“I can’t remember the first podcast I ever heard from Dave Woods. I just know that it was definitely one of his early ones. He is first and foremost a fan of country music and asks more than just the surface questions. This is what makes Dave’s interviews great to listen to. It seems as we hear Dave, we get to know him, as well as the artist he is talking with. He has a way of making people feel at ease. He has interviewed some of the biggest names and the ones just starting out. They are all treated with the same respect. Congrats on 8 years of In the Country, Dave! Cheers to many more!”
