I’m often asked what I look for when I interview talented recording artists. And while I am a vocal recording artist, I don’t pretend to be a songwriter or singer. But I’ll tell you a secret. While I do these interviews with remarkably talented people, I am always looking for common ground. When I interviewed Gary Pratt, he had just released a remarkable new album “Something Worth Remembering”. Knowing the folks at his record label (MTS), I’m certain there are people all over the country wanting to interview him. And between record producers and studio talent, ones nerves can get a little frayed, and while all this was his reality, he stopped his world as if we had the luxury of being old friends.
It’s easy to find common ground when he openly talks about his family ties and when he seems genuinely appreciative of the people around him who are working to help his career. His music production is spot on and fun to listen to. And he told me it is always important to relate to the crowd as if he enjoyed seeing their faces and wanted them to have as much fun as he was performing.
Episode 67 of our Free Range Texan Podcast brings a slice of Gary Pratt’s life, career and music … and a guy like Gary is exactly what enables us to have good music and worthwhile content that we can introduce our listeners to. He is our new friend here on the Free Range Texan, and we suggest that you enjoy our visit with this singer, songwriter, recording artist, and entertainer that will be worth your time. Honestly, I’ve got a grin on my face just thinking about the time spent making a new friend. Enjoy!
