Tackling Systemic Racism in the Fashion Industry
"I everybody and welcome to today's be O. F. Live event. I'm Lauren Chairman Be Offs Executive Editor and I'm joined today by Brandis Daniel Chief Executive of Harlem's fashioned row Sandrine Charles founder of Sandrine. Charles. Consulting Henrietta Galina Brandon creative consultant, and today we're GONNA be talking about a really important topic always but you know especially in the last few months, how to tackle system racism in fashion it's a really big question I'm sure we'll only. Get Two to one or two points here. But but we want to do as much as we can, and in this hour that we have what I wanted to do I is for each of you to introduce yourselves and what you do in your own activists as well. So maybe talk a bit about what you've been working on in the last couple months as the civil rights movement has really come to the forefront in the US, Henrietta maybe we can start with you. I, everyone I'm Lena. I am a direct up by way of saying have been in the fashion industry for. About fifteen years now. What can range of. Brands. DIFFERENCE CASS grades. and. So. My wife is always been rooted increase efficiency inclusions I've asked. My wife tens of mocks stories. An image making and I would say, miss recently I WANNA be. confounds the cut initiative which Let's have a appoint Yucky. Great. Thank you brandis. What about you? I am the. Founder Pearl Fashion Row and icon sixty Harlem's fashion row has been doing this work thirteen years we on started really kinda focusing on designers of color in creating opportunities for them, connecting them with brands, press, and with consumers as well. we've also done several brand collaborations have been a great way to really bring diversity to brands who who may not have had. It were win couvert hit on the pandemic. We started a nonprofit icon sixty, which is basically a fine or designers of collar and We've been able to raise thanks to the NBA took over a million dollars in donations for designers of. Car. It sandrine last but not least I am. Sandrine. Charles of I have been working in the industry for thirteen years. Now, I own Sandrine Charles Salting, which is a week. Calms and Everything encompassing that agency her fashion and lifestyle brands. In addition, I'm the founder alongside Lindsay People's or the black and fashion council. Thank you offer for sharing that so. I think to start. This is a really big question, but obviously, the civil rights movement that's happening right now has been. Very prominent in the news in the last month, it's obviously never not existed but it suddenly. You know the fifteen percent pledge. Protest every single day. Brands are really saying I. WanNa make a difference they're publicly. Saying I'm going to do all these things to be more diverse, etc, etc. Now, a lot of their ex employees or or. You know. Consumers are calling them out for not practicing what what they are are pre chain and I'm curious to know from you all your all veterans in this industry you've you've witnessed this the systemic racism that is particular to fashion. What what do you think? The biggest issue is Ashen and that we can start working on or You know people are already working on but what is the? Biggest point that we need to tackle in order to start fixing all the little problems that have come out of this. Don't know if one of you wants to start. I'll. Brand half. Start I think on what Sandrine Lindsay is doing is asking with the Black Fashion Council asking brands to actually put a quantitative solution in place it's the same thing that Aurora Jane tasked with a fifteen percent pledge i. think the brands have to fully commit and the way that they can fully commit being you know here's exactly what we're going to do. So when you say I want my sales to get better you don't say go out to your. Team and say, you know what we want better cells next year what you do is you say WanNa ten percent increase we want to fifteen percent increase you know right so you create very clear goals so that you know if you're successful in meeting those goals or not successful meeting notes and if you're not successful, there are things you put in place to make sure you overcome that in me that all it's the same thing with this rain so I think. The first thing that Branston do is say, what is our commitment? What is our our firm commitment? Let's start with a very clear commitment and work our way back because my fear is that if we just start having conversations in conversation is a really key piece to this in having with lack people in non black people ruling to have honest dialogue. But my fear is that if we're only talking is the passion Unin die down in another. Year and I. think that's Oliver Fear Rate. But if you put a very clear plan in place and you say, this is what these are the numbers. We're GONNA hit across our organization that means in our leadership and on our boards because let's talk about boards and how they're barely any black people boards. There's only one black. CEO in the entire fashion industry. So that's just say what are we gonNa do across the Board in our organization? And then you work backwards from the air and doing what you have to do to to meet that goal.
DNA & EOs with Dr. Lindsey Elmore
"All Right folks, I'm here with Dr Lindsay Elmore. One of my favorite human beings on this planet, she's a speaker author, brand strategist podcast host am world renown wellness expert, she translates. Science into understandable stories and travels the world educating audiences about natural wellness Lindsey. Welcome back to the show. Thanks for back. Absolutely thanks for having me back. It's an honour. Well, you're one of my favorite guests becoming a recurring us which I love so I'm glad that you're here today and I'm super excited to talk about this particular topic of DNA and what our DNA can tell us about essential oils, and we've actually had a number of guests on the show before to to cover this topic. But I feel like you're gonNA just sort. Sort of put the icing on top of everything and make it click in people's minds because that's what you're best at just breaking down complicated things and making them simple. So this is part of your thirty podcasts in thirty days. Tell us a little bit more about that. Well I recently started a podcast called the Lindsay elmore show, and I, some of my guests have been have been educating me on how you can. Can Get your podcast out there. If you go on a podcast tour and a few months ago, I was at an event called pod Max and one of the speakers was a writer for four herbs and she had written an article about how she accomplished doing thirty podcasts in thirty days, and I just thought, wow, that sounds really hard and I decided why not give it a try and book as many as you. You can get the word out there and really share all the different facets you know. I. Love Essential Oil. So I'm excited to be here to talk to your audience, but we're also looking at podcast that encompass all of the entrepreneurship that I do the Vegan cooking yoga. Even my new little cat. We've applied to some to some broadcast to talk about you know my first couple of weeks having a kitten and so. A great way I, don't know. So it's a great way to meet New People and to share topics that I care about right. Well, I, love how the podcast world is. So multifaceted in that way, like we are human beings, we are complex creatures and we are both passionate, right. So have been able to find. There's a podcast there for everything. So whatever little passion or hobby or? Or thing that's like in your heart that you want express share with the world. There's a show out there to do just that for people who are hungry for that information, which is one of the reasons I just love podcast. Absolutely. I. Completely agree there. We have come across some crazy crazy podcast and we even applied to one and there was only about the health benefits of olives. Like was like, how do you have a podcast only about that? But there is legitimate podcast for anyone and everyone. That's hilarious. I'M GONNA have to add that into my book that I'm writing about podcast. Dina's is just an example how niche you can make these things. So. Let's dive into the Science DNA. Tell us what gives us like the kindergarten version of what is DNA, and what can you tell us about our bodies. So DNA is basically A. For your body, every single person has DNA and there are building blocks of DNA called base pairs, and we each have about three point two, billion base pairs of DNA, and what we have is these base pairs make called genes. So there's a sequence of the base pairs that make gene the gene in codes, a part of your body bit either contributes to the structure of your body. So you can have a gene that helps to encode for tissues or four bones or for tea. Or you can have genes that encode for the function of your body, and so this could be perhaps an enzyme or it could be a spleen soul that is destined to help clean your blood cells. So DNA it's a blueprint, it's built of base pairs that make up jeans, and then genes encode the structure and function of our bodies. Okay. So with that basis of information there how why, and what, why do? Do essential oils differ in their benefit based on different DNA types like I used to think that all essential oils just kinda did the same thing to everyone and then I started using essential oils in seen how center oils did different things in different people's bodies and I'm like Oh. Why is that his dad because of our DNA? Well, it could be because of your DNA. So within your, DNA, we have. Have things, called snips and the snips Stanford single nuclear tied Holly. MORPHISM 's this is a really fancy term that basically means mutations. We are all mutants because we don't all have matching. DNA. That's what makes us human? That's what makes us beautiful in diverse. So mutation has a bad connotation to it, but really, and truly all mutation is is where they're within those base pairs that are building your DNA there. there. Is a change with one of those base pairs and that is called a single nucleotides polymorphism. So when we look at the population as a whole, we can identify what is the most common nuclear tied sequence within our DNA. This tells us at every single point within the DNA, what is considered the normal trait? Some people have different nucleotides. That's where those snips comment those single nucleotide polymorphisms. So these abnormals. Tides lead to our genetic mutations. Some of them are benign. So some of them don't make any difference. You know you and I could have two different SNIPS and our bodies still functions

