Surviving the Music Industry

Jul 12, 2016

This week, the guides sat down with the guitarist from Eric Church’s band, Driver Williams. By far one of the coolest dudes to set foot in the bedroom with an English Lit degree. Driver has an interesting background growing up in the country music business but wanted nothing more than to be in a metal band. Brandon and Jason dig deep into his life, and they talk a lot about Driver’s influences in metal; Metallica, Dimebag Darrell, Hatebreed, etc and how he made his way back to the world of country. This episode is chocked full of stories like hanging out with Dimebag Darrell from Pantera, how the rock fans embraced Eric Church in a time that rock was dying, getting kicked off the Rascal Flatts tour, and how Driver's song “Smoke A Little Smoke” was co-written with Eric Church and Jeff Hyde, becoming the most played song on American Jukeboxes. This episode is for players, songwriters, metal fans, and Eric Church fans...DRIVER WANTED!
