This week Tom talks with talented artist, songwriter, and producer, Ira Dean. Tom rarely interviews artists because of the political correctness constraints that prevent honest and compelling conversations. Not so with Ira Dean! He speaks honestly about his days in the successful band, Trick Pony along with their breakup. He gives a brutally honest take on the state of country music today and the use of auto tune in Nashville studios. He also shares some personal thoughts on his hero and mentor Johnny Cash. Tom closes the show with a Trick Pony cover of one of Johnny Cash's greatest songs that has Johnny and Waylon Jennings helping out on the vocals. Don't miss it! Enjoy, subscribe....and share!
