Tim Elliott Talks Music Row, The Wildhorse Saloon & The Best Places To Eat In Nashville

Current Carolina’s Male Country Artist of the Year, Tim Elliott, has had a big year. We talk with him about what it’s like being on the same charts with your idols, having a record deal and we even get into the best places to eat in Nashville. Before starting the actual interview, I learned that Tim Elliott used to live in Carroll County, Virginia, where I am originally from. He also used to live near Boone and I went to Appalachian State University. He now resides in Mount Airy just like me.

Suzy Bogguss Talks Merle Haggard, Roy Rogers & Reimagining "Aces"

With hits like, “Letting Go,” “Outbound Plane,” “Drive South” and “Aces,” Suzy Bogguss has won numerous awards including the Top New Female Vocalist {1989} from the Academy of Country Music and a GRAMMY in 2005 for Traditional Folk Album. She has had 8 Top 5 Singles on the Country Charts and I will always love her version of “Take It To The Limit” on the album Common Thread: Songs of the Eagles, one of my favorite albums of all time and the CMA Album of the Year in 1994. My personal favorite song of hers is “Just Like The Weather,” and I am really looking forward to seeing her live this Thursday night at the Grey Eagle in Asheville, NC, where she will be performing her hits as well as some Christmas favorites. I recently got to interview her and, I must say, she was just so friendly and bubbly that speaking with her was much like talking to an old friend.