Interview With Ben Shapiro, Author Of How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps
"With US co founder Of the daily wire. Ah, host of the Ben Shapiro Show number one New York Times bestseller. His latest book is How to Destroy American Three Easy Steps. Ben. He wrote this book. And we're in the middle of this. We seem to be dead Set on destroying America. Did you give everyone a blueprints or something? I am glad that I cannot take responsibility for it. I did not give them will bring. But I won't say that. When I wrote the book in the summer January, I figured out the relevant I didn't think you'd be quite literally been quite this quickly, like all the all the syndrome that I was talking about taking the country broke out into the open at once. So, you know, forget about the gun violence. What? You talked about the civil unrest in Philadelphia in Oakland in Portland in Seattle in New York City in Austin in Albuquerque. And And in Kansas City. What's going on here? I mean, what we're watching right now is a variety of movements, all pretending, t be about civil rights and moving the country better and then all immediately about making the country worse, But they're really about Castigating America as uniquely horrible castigating America systems as repositories of privilege and evil and saying that those systems need to be torn down. Whether you're talking about black lives matter. Rioters in Los Angeles or New York or Washington, DC, or the top men and rioters in Portland or in Seattle. We're watching in the end is sort of a lion's that says that the United States is bad. It's just that the bleeding spear of an ideology That that claims that the United States of systems are unworthy of continuing and need to be tor now out at the root, and there's a reason that Nicole Hannah Jones is very proud, she said. This on Twitter that did it that count 16 19 project and tackle editor of The New York Times. At this point, she said, on Twitter that she was happy. The people were suggesting that what happened in New York and L. A in Washington, D, C and all over the country that was 16 19 riots, meaning that her perspective on the United States namely that it was rooted in evil. And it's inseparable from that evil. That perspective had taken such hold. Now let me ask you Does that come up in the interview? Hi. How you doing? Tell me about your background. You seem to be a good writer and your view of America. It's terrible needs to be disassembled. And what based on slavery? I think you're the perfect person. We have a column. Feed it right. And we have a news division for you to lead so to prove bench appeal. You're right. I'm looking at, uh Ted Lin Seth. He is somebody who is A, uh, African American activist. He said Oregon is white is hell. Uh, he said that He warned that the black guys, Ah matter movement in the city is being co opted by quote privileged white people with their own agenda. It is not our agenda and double a C P is saying the same thing. Why are you telling us what we need again? If it is a white black thing? Why we, depending why are white people taking the lead is not the ultimate insult, telling black people What they need for justice. Late is pretty incredible. But even it goes back to this view of racism that is actually pushed by people like you bring Candy and Robert Angelo and Kenny, Of course, the author of how to Be a racist and from the Beginning and Financial of the author of My Fragility, their View of the United States that the United States is on only racist, But the racism is embedded in all of its systems. And so the way to you identify raising them. Is not how we used to identify racism used to be. You could pretty easily tell who's the racist who ever thought that there was inferiority or superiority based on racial race, right? That was the definition of racist well, Now they changed the definition. They say Any system that create any sort of racial inequality or results in any sort of racial inequality is a racist system. And if you don't want to tear down the system You are racist. Not only that, if you're a white person, you bear all responsibility for this so nobly bears responsibility for the success of white privilege to have lived under and propagated this particular system. What That doesn't mean that white people are still in charge. And the white people are the are the people who have you know, in the sort of old Runyon Kipling phrase that the white man burden to fix the entire system. And so what That means that the views of people of color actually don't matter. The only ones that actually matter are the views of people like Robin D'Angelo was going to cure the country of Whiteness and hat and take on the past in of the United States, So that's why you see these bizarre videos of these white protesters lecture and black ops about what America needs on racism. But I also find her standing, too, is the place they're just overrun with gun violence. And that, of course, is Chicago with great Rahm Emanuel rained and left with his tail between his legs but came out with his chest high with his with his chin in the air in his chest pumped out as if he was a great victor. So because the president did states actually did what he said he was going to use his Listen. I'm gonna send some federal help in there. To not to handle protesters on the Christopher Columbus statue. No, but to find out about these guys. Gangs there were running rampant and the sub gangs that are killing each other. They're shooting each other at funerals at funerals. And here's the mayor. Who blames it on who blames this whole thing on the president's and his willingness to cab federal help cut seven I've drawn a very hardline will not allow federal troops in our city. We will not tolerate unnamed agents, taking people off the street, violating their rights and holding them in custody. That's not happening here in Chicago, so I've drawn a very, very bright line. I've made that very clear to every federal authority that I have spoken with. And they understand that if they cross that line We will not hesitate to use every tool at our disposal to stop troops and unwanted agents in our city. So this woman who should be begging for help with 117,000 gang members, 55 known gangs 747 factions, and they say there are 2500 subsets of those major gangs. You think this won't be begging for help? Instead, she's drawing the line and went through. When push comes to shove, she'll take down Columbus a statue. What planet are we on, Ben? We're on a planet where one of the one of the tactics But that's being used by mayors across the country who are on the left is something that unauthorized infront Eagle, who would the counter of City Institute hey called the riot ideology. The basic idea here back in the 19 sixties, and that was the riots or sometimes useful because politicians will use them as a way to club the citizenry into essentially giving the rioters what they want. So Marion Barry technically did this in Washington, DC He wouldn't work with people outside the governments who are protesting, but actually, we're in Aged in violence, and then he would basically say that the taxpayer to do all these people will stop here to the five things you need to do this something John Lindsay in New York City during the 19 sixties. He basically said the way that we can help alleviate the underlying problems here and do all the things we want you to do. Well, if you're a leftist politicians, you have two possible sort of solutions here. One is that you surrender to the protesters simply because You are afraid that they are more work than you are. And that you're going to be castigated is insufficiently weapons. And at the same time you can go to the citizenry consideration. We can alleviate all these problems. All you have to do these things. I want you to know you're starting to see hints of this nationally. By the way, you're starting to see writers say things like, you know, it's awful. This is Trump resign tonight. You're saying that part out loud, Which is it? This whole thing is about you wanting what you want, and you're only going to stop this democratic elected So essentially, you're threatening the law abiding citizens of the United States. You're going to continue violating law and wrecking major cities and shutting down major cities in six PM and curfews unless you get what you want. Well, that's never believe him. Ocracy is operated and no democracy can operate under those conditions. So, Ben, do you get the sense in looking at your book? There are reasonable people in the middle that understand when a mayor Lightfoot says things the way they do way, understand that these liberal mayor's saying, this is going to be the summer of love in Portland and then see the ransacking of a city like we're seeing, and now we see it re re igniting in Seattle. So when do you get the sense that there's a majority of Americans who who don't care about the politics but a logical enough to see the problem? So I think that most Americans, definitely the problem. I think the biggest problem right now is that the media is such an incredible job of making intimate. Everybody's focusing on President Trump that they've ignored the real problems that are played in the country right now, and they're downplaying it purposefully in order to convince Americans that none of this is happening, how you get that, during that quote, where, he says there's no such thing as in chief of violence. And the only way that you could do that number one of your delusional but number two. If you really think that you could get away with that, and the media decided point again, which they have been playing, So do I think that the vast majority of Americans are happy to go along with us. No, I think the best majority Americans know that this is nonsense. But I think that the polarization around the election is so effective and so effective around President Trump. This is the media have basically been able to make this a referendum on Trump as opposed to a referendum on violence. And this is why it's very important to President Trump be incredibly focused last 100 days of this campaign he really needs Prevent the media from using distraction in order to avoid the logical conclusion here, which is that if you actually want this stuff to stop and not paid to rioters and looters and protesters, then what you actually need is somebody who is going to affect you wait longer. The president needs to make that message inescapable until you can offer the sort of distraction that maybe sometimes I wonder if you know one thing I have to say he's been pretty discipline. I thought he had a very good week last week. He definitely saw the change in messaging, and I do think 99 days in this In this world we're in is a lifetime. I agree. I agree. I think last week was much much better, and we just need to see that we just need to see them and we don't want this to become you know that that image from the Simpson nations work actually read that back to zero. Instead. What we just want is consistent level of solidity coming from the White House looking people have been, I think, begging for this from the beginning because President Trump's policies are actually quite popular. And when President Trump 16 script that he is quite popular, the problem is that he hasn't so if he can actually being here's the discouraging part. He's down in the polls. The encouragement He performed about badly de cluttering will have three months and just not not in terms of policy. But in terms of stuff he's been saying would mean that this is a low water mark, and you're going to see him rise in the polls are gonna start to see things tighten up a little bit at the very least before the election, and if he's disciplined, and if he can point to this he really has to do is point you say well, what Democrats are supporting worst. Joe Biden condemning these riots. Worthy. He's hiding in the basement. Where is it? You want to do an interview? Chris Wallace, it Trump can do that and be consistent about it. Then I think this election's been tied up with her. But I just think that we're not looking at Barack Obama had 5 48 years old with his his eloquent speech and promises that he couldn't fulfill. But you say Well, pretty talented guy, Bill Clinton. He had all his personal problems. But man, can he speak, and he certainly was comfortable on a myriad of issues. No one doubted his intellect. But when you look at Joe Biden, he's the worst candidate that I have seen in my lifetime. And if President Trump can close the gap and force him to actually campaign That would actually be an exponential gain for him. I mean, no question. I mean, Joe Biden is an extraordinarily we candidate who's being benefited by two particular circumstances. One Kobe has made it so he doesn't have to go out and campaign is actually benefiting him tremendously. He just gets to stay home and talk to friendly's basically was really nice for him. He doesn't have to demonstrate any level of potential energy. It all on number two is the fact that he's campaigning. As I said before, essentially the dead person. He's basically what you're saying. I am. A tree stump. And you don't like trump to vote for the tree stump. And so that makes it really a referendum on Trump, which means that this is very much about hands from shift the burden of proof back to buy as opposed to letting it sit on his own shoulders. So then, Lastly, you write the book how to destroy America in three easy steps. I felt as though I am well the book by just reading the news. Unfortunately, if the word destroyed does work, and it is getting, I think it's beginning TTO unnerve our allies. What's happening in our country right now. What is the element that we could see around the bend that would make you believe that we are on that path that we have not discussed yet? I think that the one thing that they would allow us to recover here is a renewed sense of what America's history is all about What the book really does juxtaposed to stations in the country. One is what I thought it's not really left right. So much of it is unions versus disintegration is Do we even want to be a country anymore? If we do we have to have a shared philosophy rooted in the declaration of Independence have assured culture rooted Masonic institutions like churches. And school that values entrepreneurship adventure that values taking care of neighbor. And then if we and we all have a shared history, we have to have a belief that the United States actually an incredibly glorious place. That glorious place ought to be of help. If we don't have those things were gonna fall apart. I think that can be re invoke ated. You've seen Antifa. I mean, they don't. They don't seem to like you. They seem to show up with some of your speeches. Are you seeing their imprint on, especially over in Oregon in Seattle? Hundreds. I mean, you can see all the hall marks mean There's certain things you just look for visually raising both flags. You see the You see the red flags You see people who are dressed, own blast at the bicycle helmet and the goggles. You know this is it's perfectly obvious to everybody that he was deeply involved in very active in Portland for years reporter and you know, it has pointed out another action in Seattle as well. Look at what you're going to see right now. And this is the most predictable effect is a mass, a mass evacuation of major setting two years to see everybody who can afford to leave these nature city. But his major said, because who wants to live there? I want to pay inordinate taxes in order. Get shut down in 68 every night watcher business burnout. It doesn't come in a party today. I think figure I never sent right as a broadcast from New York City virtually alone. There is nobody here, Uh, Bank. Congratulations on the book. How to destroy American. Three Easy steps, continue to get the word out and continue not to take a step backwards. Thanks. Appreciate it.

County's Cities Demand Los Angeles Share CARES Act Funding with Them
"Independent cities in Los Angeles County are raising their voices demanding to know when and if funding from the federal government to deal with the impacts of the covert 19 pandemic will ever make its way to those cities for their critical needs. All the county of L. A got a $1,000,000,000 cares Act funding West.

