I was honored to conduct a phone interview with Grammy Award winning musician Chris Thomas King. He has a new album coming out on 10/4/11 called Antebellum Postcards. He not only shared a lot of the stories behind the songs, he also gave me the history behind many of the standards that he covered. This is music that got a lot of people through some tough times in their life, and he is doing his part to ensure that these songs can do the same for people today. We spent over an hour talking about his music, his career, and his movie roles. Mr. King was kind enough to send me the album before we spoke, and it is incredible. He has a way of really painting a picture with his words and music. There is a lot of meaning in his song selection, and he tells me all about it. You'll have to wait just a few more weeks to hear the album, but it will be worth the wait! Meanwhile this interview can serve as a companion to that album, and hold you over until it gets here. Learn more about him at www.christhomasking.com, and let him know that you heard about the new album from the Artist Connection Podcast!
