Coda Country ChatsSep 08, 2023
Chat with Wyatt Putman
On this episode of "Coda Country Chats", Leigh chats with Wyatt Putman, a good ol' boy from Arkansas about his single release of "Spinnin' Around All Night". They also talk about his music influences, his new album releasing in March 2024, "My Kinda Country", and about what Wyatt's kind of country was like growing up as a country boy. Pre-save his new single, "Cowgirl Thing" here: https://ffm.to/cowgirlthing Follow Wyatt Putman: www.wyattputman.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/wyattputmanmusic_/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WyattPutmanCountry/ YouTube: @wyattputmanmusic About Wyatt Putman: "Proudly from the Natural State of Arkansas, Wyatt was raised on the voices that established outlaw country music. Constantly looking back home for inspiration when it comes to writing music, Wyatt will deliver his collection of raw songs with grit, attitude, and authenticity on "My Kinda Country" — produced by the renowned GRAMMY-nominated producer, Kent Wells. As Wyatt likes to put it, he writes “music that takes you from the asphalt to the gravel.” "My Kinda Country" finds Wyatt exactly where he wants to be — making a statement with dirt road country anthems straight from the backwoods of Spring Hill, AR. As Wyatt notes: “Spring Hill has influenced me to be the best I can possibly be no matter what it is I’m doing. I’ve learned that if you’re going to do it, give it all you’ve got. The same goes for Friday nights with a band behind me and a guitar in my hand.” Looking back at his journey, Wyatt reflects on how the process of creating music has changed for him. When he recorded his six-track EP, "Outlaw Reputation" (2018), he relied heavily on his producer and the other musicians in the studio to bring his vision to life. However, with "My Kinda Country", Wyatt took full control of his artistry. This forthcoming project marks a significant milestone in Wyatt’s musical career, showcasing his growth as an artist and his evolution as a creator. With "My Kinda Country", Wyatt concludes “it’s not just music, it’s a way of life. Music made for the backwoods, blue-collar, dirt road kids that are proud to be from wherever they’re from! It’s also the beginning of a new chapter for me, and I invite everyone to jump on the train. I want this album to make people feel good when they listen to it, and I hope they can come back to this album 15 years from now and say ‘damn what a record’.”

Chat with A&W Brewer
What a delight it was to have Alyssa and Wayne (and their sweet baby girl) Brewer on the "Coda Country Chats" to promote their new tribute album to George Jones and Tammy Wynette. Leigh with Coda Country interviews the couple to learn more about their debut album. About A&W Brewer and "Alyssa and Wayne Sing George and Tammy": When youthful passion and timeless songs intersect, it’s a creative crossroads where everything old seems new again. That’s definitely the case with husband and wife country duo Alyssa & Wayne Brewer’s new album "Alyssa and Wayne Sing George and Tammy", due for release on Friday, September 15. Wayne Brewer, a sixth-generation musician well-known for his work with Gary Brewer & The Kentucky Ramblers, and his talented wife Alyssa teamed to salute country legends George Jones and Tammy Wynette. The Brewer’s debut album finds the couple covering such well known classics as the first single, “Golden Ring” and “We’re Gonna Hold On” in addition to lesser known gems like “Rosie Bokay.” Wayne and Alyssa approached the project with equal amounts of unbridled enthusiasm and humble trepidation. “We committed and agreed to do our debut release as a tribute to the two best country singers of all time. It was a major undertaking,” Wayne recalls. “We did all these in the original keys that George and Tammy cut them in, except I did ‘Rosie Bokay’ as a nod to Bobby Osborne, who cut it up a key high. All the rest of the songs are in the original keys, which I thought was important.” Married since 2015, Wayne says recording a duet album has been a goal since he and Alyssa began dating, but other career demands kept them busy. Wayne not only performs with the Ramblers, but is also CEO of SGM (Stretch Grass Music) and Alyssa serves as COO of the label. Eventually, the couple found time to get in the studio and recorded the Townes Van Zandt classic “If I Needed You,” a song they had sung to each other at their wedding. The combination of Wayne’s earnest approach and Alyssa’s achingly vulnerable vocals earned them instant fans. A friend at SGM’s distribution company, Sony/The Orchard, encouraged