Audio Interview-Roger Alan Wade
When I saw Roger Alan Wade a few weeks back at the musINK Festival in Dallas, afterward we headed over to a burger joint to talk about his cousin Johnny Knoxville, Outlaw music, Roger getting clean and sober among other things. The 9513 published a transcript of parts of that conversation that you can read and comment on by CLICKING HERE. But for those hardcore Roger fans, I’ve included audio from our conversation below.

Roger wanted me to mention that his heart and prayers go out to everyone in and around the Nashville area that has been effected by the recent flooding. He was a little worried that some of the things he said about Nashville might be construed as insensitive, especially at this time, but I honestly don’t think anything he said was out of line when he said them three weeks ago, or even now considering the current crisis. Right now we are all part of the country music family.
He also wanted me to mention Peewee Moore, another songwriter from Chattanooga who is going to have his own feature up here real soon. We also talk about Brigitte London, who you can see performing Roger’s song “The Reckless Kind” below.
And last but not least Roger wanted me to give thanks to all the folks over at Melody Roundup Publishing who he is now working with. Melody Roundup includes songwriters like Dennis Knutson, Tommy Barnes, and Wild Bill Emerson, and they are setting up Roger with a songwriting session with Jamey Johnson soon.

I know Bandana, that’s just how it worked out. Roger was feeling light headed and needed to get something to eat, and so a restaurant is where it had to go down. I wasn’t going to post it, but he said so much great stuff I wanted everyone to hear it, and straight from the horses mouth.
