening to country. You're going to see it why because country has been the new arena rock for more than a minute now? But. But what you see is what you get is some very big league southern rock again. Before. The pandemic forced him to postpone his tour Lucas scheduled to headline arenas this year and the dates included some stadium shows. As Luke and his Co writer, Jonathan, Singleton and his producer chip Matthews explained to me. They wrote songs like a beer never broke my heart because they needed some music big enough to fill those spaces. Loop talk with me about the cabin he rents where it will spend two weeks at a time writing songs and drinking beers, and it helps that there's a TV but there's no xbox. And he he also talked about how he was overseas in March he was scheduled to play the country to country festival brings country music to the UK into Berlin. and. He was out during night a celebration having a good time when he got a call saying, he had to get himself on a plane the very morning. Because the United States had issued a travel alert due to covert nineteen. Luke talked about his early days when you spending six months straight on the road and nothing but a van with his manager Capi driving and he also talked.

This week is that of the absence of the annual renewal of racing. Springtime ritual the Kentucky. Derby is the reason why we eagerly followed the debut of promising to year-olds at racing venues across the country. It's why we look forward with anticipation to the first three races of those who such promise at two and why we speculate feverishly about the smashing victories of those whose first race was delayed until the early part of their three year old year. And it's why we salt away all that excitement speculation and analysis until that glorious first Saturday in May Mint juleps rather beverage and beverages of choice in hand and unloaded the windows in the hopes of telling one and all after the race.

I'm joined now on the Sunday. Sit Down podcasts. By both the producer of this fine podcast and the producer for Sunday today of the loop. Combs Interview Maggie Law. Hey Maggie so A quick note on the Red Solo Cup so He has Tamil Cup right. You GotTa Double Cup and the One underneath for mixing so you pour the Diet onto the Jack. Yup then you pull it out and you mix it in the other half say I did not know that I thought it was. Maybe for like it was too cold onstage or something like that learn new every day. I also love that. He's like you gotTa have diet. Yeah Jack because the pound calories just in case So you're a country fan. I am a huge am a country. Fan I went to school Nashville. Which is where I learned to be a country fan and I have to admit I didn't know a ton about Lou cones and still until you taught me about Louganis and I love his music. I really do right his album. What you see is what you get. Which as I said is also the name of the tour. It's one of those start to finish a great album and when you meet the guy and you hear his story you like them all the more. He's I feel like I mean he sort of has that you know not exactly overnight but like almost overnight success story and he's still so humble you can tell I love. He came and like his whole team was there because he was on. Snl like you said it was like such a big moment for him and everybody was in town and he just seemed so grateful for the team and support he's known on tour for thanking everybody in the arena like the people who are cleaning up after us that people who are working at the tickets like he is just so grateful for where he is and it is really reflected in his music too and he was shouting out people during the interview. Who's we should explain. They were his team. Basically his manager and the people who've been with them since the beginning and as you say goes out of his way to credit those people with his rise as well. I didn't realize actually until afterward when we shook hands. And we said thank you and they all Some of them his team came out and they said we were all in tears listening to that because I think they hadn't sat and start to finish his whole story. You're talking about like this kind of interview that you do is for somebody like that. He doesn't he hasn't done a lot of these for him to really like sit down and be like. Wow we're have I come in the last five years to look back on that Yeah it was so interesting. I think it speaks to his appeal is he was talking about. How Nashville is known as a ten year town? We have to figure out your thing. What's my sound? What's my luck he's like? I didn't have anything to figure out I knew my sound. I don't have a trucker hat in the fishing. Scher going for a look. I just hope people like my sounds and I think it's so nice to see that kind of authenticity rewarded in this massive way. Like he's been yeah and he is such a huge fan base like within the country world. And it's so interesting because he sort of built that before even moving to Nashville with like you were saying modern technology. He's just put himself up on the Internet with like six second vine clips and he built this huge following and people like thousands of people are now selling out arena. You know coming to his shows. it's just fascinating that he landed in. Nashville and sort of like already knew what he was doing. Yeah it's really fun for me to and probably use a producer. Just just catch somebody in this moment where he's made it in country music. He's beyond made it. He's seven number one singles setting all these records but now he's at that point where. Snl To me. I think and he said what the crossover moment now. All these other people are going to learn a second album debuted not just a number one on the country charts but on the billboard charts. So it's like he is like all he's basically on the precipice of being everybody will know him not just country country people in a different kind of name for a lot of people. Listen to podcasts.