them to record an entire album and suggested they revive the Jones/Wynette catalog. Both Wayne and Alyssa had grown up listening to the country music icons and the project seemed a natural fit. “We’ve always been big fans of theirs, but who isn’t? Everybody knows George’s range was unlike anybody’s that ever has been or ever will be, so it was an undertaking,” Wayne says. Yet the couple rose to the challenge, even though they were recording at the same time they were adjusting to being first-time parents. “After we had a baby, we started working on it when she was a newborn, so we waited until we had the least amount of time to start this,” Alyssa laughs about the challenging circumstances. “This was only my second time ever in the studio, but I had a lot of guidance from Wayne because he’s been producing so many albums over the years.” Alyssa and Wayne Sing George and Tammy became a labor of love for the young couple and the recording sessions were intimate and emotional with Wayne alone in the control room and Alyssa singing directly to him. “I said, ‘I’ll sit on the board, and you’ll be in the tracking room, looking right at me through the glass. I’ll track all your vocals with you singing directly to me,’” he recalls. “So that’s how this was cut, and I feel like you can hear that in the album.” Follow Alyssa & Wayne Brewer https://awbrewer.com/ Instagram: https://instagram.com/alyssa_wayne_brewer_official?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA== YouTube: @alyssawaynebrewer
Chat with Goldpine
To celebrate the release of their new album "Two", Ben and Kassie Wilson of the Nashville-based Americana duo Goldpine meet Leigh on the latest episode of the "Coda Country Chats" podcast. Cassie and Ben talk about their musical partnership-turned-marriage, their latest single release, upcoming shows for the year. Follow Goldpine: https://goldpinemusic.com/home Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/goldpinemusic Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/goldpinemusic YouTube: @Goldpinemusic About Goldpine: Formerly known as My One and Only, the duo has reimagined their “southern-soul,” “curious-grit” and emotionally honest lyrics into Americana act, Goldpine. The duo released their self-produced debut LP, One, last year and they have been sharing those stories with audiences across the country, recounting their own experiences with life and love. After nearly a decade of honing in on their sound, and evolving their music, the name didn’t necessarily grow along with it. “We were called My One and Only for about 5 years,” the two explain. “Throughout those years we realized that the name was putting out a certain vibe, of the depth of the music, that was not quite accurate with where our style was heading.” Drawing inspiration from their roots, the name Goldpine signifies their past and their future; Kassie grew up on Pines Road in Alabama, so ‘pine’ represents the past and ‘gold’ is the lasting and valuable element that represents the future. Touring since 2016, they have been lessening the gap between music and the audience by disclosing their stories behind the lyrics at every venue along the way. From Kerrville Folk Fest main stage and 30A Songwriters Festival to listening rooms throughout the United States, Ben and Kassie have been offering their own brand of raw Americana to audiences large and small. Having been recent winners of the 2022 Rocky Mountain Songwriter Contest at the Red Lodge Songwriter Festival, Goldpine continues to stay true to their vision from the beginning and stands out while doing so. Presented the “Discovery Award” in 2018 by acclaimed music critic Robert K. Oermann (MusicRow Magazine), the duo's bold harmonies are clearly a channel for their highly charged songwriting. Goldpine is set to perform their debut AMERICANAFEST showcase this month on Friday, September 22nd amongst a year full of shows throughout the country.

Get to know Coda County - Back Porch Podcast
In this episode, you'll hear from Leigh, the creator of Coda Country and her life story that brought her to create this social media news outlet/influencer persona. After ten years of being a public school music teacher and a former country music performer in the Southeast US, Leigh is focusing back in on her country music roots as a hobby, but also as a driving factor for happiness after a year of tragedy. Her mother passed in 2022 after a long battle with Parkinson's Disease, so Leigh is really looking forward to sharing this new outlet of her love of country music in honor of her mother, because she know how proud her mother would be of her.
