Rod Picott has long been one of the great songwriters of his generation. His bonafides are well established, but his new record cements him as something different. It is the best of an impressive catalog and there are a few clear reasons for that. Rod and I talk about the new album Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil, his excellent book of short stories, and the creative process in general. Rod Picott is a class act and an incredible writer. Give this conversation a listen, then head over to rodpicott.com and get his new record.

The song used in this episode is “A Beautiful Light” from Tell the Truth and Shame the Devil which will be released on July 19, 2019.