"combs" Discussed on Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist
"Feet every Thursday to subscribe search into America. Where you're listening right now. Welcome back to the Sunday. Sit Down podcast now. More of my conversation with Luke combs so the guitar came later. Yeah people who know you including your family's in the voice was always there when you're a little kid singing Vince Gill Song. Where did that come from that natural gift? Yeah I mean I always tell people it's you I was give this this analogy to this. Like people always asking him. Oh how do I sing like you? Or how do I do this or how I do that and I think it's it's obviously a lot of work and a lot of practice. But it's there's a lot of natural ability. You know made how you be taller. You can't how do you be here? You could try to be the best. You could go get some coach right now. He teach you how to sprint. And you can do it for five years and you could get as fast as could possibly get and there's so many people who don't even have to try and just faster than you. It's just not your thing you know what I mean. It doesn't mean you can't get better at it but there's just like you said it's being tall. It's how do you be some tall? You just are some foot tall and I think there was a lot of that with me not just always saying. I just always liked it always. I didn't really know any good at it until like ninth grade. Probably I just knew I liked it a lot of people like to when I did it. That was it. That was the thing it was like. Whoa I'm doing this. I'm happy and I can tell when I do that. Other people are happy. So it's it's simple math. I guess to me at that point. Why would I not want to make other people happy? Why would I wanNA make myself happy? So that's an easy. It's an easy thing to have to wake up every day. So when you're at Appalachian State when you get to College. You finally kind of put the two together the voice and the guitar. Yeah it's town. Tavern is at the bar bouncer. Eventually start playing gigs. They're playing there so I was living upstairs right. I lived above the bar literally not like literally lived above the bar in between So there was like a imagine a little three super tiny strip mall domino's pizza tanning salon. The bar staircase at went up by the I lived in between the Tanning Salon. And the domino's I would walk downstairs work. My job as a bouncer also worked at an IZOD STORE. Fulton shirts and stuff but ran checking you asking people if they sure you don't want any socks which I hate by the way. Don't ever do that to say that sounds very unnatural very. It's not your is odd. Probably like if you picked two things if he picked antonyms Lou combs that is odd would probably be pretty far off not a perfect fit. No but it was yeah went in and I actually asked my boss if I could play there. I was like hey can I play show here? He's like no because we can't have music because everybody lives upstairs and they and I was like wow I live upstairs and I know everyone that lives upstairs. I guarantee we would all be down here. And I know the towns on clothes and the domino's guys aren't going to know what's going on anyways as we know what they're doing in the back of dominance so so he he still was like why can't I can't do it so in my mind. I was like I played rugby and college. We hung out at a bar. That was kind of right down the street from there and And so I asked that guy if I could play there and I say he was like yeah. Do it absolutely wildcard. He's like yeah. Just put it on the counter. That was it. That's how I booked the show. He was just like just pick a day. It was a counter on the wall in the restaurant. And he's like just write it in and I'm like there's not any real red tape. There's no like how do we he's got what you'll figure it out so I just picked today on there. I can't remember the exact. I still have the first dollar ever made in hanging up in my house but I charge the dollar ticket. I made two hundred bucks. Two hundred people came to see my first show ever which I didn't realize was awesome at that point I was then I put a lot of after that were five feet and so then I went back to work and I told my boss that I played a show at the born on the street and I said I had two hundred people there on Wednesday night. I said so I can either do that or I can play here and so I played there every night every week for the rest of my time there. That was kind of one of three shows. I would play weekly in Boone and then on the weekends. We would go trying to go to Charlotte or Winston Salem or you know Atlanta like northern Atlanta anywhere close mountain city Tennessee Johnson city which slowly when out and then it kind of come time to move to the Asheville you know because I was like well I can. I can do this forever and make it decent enough living a why not try to just do all the way. You came pretty close to finishing school like a semester away. What was the calculation? Like at this moment. It's time to go to Nashville. If I want to do this for real well I I mean I hated school. That helps me also probably failing out we could pull of records on that. I Love I love. I love getting the I love the alumni letters in the mail that you do now. 'cause somehow those have wound up at my place like. Hail how you share your love it here don't you which I do actually The fundraisers found your phone phone razors figured out In bed for sure but I you know that was the thing I honestly struggled with a long time because I did want to graduate. I just don't know honestly if I could have you know I don't think it was. Maybe I'm done for saying this but I don't think I wasn't smart enough graduate. I just don't think I was committed. Yeah you know Just there's nothing about it that made me want be like man. I just gotTa Get up and go to science class today right like nothing about me. Wanted to go to math or science. You know what I mean like. I was just more concerned with you. Know Drinking and playing rugby and saying in I mean those were just I was like man. This is all stuff that I WANNA do. Obviously you can't drink for a living so that was off the list and then You know I was reading quickly Rosh. I couldn't play rugby and there's really only one choice had left one thing And so I was like man because I was at the point. I mean in two thousand fourteen when I moved. That was twenty four. Yeah and so it was like way past in college. At this point I kind of like dropped out slash failed out whatever it is Like probably you're probably twenty two is when I was like I'm done with it like I'm just going to play shows and trying to make money doing that anyway that I can. I supported myself for a few years and You were really when you up to Nashville. Though you were really savvy with Social Media and technology because I imagine it's the old story you know moved Music City with a guitar and a Dream. Hard thing to do. Then what okay we live here. We got an apartment that you use facebook and fine mining. Yes the big thing that I started on And you knew that that could serve amplify your sound. Couldn't do for yourself just getting out there. You know what I mean. You have this traditional method where it's like okay. Well how do you want people to hear your songs? You've find somebody. Hopefully that will give you a record deal or somebody of influence that. Life's you enough to be willing up. Distribute you to those channels. You know I was talking about it with my buddy John in years earlier today like the Internet has revolutionized that thing. Where now you have the ability to take it to people on your own and vine was really one of the first things that ever take talk. Now that's the big thing it's the same thing as vine by the way it is different name so you just go on there and you put up whatever you want and I would just sing little six second covers of stuff and I gained a following and the I ended up Lincoln up with some other guys. They kind of did the same thing as me. And they helped me out a ton and honestly those guys were some of the guys that helped me like. Hey man like you need to like take this vine thing you're going on vine and like now you need to make sure you're getting instagram ballers. I wasn't the guy that I wasn't the genius behind all that you love to take credit for that but those guys were. They had a lot more followers than me online. At that time someone like a million. I think just insane amounts of hours but I had like seventy eight thousand which was enough to sell my songs right because then I use that platform to when I put my first couple songs out on my own. I was like. Hey go by the check them out. You know kind of thing and I remember our making probably a couple hundred dollars a week probably four or five main on a good week. Six hundred dollars a week in which for twenty four year old without a degree. Sure he's just playing music. Music is pretty awesome. You know a recorded these three songs. I put them out and I remember. I was sitting in my neighbor's apartment above the bar. Still of the mother more so distributed in one. This service called tune core and So what happened was they. Would you put your songs out? And then you get paid like a senior like a monthly statement you know and so I guess they make you wait two months for before your first one. So you're kind of catching up. Whatever it is. I don't know why they do that but I was. I remember sitting there and I knew it was getting close because it was march. It's my birthday and my birthday is March second. Just been my birthday and I put the songs out in January of two thousand fourteen And I remember sitting on my friend's couch and I was like man. Be Cool to get that check. You know what I mean like a couple of hundred bucks be awesome. I remember opening my thing and it was like eleven thousand dollars in there and I was like Holy Spirit immediately. What can I get this money? Right Allie nothing in adult would purchase went and got an xbox. I remember that we did absolutely because I didn't have the one. I love your priorities by the way..