Is This The NFL's #MeToo Moment?
"Can you give us a sense of the build up to the publication of this report? So there's been a lot of drama swirling around the Washington football team, but suddenly started to get all of these dots that you could start connecting. There's a lot going on within the front office. That really doesn't add up firings in retirement in July in the NFL. Rarely happening tonight. We're! And we're too high level personnel executives who were abruptly fired and Alex Santos in Richard. Man were fire. No reason was given as to why they were fired. Then today, longtime radio announcer for the Washington football club Larry Michael announcing his retirement, he spent sixteen years with the team, the man who had been there the radio voice, he abruptly retired without any sort of official comment from the team, and he started to hear this buzz rumors flying about a potential bombshell report on Washington's football team and owner Dan Snyder. This is absolutely taken over social media with speculation running rampant then by Thursday afternoon. The Washington Post dropped the story. There fifteen women who went on the record, alleging widespread sexual harassment within the Washington football organization that spanned just about Daniel Snyder entire time that he is owned the team, so these were women who works across the organization in marketing and ticketing and finance in there were also two female reporters, one who formerly covered the team for the Washington Times and Rianne and Walker our colleague from the athletic, who also went on the record to accuse one of the men who had? had been fired of sexual harassment as well. It was the sprawling account as you mentioned fifteen women accusing sexual harassment in Washington. Can you summarize some of those accusations? Yes, so it was a lot of the very classic cases of sexual harassment things from making lewd comments about women's bodies about their breasts about their rear ends about the the clothes they were wearing to very overt sexual comments, propositioning requests to go on dates, just a lot of overall inappropriate workplace behavior. Behavior from superiors directed at female employees, and it did not seem to be a secret. Some of these women who went on the record with the Washington, post talked about how the other people who worked in the organization knew about it. They talked about it amongst themselves. There were places in the building where women were advised not to go. Specifically, there was a stairwell that had basically transparent stairs and women were told. Do not go there because there were men who. Who would stand underneath that and look up? Their female colleagues skirts all of these things that are blatantly inappropriate and wrong and workplace environment, but had been persisting for more than a decade, all fifteen of these women went on the record, but one of the few who allowed her name to be published is a woman named Emily applegate. What was her experience like working inside the Washington Organization? It was miserable it really most people know times a comment on my appearin. Screaming at you for something that you, it's not your fault. And then somebody makes a comment to you about what you're wearing and it just snowballs from there. she cried at work regularly, she felt belittled, imagined us being called stupid on a daily basis, and then also almost in the same breath being hit on for your appearance. It's a miserable work experience. Experience to the point where she no longer wanted to work there anymore and no longer even wanted to work in sports, and we should note that Emily applegate's former boss Mitch Gershman who was the team CEO at the time both denied and said he didn't recall conversations referenced by Applegate, telling The Washington Post quote I can't comment on something I can't remember. But Lindsay what actions has the team taken in response to these accusations from emily applegate, and the many other women, well many of the men who were accused in this story, all ready been fired, and we're kind of fired in the process of the Washington Post. Reporting this story, the team can say that has taken measures to address this because some of these accusations date back to the early to mid two thousands, so some of these people no longer actually work with the team and then some of the people. People that had new allegations have immediately been fired or left the team. They've started their own investigation. They hired an attorney Beth Wilkinson. The name might sound familiar over the last several years. Wilkinson took part in notable cases involving Hillary. Clinton Brett Cavenaugh and Michael Flynn and she told us we can confirm that our firm was retained by the team to do an independent review of the team's culture policies and allegations of workplace, misconduct and Daniel. Snyder and his wife sent an internal email to everybody who works organization to. To apologize for the culture, the statement saying in part, the behavior described in yesterday's Washington Post. Article has no place in our franchise or society. The story has strengthened my commitment to setting a new culture and standard for our team, but without specific apologies to any of the employees into these women, and there have also not been any public apologies to the two female reporters who were not team employees. The team has not publicly addressed them as well

Dr. James Lindsay on the Danger of Postmodernism, Cynical Theory, & the "Woke Culture"
"Hey welcomed the dose of leadership so happier tuning in. Hey, it's been about three weeks since released an episode and done that intentionally. I take an almost a sabbatical. And I'm going to say that this episode going to here today and from this point forward. Shifting a little bit I'm taking a point I'm not changing the show too much, but if you listen to the intro the show or when I sat down, and I wrote the mission statement, or at least the purpose of the show. The idea was to talk about real life leadership. An influence experts who dedicate their lives to the pursuit of the truth, commonsense courageous leadership that is stands to this day in even this pivot where I'm going. That hasn't changed. But. When I look back at over four hundred plus episodes in the conversations, and I enjoy every single one of them and sometimes people I don't even know even business owners doesn't matter if they're famous or not. I always get something out of the conversation. But I gotta be honest with you I've been struggling. Particularly the last three weeks, and this is why I've taken. A Sabbatical is telling myself. Where am I taking the show? What am I doing because in the light of everything that has happened in this crazier that we're calling twenty twenty. Something was sitting right with me and as they go forward in an certainly look. I get thirty to fifty requests a day for people to come on my show and I wish I could help everybody out and have him on, but sometimes I just don't WanNa Talk to another CEO Entrepreneur listen to their story about how they started a business and you know. What was the dark moments in? In. How did they recover because I know what they're going to say and I don't mean that with any disrespect to the individuals and I know everybody has their own story and again even if I would do even if I thought the answer is going to be the same I always learn something from every conversation would again in the light of everything that's been going on in the world. And both, personally in my personal life to things that have happened it seems almost the Nila to sit there and talk about or talk to another entrepreneur and talk about. How they became successful. Again not to take anything away from that, but I. I know what the answers are going to be I know. What they did to overcome. It's the same things that we've talked about when you I mean there's themes when you talk to four hundred people, some themes tend to emerge, and I stand by them, and it's the pursuit of authenticity persona, being transparent, being vulnerable, most importantly, being courageous, and and certainly being tenacious. The things that we all need to be reminded of and uncertainly we'll have other conversations. Other people in those things will come up and I will embrace those, but again going back in the light of what's been going on in the world, and it seems a I'm concerned, and as you probably are too, and it's a crazy uncharted territory and one thing that's always been bothering me in where I think I. WanNa sort having conversations way. Having conversations about is. Where is this going? Because one of the challenges of what we see is going on in society, and particularly when we're. Again looking kind of at the post modernism. Since my frustration is is is I feel. Politically homeless, I feel. That there's no place for me to go. There's no place to turn and then I said we'll. This podcast is the answer. It's start having conversations with people. Because it affects our leadership. It affects leadership of organizations are leaderships. Of our homes in our own personal growth, and what I mean by that is the challenge that we see or the big problem or a big part of I think a lot of problems or at least a lot of the enzyme. Everybody's dealing with is this. This culture war that were in the middle of. And it goes deeper than. Political, correctness. But there's nowhere to go, or there's few places to go, and they're certainly not highlighted where people can have these open and nothing. Conversations were conversations about our social political or culture conversations can flourish in ways that aren't stagnant, because let's be honest. All those conversations have become stagnant. Conservatives are expected to say consider things. Progressives are expected. Say Progressive Things. Were struggling to communicate effectively with with everybody. We need to be able to talk to each other authentically compassionately, and that's where I wanNA steal the show. That's what I WANNA. Do in large measure to kind of. Authentically compassionately, but courageously debunk, or at least head on this kind of idea of postmodernism critical theory. Systemic put whatever you want behind it. CYNIC racism sexism. Those conversations that to be quite honest. I see are very bullying. Bullying very controlled a movement. That doesn't heavy-handed bullying tactics. And, because of the age of the Internet changing the meaning of many words themselves in a way, basically destroying commonsense.
Tyra Banks to host 'Dancing with the Stars'
"Let's move on tyra banks, who is head into the ballroom? ABC announced she's joining dancing with the stars, not only as the new host, but also an executive producer. This news comes just one day after it was revealed Tom Birger on Erin Andrews are leaving, so the show can head in a new creative direction. What do you guys think? Is tyrod thick? Love it I mean. Do you remember the storytelling on America's next top model? The you remember tire being extra extra on top of extra on. I think the TYRA banks, not only as a host will should be good, but as a producer. She has a Rolodex that has spanned it over thirty years in the business. She can get some real names in here. You WanNa see ya shields on that floor. You Wanna go ahead and see Cindy Crawford like she can call those people up. Brilliant leading lady, she's a very in-command.

She will. He doesn't think that she'll. She'll work with anyone or have a co host. I. Don't think she would I think I. Think for her Sheep Command so much money and she doesn't need a coast. She's extra alone and she can handle it, but she has to have one Naomi Campbell because she disagreed with her. Okay all right, the guy that'll be hated, but I think my favorite dancer of all time as Lindsay Lohan in Las Club, so I think having tire eighty percent of the time Lindsay, twenty percent of the time and we've got.

