“Can you take me back when we were just kids Who weren't scared of getting older? 'Cause no one knows you like they know you And no one probably ever will You can grow up, make new ones But truth is there's nothing like old friends 'Cause you can't make old friends” -"Old Friends" by Ben Rector
Nashville-based singer-songwriter Ben Rector writes from a place of vulnerability, forming a bond with his fans by letting them behind the curtain. And while he and host Tom Coyne have just recently met, they sound very much like old friends on this episode. During their conversation, Rector discusses the best place to peg it while on tour, golf in the Nashville music scene and adds his expert opinion on one of golf’s hot-button issues: music on the golf course.
Rector also tells stories about playing 200+ shows in college, talking to his mother on air after a Today Show performance, a near gaffe at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and much more.