"One of us. He's a real guy who just happens to have a great voice and knows how to play the guitar. And we'll there Ryan this people are. And what would you say? Is The loop combs thing? What's the secret sauce? That's made you so success. I mean I think probably you're pretty close to with those things I think maybe it's just. I think the special thing is. There's nothing special you know like. There's no gimmick there's no there's a in my opinion it's like just like men. I could change my oil or be the plumber or whatever but like always had this kind of like underdog mentality you know. When I moved to town it was is pretty tough to even get a meeting. Let alone get a follow up meeting or call back or anything for a while there and then I get it man. You know what I mean when you know if you have five paintings next to each other and one of them's not very good. Look and you're GONNA buy that one until a bunch of people coming in and go. I won't that one. You know what I mean. And that's what had to happen but I had to. My thing was always. I wasn't gonNA wind when he buddy with you know my looks or you know my clothing or but I never wanted to do that. I wanted to while people with my voice and my songs In my personality and that takes a little bit of work you have to go out and get in front of people and play shows and take any giving anybody will give you an anytime play anywhere anyplace and we did that for the last five years. I guess it doesn't sound like a long time but I was doing that in college too. I mean I couldn't play guitar eight years ago. It's amazing you know and I was just. I just knew once I picked guitar. I've been singing forever and it was just once I picked it up. I was like Oh like this is what I'm supposed to be doing because people will like this. You know people always ask me all my buddies that new I could sing. Always be like Oh man. Y'All seeing for these people are always come up at parties and call or something and you know I believed in myself that I was pretty good But once I picked guitar up I was like nobody wants to hear anybody saying when they're not playing an instrument or if there's not accompaniment you know right and even an Capella Group is. You're pretending to have restaurants around right. It's kind of weird to just saying you know what I mean so it was just a way for me to. I mean it was kind of honestly board at borne out of like I was living at home. I was twenty one and all my best friends from high school. There's probably eight or nine of us that are still really close and that was the summer where everybody stayed in their college town for the first time but I was the one guy that moved back to Asheville from college to work job for the summer so I didn't have any friends in town so I'd like nothing living with my parents house working job at a go kart place in Nashville where I worked at high school and all the kids that work there it was fifteen or sixteen or whatever it is and so it was like obviously. I'm not hanging out with him so just go to work and go home and I was kind of sitting here. Manno have anything to do really you know. My parents had bought me guitar in seventh grade that I never played guitar lesson. The never does anything after that When I was how old are you? How are you in seventh grade? I can tell you I have a daughter. Twelve twelve twelve. Yes seventh grade. Thank you for that but no so I was twelve and it was one of those things really. I felt like my parents wanted me to do it so I didn't WanNa do it because I was twelve and I was like Oh. My parents wanted to do that stupid. Then you know what I mean. I wish I wish I would have now but lacked same. Guitar was in my 'cause when I was twenty one years old and my parents house and I went in there. I was sitting outside Salkin. Kinda one days like Pam's board like I don't think I worked that day or something and my mom was like well. You Know Kenny Chesney. He didn't learn guitar until he was twenty. One and how was twenty one at the time and I was like. Oh she's good. That guy can do and then I can do it. You know and so I went and got that guitar and I played Pretty Much Thomas Guitar that summer and the next summer I went to Charlotte and live with my grandmother could play enough to always knew. I could sing good enough to where nobody would notice that. I was terrible guitar player. You know like if I just played a couple of cords and saving get them to focus on this thing not this thing you know what I mean and so I went and did played every open mic night in the world that's ever been done and every place that's ever let someone plug Qatar into. I would go there and play night just kind of kept going. It was never like I never sat down one day. It was like you know what I'm going to be the next country star like it was just always like there was almost like this little trail of candy and it was like pick that one up. Oh well the next step is obviously I? Then it would just these real like micro goals of like play. The next chord was like a goal. I can learn a g chord than I can learn secord right and then that became if I can play an open. Mic night will then could. I broke my own concert. Well if I can play an hour two hours three hours can I write my own songs? Step playing somebody else's. Can I write enough songs to record them and put them out and can move to Nashville? You know what I mean like. The goals were always bigger. But they didn't seem bigger because I was just right on heels of them the whole time. It didn't start out going from piggybacking on. Okay how do I become Garth Brooks? Nothing works like that and I think I always. Kinda felt that things work like that until I just found something that I really liked and it was just just logical stems. It was never like a big plan or yeah it was just. I was good this thing and I did that so I was like well. What's the next thing? How can I improve on this thing? I just did. Hey guys thanks for listening to the Sunday. Sit Down podcast..

