Usually by the time a recording artist or anyone else makes a second appearance on the Free Range Texan, there is what feels like a friendship involved. We always try to treat our individual guests with all of the respect and polished showcasing that we can give. In short, we appreciate their time and effort.
Jordan Robert Kirk makes all this easy. When I interviewed him the first time on Epsiode 23 , I came away with the feeling that I was impressed with what a respectful, young gentleman he seemed to be. Not to mention that I really like the way he sings! I was glad he brought his personality and music to our podcast.
Now he’s back and very little has changed, except of course new music and stories. His favorite saying these days is, “Sometimes the Songs Write Themselves.” For instance, the day after I spoke with him for this interview, I saw a half million dollar tractor and spray rig by the road burning up. Jordan simply posted, “sometimes the songs write themselves.” And this time, I had a third method to my madness in giving him a call.
If you know anything about Jordan Robert Kirk, you know that he has a day job working with the Kirk Family Farm in Crosby County, Texas. He’s the real deal, and I have never scheduled an interview with him that didn’t have to be timed around his farming commitments. I wanted to know how CovID19 was affecting the business of agriculture. I was pretty sure Jordan wouldn’t mind talking about it a bit, especially since his entertainment career has been sidelined by a world pandemic.
In short, Free Range Texan Episode 45 knocked a home run. Jordan Robert Kirk visited with us about what CovID19 might be doing to an already burdened agriculture community, but also talks about his latest radio release and as always shares it with us. And we are glad to make his video available here on our blog.
Additionally, Michael Shawn’s Campfire stumbled into a true story that began generations ago and is still happening today right outside of the small West Texas town of Wink. Nothing made up about this scenario. It is an interesting and somewhat captivating campfire tale. Free Range Texan Episode 45 rolls out Thursday, May 7th right after dark Texas time. Enjoy!