Ghislaine Maxwell due to appear at bail hearing
"Girlfriend and suspected accomplice in his alleged sex trafficking ring will appear in front of a judge today. As prosecutors revealed startling new details about her arrest earlier this month. Court documents filed by Delaine Maxwell's attorneys claim the 58 year old British socialite who they say hasn't left the country since Jeffrey Epstein's arrest last July is not a flight risk. Her legal team is offering a $5 million bail package to secure her release. That funding is back by six co signers, Maxwell siblings, relatives and friends and includes property in the UK valued at roughly $3.75 million. CBS News Legal analysts Rikki Klieman says Maxwell's attorney's face a major burden and advocating for her bail but have made a solid case. The defense wrote a very persuasive memorandum. More important, Perhaps even then, the package is the reasoning. Number 1/19 that not only might kill the lane Maxwell would certainly would not benefit the victims off Jeffrey Epstein and allegedly of Alain Maxwell. But secondly, what they are you Is the fact that she was never hiding. It is possible. Then Maxwell's team says she simply left the public eye to avoid media attention and scrutiny. But prosecutors believe Maxwell has tried to hide before and does present a flight risk. According to court documents. When FBI agents approached Maxwell's New Hampshire home, she fled to another room. Investigators also claim they noticed a cellphone wrapped in tin foil, which prosecutors called a seemingly misguided effort to evade law enforcement. The same documents reveal. Maxwell is linked to more than a dozen bank accounts around the world, worth more than $20 million in total and has three passports in her name. Last summer, Jeffrey Epstein died by hanging while awaiting trial at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. It prompted intense scrutiny over How the jail was run and outrage on behalf of the obscene accusers who were unable to face him in court. Maxwell is being held in a similar facility roughly five miles from where Epstein died Since her arrival at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn. Details have emerged about what's being done to protect Maxwell. Law enforcement officials confirmed to CBS News that Maxwell Sheets were taken away and she wore prison issue clothes made of paper. I think you have to assume people do want her dead. Cameron Lindsay served as the warden of the Brooklyn jail from 2007 to 2009 where Maxwell is currently being held. Miss Maxwell allegedly knows some very, very damaging information about a multitude of allegedly very important people. It is just absolutely essential that the government get this right that.
Serbia-Kosovo talks 'back on track
"Now Serbia has refused to recognize Kosovo's statehood since Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in two thousand and eight, nearly a decade after a very bloody war dialogue between Belgrade and Prishtina began in two thousand eleven, producing some thirty agreements most of them, though a not observed, but after talks broke down a couple of years ago, the parties are communicating again with both the EU and the US weighing in well for more I'm joined by James, Kara Lindsay who's visiting professor at the NFC and author of the politics of recognition and engagement, e you, member-state relations with Kosovo James Let's begin with the US involvement. Where do we stand with this? Well. There was a lot of excitement that the united. States was getting involved in this process a couple of years ago. There was a sense Washington really wants it's gets are. Big International Agreement. This was going to be one of trump's moments of glory. That was going to get reelected. And so there was a lot of activity that was going on. By the United States role, the separate from the e U process switch continuing as you've noted since two thousand eleven. But recently it's basically collapsed in this collapse for number of reasons one because they would charges brought against the presidents of Kosovo. For War Crimes but also I think that we just up against the clock in the United States Rick. Grenell the US ambassador to Germany, who was handling this? It looks like he's going to be very involved in trump's reelection campaign, and as we know it less than four months to go before the US election. I, think the latest sellings way hand over to Europe is saying look I've. Got To be dealing with now, so the ball is very very certainly back in the European court now and there was a video summit on Friday chaired by the the the Cherry double-act Merckel macron. What what transpired? The the problem as Well. There's a whole range of problems. As again as you noted as being a range of agreements have been put in place over the past, a number of years most which haven't really been observed, but there's also been deep divisions within the European Union about what they want. Now there's been a number of proposals being coming forward a nice been suggestions that the President Sukasto vote and Serbia. Actually at one point very close to a deal, but controversially that would include some so the territorial swap and we know that Germany in actual fact Britain as well a very very opposed to this. The. Americans on the other hand seem to be open to the idea although they seem to be a rowing buckle now now. I'm so the probably essentially have is that we need a big picture secondments here and the Europeans have been pressing so small normalization agreements, which is all very well and good boots. As I'm saying I worked Cypress pathetic years, and these small agreements, a justice difficult to get into place, and even more typical in many ways to implement than actually spending time focusing on a big picture final deal, and so I think this is the real question about half now. Is it going to be back to try to get these piecemeal agreements that don't really work or all week in the focus on the big picture? Final settlements. Will really put this issue behind both Kosovo. and Serbia and of course that question becomes very urgent, because it looks as if the leaders of Serbia in Kosovo will meet face to face in Brussels later this week. Yes I'm I mean to be honest with you? I don't think anyone's really expecting that. We can see any big breakthroughs now. and I again. I'm I'm very very skeptical that you're really even knows what it wants. the IT could be a return to these sort of. These small bitsy talks which you don't get me wrong. These are important things that needs to be doubts which will make long foot for people in costumes survey much better. But like a Lotta people a my view is the you sold. If they were the big picture deal, anyway and so what you're doing is many ways wasting time on energy block treasurer on all these trying to get these small agreements, which in the end don't really get implemented because that fundamental big picture agreement so. I I think the big problem here is that it's it's. Europe's coming at the wrong way. I mean Europe officials as saying that resolution is the only way that Serbia and Kosovo seek to become members of the EU. Do you think that that's a big enough incentive? Well. I mean I. Get sent certainly in Kosovo there is. A growing realization something needs to be done so often. Votes Clayton dependency. The was that we go from. There was a we've got. The Americans behind US rebuilt the British the French recalled Germans. They're going to go out and tell. The world recognized Kosovo and in the first few years. That seems to be what was happening and we got to a point where about one, hundred ten or hundred thirteen of the one hundred ninety three members of the UN recognized. Kosovo But Russia and China refuse to recognize it, so that prevents full you and membership, but what we've seen in the past couple of years is Serbia's lobbied countries to withdraw that recognition of Kosovo is now recognized about ninety seven countries so I think in Prishtina this realization if we want to join the UN if we want to be a normal, fully accepted country on the world stage, we've got to reach a final deal with Belgrade. What is it that we? We can offer Belgrade. The Belgrade might be willing to accept. The trump is what it sink. President Sanctuary was willing to offer Belgrade's. The German said No. We're not willing to allow it to go that far because if you stop changing borders between Serbian, Kosovo. Even if this is consensual, you'll not problems north Macedonia and Bosnia so we we have a fundamental problem here of how we're going to deal with something that frankly speaking could be dealt with sally easily. If, there was sort of coincidence abuse amongst the Americans, the Europeans, subs and the Kosovo Albanians James. Thank you very much? Indeed, that's James Collins.

"Hey guys. I'm Lindsay's Arctic and this is players conversations with athletes artists entertainers about their interest in sports and vice versa. And what they've learned along the way this is part two of the Washington nationals journey to the world series win through the eyes of star Pitcher Max Scherzer and those close to him as I was covering the story and is the team continued to fight adversity and beat the odds. Sherzad kept referencing. His wife Erika so in this episode. You're going to get a closer look at who Erica. Sherzer is and how she factored into that world series win without even realizing it the night. The nationals won the world series. She talked to me on the field after and shared what I found was fascinating insight into how the wives role is just as vital as a position on the field. I think it's easy for them to give up hope at times when my who thinks get frustrating and struggle and we can see it from an outside point of view. And that's why I think I was telling you the other night like we have to be that support system and we have to be the one that absorbs everything for them and just keeps going and keeps them going and one of our closest friends that also baseball. I says you have to be cheerleader. You have to be there for them and just keep on going and keep him going. And that's what we try to do back at hard. I mean it's hard but that's why I'm here for like I love the heck out of him. I'm going to do anything for him. Let me give you a little context on Max and Erica. And I'M GONNA start with Erica because when you first meet her. She's striking. She's super tall. She's beautiful but beyond that. What hits you immediately as how warm she is. How are tickets? She is and besides being a great mom supporter for Max. She's also doing a ton of work in the community and elsewhere maximum. Erica met the first week of college her freshman year at the University of Missouri where she played softball when one of her teammates introduce them. Eric told me it was his smile. That grabbed her attention. I in fact he was really romantic. I love thinking about that juxtaposition from the Max we see with his intensity on the mound. What intrigued me about the two of them as a couple is both were athletes stellar athletes and from growing up to college to the pros. Erica told me they both came close to winning titles including when Max's Detroit Tigers lost the world series to the giants in two thousand twelve but neither had ever won a championship so this run meant something special and their bond is something fierce. We begin where we left off the morning of game five of the World Series Max. Sherzer that night starter. He was in so much pain he could barely move. Erica was just starting your day taking care of her two little girls and Max was about to change everything and it was awful. I knew we'd done some treatment in game four Tried to get ready for game five to get ready and I went to bed at night thinking I was All right let's hope that treatment works and wake up and you know hopefully I feel good him and we we just go Remember Waking Up and I could just feel in my trap that no. It went backwards. That were the arm right now. I came. Turn my head I'm mike hobbling up stairs and stuff so I knew I was in a really bad spot. You know where you try and make a star in its game five of the World Series and I've done crazy things and you know maybe there's a way to pitch through it and as I continue to you know. Try address myself because even dress myself so it was just You know it was just a real bad spot. Realizing that There's just no way I'm going to make it Not with not with this type of pain. There's no way you can. You can fight this type of pain. I mean I can't lift my arm. How am I gonNA throw a ball with the girls and everything and he walked down the stairs and couldn't even move? All he could do was walk. He couldn't do anything else and I could just see the look in his face so I drop everything and go to him and it just it was just that feeling of knowing what is at stake and this is bad and so I just. Maybe it's the the mom in me but I just went into that lake that mom mode. Okay you're going to be okay. We're into this. We have to this. I we'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA showered. We're going to address. We're going to do this Texas Person I've got this. I'll text these people say you just went into that. That mode of here's what we have to do. And I'm taking over this and it just I don't know it. It was awful and now a good moment but then as I got closer to park like yeah it's timeless job. Ross. No HE'S GONNA. Start so some a text message out like hey I know you guys who kind of knew I was not a good spot and you know I was talking to Joe Throughout the play offs and just different things that he was working on and he was saying this whole time to get a moment. Hey pitching game too and he and he actually looked really good and so You know for me I I knew I knew. At the moment I was not better job. Ross I saw what he had done. There was no way I could do this. That it's his turn to take the ball and text messages. Say get ready. You know you're going to have it to Joe. Roth told me when he got that text message from Max Sherzer that he was obviously concerned for his teammate. He was shocked but he did say there was a sense of adrenaline. That kicked in with the news that he could end up being the guy to pitch game five. He said he didn't really believe it would happen. Though until within the hour he got a phone call from national's management saying you are GonNa be the one. Meanwhile the nationals were in the midst of calling an impromptu press conference to announce the news. Everyone was shocked to hear. If you all know Max obviously pitcher with a broken nose he's been hurt before he's gone through things and when he comes in and says that he's hurt this bad he's hurt and I can tell you now that he's he's very upset. He wants to be out there with his teammates But hopefully we can get him back here for either game six or seven. I'm disappointed as I possibly can. And beyond that pitched I mean that's game five of the World Series I. I've pitched through so much crap in my career. That would be easy to pitch at this point. This is literally impossible to do anything with. Nobody knew what to think. There was a sense of shock inside that Media Room. As thirty to forty members of the media listened to that news and as we all walk back out onto the field. I remember thinking. Did that really just happen? And what's going to happen next? I was there covering that. Game for. Nbc in Washington. I had seen my former ESPN colleague. Tim Kurkin there on the field just prior to that press conference in Iran to Tim. Because I wanted to find out what were his thoughts. A guy who's covered major league baseball for forty years his thoughts on what we just saw. Hap what is your take on what we saw happen tonight. What magazine before this drug just goes to show you how difficult it is to play? Major League baseball if you're injured and he is really injured. Mark Sharon told us he's had that exact thing and it takes a good three days to get better and he said in the meantime. You can't do anything you can't shave. You can't move your head nothing all you WanNa do is just lie down and stay still. I think he's GonNa Pitch Game Seven if there is a game seven now. Obviously a lot has to happen before then and he's going to have to recover but knowing Max Scherzer. There's any chance he can pitch he's going to pitch. Did you think he was going to be able to play? I kept asking him. What did the doctor say and he said they told him he would be ready in forty eight hours that he just needed the shot to kick in and so I said just trust. The doctors trust the process and I mean he seemed.