Spent fifty five zero weeks at number one on the country chart which tied a record held by Shania Twain he also spun off seven consecutive number one singles. He played. Snl A few weeks ago if you don't know him. I think you're GONNA love him. His whole deal is he's an every man he grew up in North Carolina. He on stage. He's not the guy who has backup dancers. There are a lot of production. He wears a fishing shirt and a trucker hat and literally holds a Red Solo Cup while he sings his songs. If he's got to play the guitar he's got a special Little Red Solo Cup. Mike Stan that he likes to use to hold his drink which I can report to you and you will hear later in our interview. Is Jack in Diet Baby? 'cause YOU GOTTA. Watch the pounds when you're slam Jack Daniels during your shows so we got together a few weeks ago on the eve of his. Snl performance which was a huge crossover moment for Miami. Obviously for the last couple of years has been dominating the country music world he played. Snl In an entire new audience got to know him. Believe it or not look only picked up guitar eight years ago. He was a singer from the time he was a young kid but never played guitar until he was home from college. You went to Appalachian State in North Carolina. He was home and kind of bored and picked up a guitar and started playing. Taught himself started playing local gigs when he got back to college and really used technology different Music APPS and sites that helped him push out his music and gain an audience which now obviously is in the millions and millions so we got together for our conversation here in New York City at a barbecue place called hill country. Good food good music. We're down in the basement. Where they do their live shows. I think every night and Naturally you can see the visual or sitting across from each other in front of the stage with Red Solo Cups. He with Jack and Diet. I think that night I'm going to bet that mine was a makers with splash. Ginger Ale.

You know you don't get to do like I mean even and I haven't been. I'm not going to pretend like I've been doing this for twenty years but we've done a lot in the last couple of years and there's not a lot I that happened. You hear that the people say that you know.

There really isn't a lot of stuff left that we haven't done you know that's definitely one of them is definitely one that we wanted to get wanted to do that. So it's exciting time. I've talked to other artists who've done everything to and they say there's something different about snl play. Arena or stadium that there's something about that little room that night excite into that rush that comes with a live show. Yeah I'm excited. My parents will be. There is really cool You know my my my mom's been in New York wants and I don't think my dad's ever been so it'll be exciting for them to be there and especially because my dad's such fan.