"Time received some crazy baseball. We've crazy baseball. Heaven sitting in and some of the Games in the postseason series have gone on here. We've been some crazy games. I've not gone away so we know I think we all respect How how old. And Carl's point game and how all the grind Just because we're wanting you can't have that Eaton's holiday that him on her side but not not in. Not In baseball baseball anything can happen. You can win four games in the baseball so I don't want to take lightly given what we understand. Our opponent is a very vulnerable. What about you In terms of you know what does this mean to you. I guess this time or why like the other the game. You had game to LCS When you dominated you know what what made that different for you than maybe other Games I mean in terms of just what it meant or you know what I mean is you've had such a stellar career can get better you know when the whole thing it was that simple and that night. Max Get one step closer because the national swept the cardinals. The atmosphere was insane. The energy was through the roof as the team partied on the field. I went onto the field and I saw Max. He found his wife Erika. They were hugging when he looked up and saw his is. There were tears in his eyes. I remember them sparkling diamonds and his smile was so wide that I knew it was going to hurt so bad. The next day I ask Max's wife Erica. What the pivotal moment for her and this whole journey was and she actually took it back to that very moment. Gosh when they clinched the and I'll see us seeing him on the stage like looking at like when we caught is same thing with the world series and also because it was like we're going back there was just something to it But even just with the world series once they got that final out just like falling into the seats crying. Just like it really. It was this sense of disbelief like it really happened it. Just it was amazing on the field and I will never forget this. Max Screamed at the top of his lungs. We're going to the world series. I left that scene. I was walking off the field and I saw someone I recognized. I saw former national superstar. Jason Worth who had retired and I remember thinking what the heck is Jason. Worth doing here and he was looking he was soaking it. All in. Here's what he said. Why did you come back well? I've talked good questions. I think I think looking back on it. I was just Poland for these guys. Obviously and then now what what these guys were were doing and kind of seeing it through. I think is what is basically is why I went. I wanted I wanted to see you know. I wanted to see it finally accomplish. It was my dream to win. A World Series in Washington obviously didn't accomplish that. But you know a lot of things The seven years I was there and then you know. Here's these guys that a lot of these guys. I watched grow up and hone forum in Canada. See this whole thing. Come to fruition in my own career and and and. I think that's that was the Big Bang just the closer the possibility of it all kind of coming together the way we planned it and wanted to wanted to see it through and You know be there and see a person because as you know. Sporting events are always better in person. Jason Worth was about to watch one of the wildest World Series in Major League Baseball history. The nationals were headed to Houston for games one and two Max. Scherzer was on the mound for game. One it was a rough start. He allowed to run double in the first inning but he regained his control. Kept THE ASTROS AT BAY. Earning the win. The nationals took both games in Texas but then something nobody expected they lost the next two back in Washington. Dc but it was Max who was set to start game five hoping to give his team a chance to head back to Texas. Just one win away from a world series title but what no one knew is. Max was hurting. We've done in treatment of Kim Ford trying to get ready for five to get ready and You I went to bed at night. I was all right. It was hoped that she works. Wake up over this. I feel good. I mean we just go never waking up and you just feel in my trap no backwards that were. I'd already been up and with the girls and everything and he walked down the stairs and just couldn't even move. All he could do was walk. He couldn't do anything else and I could just see the look on his face. Swipe drop everything and go to him and it just it was just that feeling of knowing what is at stake. This is bad and so I just maybe. It's the the mom in me but I just went into that lake that mom mode. Now you're GONNA YOU'RE GONNA be okay. We're into this. We have to do this. I we're GonNa get you fed showered. We're going to get dressed. We're GONNA do this Texas Person. I've got this Texas people say don't bug you just went into that that mode of here's what we have to do and I'm taking over this and it just I don't know it. It was awful. If you all know Max you know He. Obviously you picture a broken nose. He's been hurt before he's gone through things and when he comes in and says that he's hurt this bad he's hurt. That was nationals manager. Dave Martinez the moment he announced Max. Scherzer would not be pitching game. Five of the world series. It was so quiet in that room where the press conference was held. People were in shock walking back to the field in next week's episode the aftermath the national reaction to Max's injury also hearing for Max in his own words Jason.

"But as pressure because you wanna make sure you go out there, and and really get the crowd warmed up for him. I mean, that's that's what I that's what I'm getting paid to do this. What I've been asked to do. And and getting the direct support slot is at this early in my career is a massive step up, and I'm super excited to get that opportunity. What happens after you leave the stage in that role as direct support? Like, what are you? You just kinda hang hang out like for us. We like to play lots of games, usually though, you go out, and you watch the rest of the show the rest of the show and enjoy it. But you taking notes too because it's might be. But I take mental notes like, you know, somebody who's obviously been around that long and has had a career like that. I mean, they obviously do a lot of things that are right. So yeah, you just sit back. You learn what works and what you can do in your own way. Maybe you get this from just small little tanks. You never know. Just ask you the question that probably is going to sound like the most question you've ever heard. I always wonder when I watch people because I love to show is and how do you remember every single leering, and you don't forget ever, and you're just playing your songs in. It's just I mean is there is that really the most city audit question you remember her? Heard or is there. Oh, no. I mean, if you if you have been to any show, you Alern that every night, I will screw up lyrics to songs and always happens. And you just at the end of the day. You just laugh it off. There's not it's not gonna make her bright your show. But I guarantee people don't even know, you know, half the people definitely don't know. But but yes, one of those moments that you feel dumb in the moment. But at the end of the day if you take a step back. It's like it's not that big of a deal like hockey when I watch hockey. I'm like, wow, they're such great athletes, and by the way there on ice do your name or it's like, oh, yeah. You're up there and you're performing and by the way, you remember the whole set lists in the hall, right? Anyway. Maybe that's about it anything. I mean, the more you get used to doing something the easier. It is. But yeah, I mean, you have nights where you're not all as on as you were other nights and offer get lyrics all the time. But that ain't no big deal is what it is. You just go up there. And you you do the best you can. And sometimes you're gonna mess up. Nobody's perfect in that moment. You know what? I mean, you just have fun and hope that the people that paid their money to be there leave thanking well, it was a fun show. I love. Go see him again. That's ultimately what you want. What's your Super Bowl? What would be your Super Bowl moment? Super Bowl moment. For me. As an artist to grow to have my career grow to the point to where I can play in a stadium, but the Super Bowl moment for me. One million percent would be to headline. Carolina Panthers football stadium. That would be huge. I love to get to that point in your career to where you can headline of stadium, but go to the stadium that you been a million times to watch football games. But now, you play music in it, and all those people have shown up for you would be the pentacle..

"Hey there, I'm Lindsay aren't and this is players conversations with country music artists about their interest in sports, and I am so excited to bring you this episode because it was so much fun to be in a room with these two guys. And this is the first time on this podcast that I've been able to sit down and artists with an athlete in the same room in what I saw come out of that room. It was magic to be in that conversation because there was so much that these two gentlemen had in common. It was Christly and Thomas Davis Chris lane country star on the rise one of his hits. I don't know about you. It's phenomenal song. I love it. He's going to be on tour starting in March with Dan shea. But he's also joining Brad Paisley's tour opening for him for his summer tour. Thomas Davis is the Panthers linebacker, and he is a pro bowler. He's played in two Super Bowls one of them. His arm was barely attached to his body. And he tells that story it was phenomenally interesting, but Thomas Davis now finds himself in an interesting position because he is a free agent in the NFL. And I appreciate his honesty when talking about that situation because it was when he did not expect. But what I found here is these to their friends they've known each other. I didn't know just how deep their bond was what I did know was that Thomas Davis post stuff on Instagram of his interest in liking Chris lane. And he's even sung his songs there when he's been with his family on vacation. And then he posts them Chris lane though is a diehard Carolina Panthers fan. So when he walked in the room in Thomas Davis was there. I thought for a moment that he might pass out, and it was such an awesome reaction. Because when I go in there, I think okay, Chris lane superstar, you know, and to see him gig out over somebody like that. It was really fascinating. And it was I opening and the stories that these two shared you have to hear from the fact that they both have they have five ACL surgeries between them which I think is insane. Also, the fact that sports was really at the start of both of their careers before Chris lane took a pivot to music, so many fun things to talk about. So. Many times that we were laughing until we could barely breathe. But also, you know, I appreciate them both getting very candid Chris lane talking about, you know, some of the things that he has realized his career in music and Thomas Davis talking about how this is the most potentially depressing turned motivating experience he's ever been in his an NFL player because for the first time he goes into free agency. He does not know where he will end up and he feels a little bit slighted by the Carolina Panthers. So I hope you enjoy this honesty and the fun conversation. We had as much as I did I'm beginning this one with Chris lane describing how these two met one another in the first place. I hope you enjoy. We I actually met randomly. I was in Greenville South Carolina playing in a golf tournament like the BMW. I think is what it was. And I think we'd been talking back and forth to flow through Instagram a little bit, and he had a golf tournament for his charity that he was doing on that Sunday. And I randomly was available..

"When you think about what it has taken like how you said you've learned a lot about yourself in that to to be able to be in the space where you are right now and compare that to athletes because I was thinking about this the other day, I was thinking how much must there be in common among the characteristics that that you have right? I know like, what do you what do you think that things preparation and the amount of work that goes into get into a certain level like those athletes that they're working everyday working out at four AM getting up and watching tape after dinner dirt like the amount of preparation that goes into what makes them elite. What makes them at that level? It's just it's different. There's how many kids want to go to the NFL now many kids want to do. This select few that are working hard like that good up there. So for music. I mean, you go down Broadway on Nashville any night. There's some incredib-. Blackstone there. You're gonna hear good music anywhere. But it's it's one of those select few that are really doing that tiny extra thing that kind of gets them that one leg up, you know. So what your preparation, then do you? What do you give a set routine that you kind of a little bit up think for anything just writing songs really diving into not turn it off? So for us from me, it's like conversations at dinner conversations, family, friends and thinking ideas, you know, what what can we write about next next record anything like that? There's other guys out there that want want it bad. So you got to want it just as bad work your butt off. Because if you don't somebody else will. It's interesting that you when you pull all your from your personal experiences. And I know like, obviously, that's what song writers do. But when you see your videos, they're all your personal experiences. Literally like the home video in five more minutes. Yeah. Do you envision that? That's like do you is that just something that you love to do or. Share, you know, telling stories feel like at the root of what I do. It's it's telling stories so that's country music's all about I like, my videos to kind of compliment that and to see the story on the song through a film, or whatever, you know. So anything to help tell the story is something I really like. I love it. When you said you went through a really tough time. What was that? Man, two thousand sixteen was not not my favorite. You have lived. We I thought we'd been doing good. We had a couple of albums come out and went to number one on the charts. And singles that did. Well, we were out in Los Angeles film when idle we're doing like a mentor accession. Okay. The news that night. It's like you're getting dropped by your label. And I was like holy cow. That's not how I thought we'd start the year. But you know, he just kind of got a bit yourself up by the bootstraps and keep rocking and rolling. And so we did it took about a year of work and attorneys and all that mess. I don't wanna have to turn is at twenty years. Yeah. You do then we got out of it. And I'm having more fun now than I've ever had music Oregon now, and we're on the road and shows or selling out again. So sometimes life sucks, but you just got to keep rolling. But that's hard stuff. I mean when you get that kind of news, right? What what was the toughest part of that? You know, it was probably just. Inside just wanting to have a little hope, you know, you couldn't see the light of the end of the time. You're like man when are we ever going to get out of this? You know, just nothing we were doing seemed to be working. So that was probably the toughest part was just mentally inside..

"Like, I remember driving through the parking lot at school until my guys. Like, there's us boy, she's just looked incredible. And. So but it all worked out between us you met her in kindergarten longtime kindergarten class. This starts kindergarten next year. So I'm gonna be hiding. Yeah. She you might meet his wife there. What is it? What's your first memory, though of seeing her is that is it there? It would have been we all buddies like we just grew up together and her kindergarten diary, she had a code name for my name was coke. And like the Buddy's name was like Pepsi or something like it was something like that. And her kindergarten. Dia MRs Gooby, McCreary written and hearts all over it. So it's it's one of those things I think I have so many questions like why they call you coke. Why? She goes they didn't like they talk about me. Apparently when I was like right there, but they just call coke. So I would know they were talking about me just elementary school. Kind of how crazy is that? And then to think years say you gotta homecoming you worked up the nerve. Yeah. Well, she didn't want homecoming Queen. I couldn't believe it. So I got a text. Now. I don't think that's right. And then it kind of went from there during the music video for the trouble with girls, we shot that like the very next week, and I was onto made everything better, right? All those shoes. Still like what is going on here? Like, she wasn't all about it. But it a visually convinced her to keep going on dates with me and. That must have been so crazy going through that. And then doing like videos all that stuff. And you're still that's pretty impressive. We did all that video shot on the high school campus. Like just like what is happening, but it was fun. I really those were besides two thousand eighteen probably say that was the best year my life. It was just so much fun and bring in that part of it full circle two thousand eighteen do you say that because you just got married just got married like so much change has happened in my life into team. But offer the better get married to my best friend starting to home together. And this having around the road. Some we're getting the dog in December like so many coupons. I'm a little nervous about the dog. But I'm sure it'll be great. I don't have any pets. I can't help you there. Oh, I have kids nurse and I'm on the road. So it's just like the dog going to do away. But we've got friends that are right there. But also like musically got my first number one this year. And now the song climates like things are starting to click a little bit just overall in life. And it's a lot of fun. How much different is where you are. Now from where you were back there right after you were winning idol kind of know who I am as a guy and as an artist, but just not I want to say, no, how wanna live not wanna do give things wanna do everything. So back then it was like drinking water firehose. I got what was happening. I was just like oh my gosh. And now it's just like life slow down a little bit. And just kind of take it as it comes and enjoy it. He just went back to the the Opry right play. What how is that to be back? There was no place like the grand ole Opry. Like that to me is a country music fan history. And it's like the one place still really get nervous for going stayed like butterflies galore, like just something different about it. It really is. What do you do when that happens just kind of pump myself up? All right, man. Just just go get it. And as soon as you get out there and start saying, it's good. But it's just that the thirty seconds to sixty seconds before you're like man, this grant will offer. I mean, don't you have a pre game ritual or something to get you in your head space or a little bit. I used to listen to rocky like are you serious are used to like.

"So it's been a little bit different. Except for the watch. I mean that was when I still think about that moment, I could probably cry. I still get goosebumps. There's nothing luggage live hockey to think is probably the most funds for was fast. And especially if it's overtime on three or Three the. or the shoot out to me. It's like football. I love it. But like if you break down twelve minutes of action hockey, it's six minutes, straight and just each other flying boards. And it's pretty fun saying you get into it as a kid, then your dad gets you hooked in you're playing what was your sport of choice baseball school. And I was a pitcher since he was a pitcher. And he just kinda got me into it. And I was definitely as grew up. More of a Greg Maddux style pitcher, then a pan just invert Lander type if you may I did not have any pop in my fastball, but I hit my spots and my senior year. I mean idle for me was my junior year. And I came back from a senior high school played again senior you think ahead like fifty one strikeouts to four walks like pretty ratio. All right. But yeah, I talked to the local college coaching coach he said he had a D one slide but a d four fastball. So it's just one of those things pretty funny. Wait a minute. But okay. So you go back. You just mentioned this. What was that? Like for you going back senior year after doing that all it was different. It was fun right off the bat. Like the public school system made me like walk to class with two armed guards like to every class. And none of my friends talk to me. Everybody likes like I was trying to be normal again. Like, I was just trying to boot my friends and hang out, and they just it was not good to finally after two weeks looked at the cops. I said why don't you guys watch me from like two hundred yards away? And then my friends started talking and uniform or were they okay? So it wasn't even like nobody can get close. This isn't snow came back home. But it eventually worked out pretty good. Yeah. I would say so what happened next? So after that senior year, then described when like for, you know, for me like I said earlier like friends and family so important to me and just getting those experiences of being your normal eighteen year old for me was important. So what I did after senior year. We went onto a Brad paisley. I guess that was kind of during that. So it was Monday Tuesday Wednesday owes in school and Thursday Friday Saturday, I was on the road. It was it was interesting dynamic there. It's pretty wild feeling to go from playing in front at twenty thousand people to typing paper thirty minutes later, that's due in like an hour. And you're like, oh, my gosh like paper, but I really have to do this. I know for me. I don't know. It was weird inside. I wanted to wanted to do it. So how did you do that? I mean, how did you compartmentalize all that? And I mean. Are drastically different things. It definitely was. I really don't know didn't consciously think. Okay. This is this. And this is that it's just I just did it a really just went to school. And I don't think of myself any different. I feel like any artist or anybody. That's in the public light just to your you know, and other folks like oh saw you last night on TV. Yeah. Cool. You're like why are you in class? Just back hanging out like everybody else. China get. Yeah. To armed guards. Yeah. That was that was something else. That was not good. What was the toughest part of that whole time for me going back to school was probably just convincing my friends like the same, dude. Even my my wife now, you know, when I came back, she wouldn't even really talk to me 'cause like it was just different. No, no. I was just like home. Although we were just kind of friends at that point. And nothing crazy. But it was homecoming week that year that finally worked up the nerve to ask her out on the date. And she was like, really. Yeah. So what are you dating at that point at all during idle for? I'd always had my honor..

"Hey there, I'm Lindsay Arnie. And this is players conversations with country artists about their interest in sports. This week's guest is the awesome. Scotty mccreery if you know his name, it's probably because he won American idol back in two thousand eleven but he has had a ton of success since some fun things about Scotty that I learned in our conversation. He adores Tom Brady not a shock because most of the planet. Does he loves scary movies and he met his wife and kindergarten? I think that's amazing and the stories that he shares a round those topics are pretty cool. But the one thing that I took from this that I was floored by was the amount of challenge. I would say that he's gone through in his career things were great. And then he hit a massive roadblock. But what he left me with was understanding that him choosing to believe in himself and take one action in selling something. He believed in turned into his biggest hit so far. Scotty, mccreery tremendous guy still lives in North Carolina. But we can miss him to come to Nashville to talk to me, not just talk to me. It was the week. So he had a lot you know, that was signed up. To do. But he fit me in and we had a great long conversation. And I think he might wanna come back and talk about scary movies at some point. So we'll definitely do that. But I really hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did because I learned a heck of a lot from this guy. And and I think he's really cool. So Sammy week here in Nashville. I mean, what is this like for you in your life, which I imagine it's pretty crazy. Anyway. This week is a little crazy. But in a good way. I mean, everybody's in town and words here with you wards Gamal artist and just a bunch of friends coming together and hanging out, and it's fun. My wife comes in the town. She's department. She's you go do your thing. I'll I'll be here hanging out. But I love this week. It's a lot that love this week. What's the best part about it? Probably after parties. The show itself is words, and but I think it's after party when it really gets fun, and everybody's just cracking up and hanging out you don't get to do that too much. Everybody's so focused, but it's a quick follow artists and stuff for people that don't have the opportunity to do that kind of thing. Take me inside. What is that actually like one of those after parties as an artist I'm still a fan of a lot of these people? So I would just hanging out with my crew and everybody and then Blake or the urban or whoever on George strait's walking around. Sometimes he does little thing. But everybody's just their own person, and relaxed and laid back and no stage personas or anything just being man. It's just fun. Is there any person in particular that you get star struck around George will be that guy Garth, really? But no the coolest thing is after meeting them like I that George strait. He came up to me was hey Scotty. I was like what? But just like how you doing good? Good people. That's what you find a lot in country music. Everybody's just nice. Wow. And you still live in North Carolina do. Yeah. Bone and raise their home. It's home for me. So why? So why why don't you move here? You are here, and we're here. But I don't know. I think for me the way I got started. I started the seventeen years old on idol. And it was just a win their Los Angeles for like four or five months. I was just it was a way from family away from friends, and to me that's such a valued part of my life, as my friends that have grown up with since I was five and my family and having them close and getting married and having everybody kinda gather just think it's important. Eventually I could see ourselves settling down here and call Nashville home..

"Well, it was seven years. Osama record deal in two thousand one while I left Clemson. I didn't have a record out until I didn't hit. My I didn't come on radio into two thousand seven the record. Didn't even come out that same record that that song was on because they were gonna wait till the song got to the top top ten to put a record out. So I'll put out three or four or five singles that only got the top thirty. So they still wouldn't put the record out. So I didn't have a record until two thousand ten three years later after I waited seven years to get a single out. So you're talking I've been there ten I mean, it was just a it was a long time and law a lot of grind. And I see a lot of the other folks that cana- town when I did. And they're just below invite me because you know, there's some dif- different labels work different ways. I was at a smaller label, and they were having issues and with an within their own things and problems with other artists that that just really took away from what I was trying to do. And so it put a damper on, you know, a real hindrance. On my singles, and what I was getting done. But we finally had love like crazy was like, you know, most played song of the year, you know, on two thousand ten and so they put the record out. Finally, what was that moment for you where you were like that was pretty cool. You know, I got my first record out. But then I realized okay. So with a record release here comes going to New York for a week and doing press and data da and like all the other stuff that comes along with that. And more and more and more interviews and more and more people in meet and greet, some more than people that wanna see you. So then that started that process of learning. And so now, it's like, okay. At this point. I've got three kids, and I've got I gotta go. Okay. Well, I can't do that show because. I this is a holiday that I've had blocked to be with family, or if I'm at a show like Lee, you're gonna be going all day. We're going to do we're going to get media all day long. And then we're going to do it dinner, and we're going to have a show. So it's and then you got to one hundred twenty five people meet and greet, you know, before the show. You know? So it gets it's get it gets grueling even now it's like, so what did you how'd you balance that once you do? Well, so that's kinda why because I was then coming home and making records and stuff I was home. So I'm like well now, I'm never seen the family because when I am home, I'm working. So that's one I build a studio on the bus a couple of years ago. So that I can get out on the road and just grinded out their brand come in fact today, I'm leaving today. We just redid the studio got a new bus. I was moving buses two days ago. Got a new bus. I've been in this one bus for like seven years. It's like rattling down the road. Now, we put like five hundred thousand miles on it. So I'm I'm moving buses today. It'll be our first run, and I've got to riders coming out. We'll get out there tonight. We're right all after all night on the bus on the bus because I've got gear and guitars. And I mean, the pro tools everything you would have in any other studios right there on my bus Mike's and all the stuff, and it's a creative space, and it's a coup in this newer buses, kind of creative us all I born would out, and so it's kind of kind of vibe like this room. You know, what I mean, except it's not painted white. But anyway, which is a great dissenting. But so what do that and we'll work hard. And we'll I'll come back, and I will be because..

Luckily, my band, and I had I kind of sort of started out with other than my bass player because I've I've found him a couple of years in. He was in the van with us for the last couple of years, but the first couple of years that was the only part we didn't have nail down.

But, but yeah, those those early days were arguing that mental toughness of being because you either you're on like that, and you can push through or you can't you know, and some people are cut out for there's a lot of people who got a record deal and went out on the road and realized they're like, I want to be a singer. So they go get a record deal, and then they have on the road, and they realized the work that is involved in. I mean, the singing parts easy part. That's that's that's the seventy minutes night. You know a day. It's the all the other stuff, that's like, the hard part, and all the preparation all our work. Do you ever?

"Hey there I'm Lindsay Arctic and this is players conversations with country artists about their interest. In sports. This week's guest is Lee Bryce, he is a superstar by far one of the most talented singer songwriters in Nashville. He's a CNA award winner also Grammy nominee, but why I love this conversation so much was we got to peel the layers of this onion, and this guy is so interesting his song rumor is out there on radio right now getting a lot of play. But he invited me to his cottage to his farm, which is just outside of Nashville. So I want to paint you a little seen here because we pull up outside the gate, and it's this gorgeous land, beautiful little farmhouse. But you know, the gravel you can hear it as you're pulling up the driveway. We couldn't find Lee, right? So we pull up, and I was like where is this guy? I am not even making this up. He pulls around the corner. You know, gravel dust flying through the tires of his souped up. Atv? He's on his ATV. He gets up. I swear to God. He's got this may. Jar in his hand filled with ice water. And he says all so sorry, I'm late. I was I was out shooting buzzards at his pond because he's got a pond on his farm land. And the buzzards were getting the fish so Lee, you know, being a hard work and awesome country guy that he is a takes care of himself. And I knew from that incident, you know, not only because I'm really intrigued about talking about his sports connections. But also because this is definitely a person that I can tell I wanna spend a lotta time with because there's so much to learn he was awesome in so welcoming right from the start. He actually had the opportunity to pursue an NFL future. He he was a walk on at Clemson. And he made it as a starter. And that was something that a lot of people told him he couldn't do. So his story is definitely one a perseverance. But man, it's it's also one of family and challenges along the way, I found his stories about making it a Nashville just as interesting as his stories about making it on the football field at Clemson. He also is just insanely. Really funny and his stories about digging ditches with his daddy. And how he would his wife were highlights for me in this conversation. So if you love his music, you're gonna love this. If you're not even that sure about what he's about. I think you're gonna love him even more. Here's my conversation with Lee, Bryce. So you're you're cottage out here. Amazing. What goes on out here? What are you will? So, you know, this is where eventually we want to build a house out here kind of on this hill behind us. So for now, we'll come out in Raza fan will stay out here for the weekend, or you know, for the night, or, you know, or if we have guest, and my parents, or whatever they come stay out here. But right now, probably the most use it's getting is right out here. Good bit. So like this room. We're sitting in is kind of the dining room, but I'll take this table and move it over and put speakers on it and get my engineering and all set up some Andersen guitars, and we just right? I'll ride all day record a track right down here before I leave this room will have something that sounds kind of like a record done. You know what I mean that night and one day? Yeah. I mean from start to finish. And so we'll continue to work on it. You know and make it, you know, but, but it's pretty cool. You can get done if you really just kind of start and like go for it all stop, you know. You know? I mean, really dive into it headfirst and just don't stop until you get to a point of. Okay. We got this thing kind of in the basket. So what does that look like for you is it like, you're you know, you come and you get all your stuff set or have my my coffee there. Yeah. I kind of do. So I've got a I've got this. Awesome. Young. Not he's really not young kid. He's twenty five, but he's a puppy. But he, but he fulltime on as like my engineers so file ever from writing a song..

"They require a lot of attention. How how do you this kind of goes back to the fantasy football question too? What is your life? Like when you're not on stage. Or you're not writing songs. I mean, do you have time don't do. Yeah. Like, you know, we're here as soon as I'm done with you go into another interview and photo shoot. And then yesterday, I went to breakfast meeting and then got done with that. And you know, what back walk the dog fed him put him back up left. The house wrote a song came back walk the dog again. So you know, it it's it's good. I can't complain. I love my job. And I I really don't mind anything that I have to do for it. 'cause it's a really cool job. I've dug postals before that was a lot less fun. I am. I love when athletes specifically NFL players talk about the moment for them going out on the field. Right. Like before a game and win. What that feels like in the adrenaline and the excitement and having to calm yourself down to right? That's a huge part of it that I think people don't know, especially if it's like Monday night football, right or Sunday night big show. You know, right. You opened a stadium. You know, like I played play Wrigley. One time. What's that like for an artist? It's really cool in very very rarely get nervous. But every now, and then when you do something that you haven't done the first time I played LT field during fest. You're like trying to yourself and calm yourself down at the same time. Yes. Because you don't wanna be like, you know, some some said there's there's a pet nozzle joke. Comedian and he talks about actual rose run out on stage at the rock and Roll Hall of fame induction. He got way too over hyped, and he was out of breath by the first course, I was like you never wanna do that as an artist at. It's so easy to get kinda lost in that. And you know, but you also don't want to come out flat either. So it's that weird thing. And I know that's in that has to have an sports what you're talking about going out for like a big game. That does are also you make me think about UFC. Mike biz bang is a guy that I've worked with and he he's a UFC champion, and he talked about how he used to do it where he would go out. And he thought the key west get yourself is aunt up as possible. Right. But then he realized really fast it absolutely drained you right? And there's the way that you have to be as an athlete is to what you said, you just get yourself to that level. Infield. Like, I believe the most boring phrase in sports is not too high not too low. But if you listen to every single quarterback press conference, I guarantee they will say the time. But it's true. Right. And so, yeah, I think that's interesting. If you deal with the same kind of thing, and I could see that I could see bisbee saying that because I I I'm a huge fan too. So it's like it back in the day like jen's pover- like little evil like way way back in the day. So it's a like randomly the other day. We're in the middle of Iowa and jen's was there and text me today can bring the family back yet. What are you doing here? I don't know Tim Sylvia's out here to walking around. I was like what is happening. Yeah. I mean, that's gotta be. That's gotta be one of those things. It's just really really tough in all sports in anything in music is you don't wanna come out and just wear yourself out by song too. But you also want people to feel energy when you come on stage. What is the moment? You would say for you that might be equal to like making a game winning catch. What is it like where what is the moment that you love the most when you're onstage? So this this didn't happen in my career up until the past couple years. But when we're playing arena. About four or five songs in. And I can stop and just look at the crowd and people start screaming for no reason. And it's also..

"All of them, Washington fans. Yeah. Okay. We're a big network loving network to do this. Then you're letting the cloud. I think it off. She's acknowledged he's out. No, you know, I respect I do respect at an when I think back to just memories even in the old days in our K that that stadium would just bounce that floor wood shake right specifically because they in Washington. It was a whole thing where it would be Dallas week, you know, and nothing else happened people barely worked right because everyone was getting so ready for that rivalry game on Sunday. So I wish it was still that way. I think maybe at some point it can get to that a little bit. But there's gotta be some winning. So we'll see we'll see what happens. I mean. Even just knowing how little things will stick in people's heads just walking around going you like that at me because. Yeah, if you don't know why. Then obviously, never followed the the rivalry at all. But you know, it was it's funny. People get real serious. It's awesome. You're you're also serious about your pet. I am my boy here and said that he was having a little separation anxiety is that right porter the dog he he is on Instagram. Yes. My dog has an Instagram and the first thing that people say is oh my God really in and they look at it. And they realize he has fifty three thousand followers up never mind. Okay. Understood. But he's German shepherd, and he is way too smart for zone. Good. He was getting out of his kennel. So I had to put him in this the kennel that looks like he's imprisoned. I can task picture. He loves it. Thank god. But he looks like he's in prison. How how's his demeanor is he oh, he's if he was here now he'd be laying in the floor. He's super chill and a Christmas present for my little sister. Oh, that's a good story. So my mom was terrified because she knew it was gonna go to as I was going gonna be really happy that had a dog or I was going to be really ticked off that somebody bought me a dog and. My sister new I've always wanted to German shepherds and found a German shepherd, and that's what I got for Christmas reaction when you open it. Oh, all right. Hi, did you guess you didn't open box, right. Loss or anything you can poke holes in the side. No appeal. Yeah. Yeah. Had it. She cheviot. She got the dog tag made and open that. And then with the name if it was a photo. Yeah. Says she named it. Yeah. I love it. She actually went to my friends and had one of my friends go. What would you name him house like probably name importer? And so that's did like super super detective work. She she one Christmas. So at at my mom was not having my mom gave me something really, really. And then my sister came over the top of the dog is like Trump card. So it was it's been awesome. He's he super Cole. He loves being on the road loves the bus. They. Yeah. He he did not like being in the kennel on the bus. He hated that. He was getting out. He get out in about twenty seconds. That's a super intelligent animal, and that's going to be fun to see what he continues to chew through. Oh god. I hope not. He did eat. He ate the first time. He got out at the house and got loose. It scared me to death because I came back at like two in the morning. I just walked him about three hours before. And I was out with some friends got home, and you know, the lights are off. And I opened the door this animal when I'm like, oh, what what no, oh, you're in trouble like terrified, angry really fast, and I walked in the house, and there's just, you know, boxes torn up, and I posted a photo and all of the Philly in Washington and New York fans on my Instagram noticed that he ate a Cowboys being they're like, well, guess allegiance does not Dallas. He sending a message. He was up. No. They hadn't won anything since I've been alive as your eight months old down. That is funny. How you know how they do that to get attention from their owners..

"I actually ran from a meeting that I was having with the head of my label. I got up and left like at the last possible second guess, he gets which straight to the house, and like grabbed a box full of all the draft board and everything ran up the street to where we were meeting. Got everything put up, but I've got a lot of really cool friends in that group of people, and they are all very competitive in. It's just a lot of fun and I'm in a couple of other leagues. But those are just kind of casual ones it's like in it just to have that on my phone and be able to look at it. But the one that I'm a Commissioner of is the big and that's the penalty league to if you lose our league, something bad happens. Like what that's. This year this year, we said, no, no, no, this is this is much worse. This year we had decided that whoever lost had to wear robber. And so a girl one this year. Awesome lost. Okay. We're like it needs to have the winners face on it. And so a mandate amino who's the one of our league, huge huge Pittsburgh Steelers fan. And so, you know, she had the shirt made up and she's wearing a crown. She fed, you know, whole number one and we've printed off and. The loser. This girl named Shelby. And she thought that was going to be it. She was just gotta wear Robbins gonna have Amandus face on and. That was not the case. I kind of went to my Taylor. This custom. He said what is it for I told him, and he goes, oh my God. Absolutely. So he found she's a bears fan. And so she did not see it until draft night. Which is when she had to wear it. And it was said the following a Green Bay jersey. Oh, my gosh that he hid cut. He found some fabric that he had made like a Grinch Halloween costume four. So he made the short set of that. So it looked like turf. And then it kind of it was all connected is our offer he made it, and it was so awesome. I could not have been like the look on her face that was that was going to ask what was her reaction and her boyfriend was there, and he he's also I think he was more mad about it than I she was your bears fan. There's nothing you hate more than Green Bay, right? There was awesome. Awesome. I don't know what the penalty is for next year. We've talked about changing it. But obviously if if we're not afraid to do that. I really don't wanna leave. How do you pay attention to what's happening during games? Like if you've got a show or if there's something that you've got to get done. What is your method of keeping up and how dedicated are you to that? If it's a Cowboys game. I I will have our monitor guide like give us updates throughout the show. I won't. I haven't gone as far, I know. Darius Rucker who is a huge fan huge South Carolina fan. He actually had like when they were in the final four, whatever he had a show at the time one of the games. And so he like put it. Head new onstage out of going that far then they get away with it easier. They might throw things at me. But I do I will go pretty far to get updates and other than that. We're finding TV I'll pull the bus over if we're travelling home. I'm like, Nope. No pullover. And now we need to watch this game. Dale Earnhardt, jR, told me once that he he would get updates in his ear his crew chief for Redskins games because his team to but they all knew to care for your friends with.

"Your shows. Where would you say you are right now in your career describing how you described where? Okay. You know, since the word that people hate to hear in in sports ever describing players elite is then there's the huge argument about who that is. Tear quarterback or you. That's a great. Yes. Is great. I'm probably if I'm being completely bluntly, honest, you know. No, I can sell out of tickets and had a lot of hits. But still like almost there at say like top of tier two so not I'm not the elite like the top five QB. I'm trying to get there. That's really interesting. So who who did you consider on the top two of quarterbacks top-to-toe top top to? Jason L dean agai parentally every year just about he's either in the conversation or he wins entertainer. I mean that to me is like this is the time. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. That's we're working on getting their top. And then top tier of quarterbacks would obviously be Tom Brady it Lowy Aaron Rodgers. Yeah. I think the second tier of quarterbacks is always where it's a little interesting 'cause toggle ING and there's such a range there too. You know, if you go from the top to the bottom. I think you find that in everything, but that quarterback conversations always fun to have people because they're like the Homer ISM comes out strong. There's like somebody in the room from Boston. They're like, well, let me tell you about Tom Brady. And it's like, no, he's he's really good. And he is very very smart. And he is also, you know, at some point. The end looms. Right. But I mean, it's hard to believe that that's ever really going to happen with him. I know he's a few. But it it'll happen. I was undefeated. So you find a way to be the Commissioner of your football league fantasy football league. Despite all you have going on. How do you do that? How do you find time?.

"Dreamed of playing in the Braves stadium, and there I am playing music in it. And that's something as a kid outta never dreamed of that. So it's it's funny how things work out. But I think, you know, you're you end up where you're supposed to be. And you you find what you love. And for me, you know, music took over that. You know, I love music like I did sports as a kid. I still have sports, but nothing makes me feel like like music passed so. Wow. And it is interesting. When you talk about how similar they are. And it's like, you don't really realize that until you say it out loud. What what was that? Moment like for you. When you describe playing Turner field and thinking about that and thinking about your dad and for I know your fans. No storyline for those. That don't you know, your dad and thirteen is that right? Yeah. Is is just it was Labor Day two thousand thirteen that was just a, you know on the craziest times in my life. I'd just gotten my record deal. You know, he he knew that dream have been, you know, chases stream, and he was so happy, and that you know, you gotta look at the positive and it's been five years now. And you know, I've met people that you ought to hear the stories I've heard just from other people. So I know that if he had known that going lower early and me me writing a song that would help so many he would have been would have been cool that but going back to you know, play in Turner field. That's just one of those moments that I know everybody has and it doesn't matter if you're in business or what you're doing. We all have those moments where you wish somebody could be there with you and the ones. That you know, kinda got you there the that would appreciate it. So you know for me to play that play that song there. It was just a one of those bittersweet moment. I wish he was there. But there's a lot of people out there that are going through the same thing. And I think, you know, getting to do what I do I get to put myself out there, and let them know that. Hi, I'm just like to have fun up here. But also, you know been through stuff as well. And I get to share that through my music, that's kind of how let people know that I have been through some of the same stuff. So Turner fields one of the probably my favorite venues I'll ever play just because of the history and what the emotional. You know, attachments. I have to to watching the Braves and getting into play music there. So I I think it was a quote in a magazine that you had said something about you came here to Nashville, right? That song is that is something that I realize I didn't know that obviously. When I moved wish I always say, I was showed never had to write it. But I don't know if I feel like that anymore. I'm glad. I think going by defining the positive in things. I mean, Josh I don't have a show now where I don't meet somebody every single night that doesn't tell me there. You should be your story, or you know, we've got a new one on the on the new I'm called dad's number that specialist. Just kind of those songs that those are the kind of songs that help people. And you know, that's what I wanna do. I've been a fan. I think that's a blessing to me is to grow up as a fan of sports and music because now I'm on the other side of that in a way that music especially in. I know what it done if somebody would have stopped and taking a picture, you know, tweet if we'd had Twitter tweeted me back. You know, somebody on there. It's just little things like that. I think being a fan it made me appreciate now is if I could ever do that I'm going to do that. And that's to me. That's a big part of is. You know, if I if somebody had made me feel that way about playing sports if grown up del Murphy fan or Randy Travis those were the two people as a kid that I thought hung the moon. So wow. Yeah. It's going back. You know, baseball, sports and music is just huge huge part of Mullah. You know?.

"How are you introduced to them in general? Was it a family thing? Some of my favorite members were watching baseball with my dad. I love always loved football growing up going to Georgia Southern games. But baseball that was that's what I played from the time. I could walk in swing was baseball. But played so much that I kind of got burnt out didn't play my middle school years then came back played in high school. But as a kid, I mean, especially, you know, back in the nineties, the Braves were unbelievable people over this country now that so. Yeah. Growing up that was the only team around where that we could watch just because they were on TV s or whatever. And that's to me. I mean, that's cool. But me live in Georgia didn't really realize that they were on every night. No matter what. And we were used breads fans and a lot of my favorite memories of my dad are, you know, get into watch those years where you know, we were so good the. Raves were unbelievable. And just those kind of memories. I mean, that's what makes them special because you know, we've hadn't been that. Good sense. But it's. This year's been amazing. So it's just going back to sports I loved it. All I really did basketball's a big basketball fan football. But I I guess I'd have to pick baseball as a kid. You know, now, I love it all about the same. Did you remember yourself getting nervous ever playing baseball? Like you mentioned before that first show. Good. Yeah. In high school. I mean, I remember. Yeah. Just being on deck knowing that. Hey, you don't wanna bit? You're going to be the last out or you're going to be what you don't wanna be that guy that strikes that last whatever just that kind of feeling or or even before the game just that, you know, wanting to do I remember, I think, you know, when you're nervous, I think that just means you care, and you won't to perform the best you can whether that's on stage on the field. And you know, just now have met some athletes that, you know, I'm huge fan of to know that you know, our stores are somewhat similar how we got there. Just I don't know. I I love I mean, I think sports, you know, now if you to tell me as a kid that there's going to be a baseball player walk in up to one of my songs, you know, her welcome. I mean, that's. Yes. Just not even you don't even think they're going to ever cross paths. But you know, I have dreamed of being in the major leagues as a kid and closes out ever get I got to play. I got to play Turner field before one of the last years. It was just, you know, one of the coolest after you know, after the game I got to play the show, and it was one of those you should be here moments. My dad, I know he was smiling down that was something that, you know. I'll never forget. And that's that's what I'm saying you always.
