Country Music’s First Podcast connecting fans to their Favorite Artists and Outdoor Passions
NASHVILLE – Country music artist Nate Hosie, whose new album The Woodsman just dropped, is no stranger to life on the road with guitar in his hands or time spent in the woods hunting turkey with a shotgun. Listeners to Country Outdoors with Mary and Mitch podcast will get a real taste of what it’s like on both fronts as they welcome Nate Hosie to their show on Monday, November 4.
Country Outdoors, available as a first-ever podcast connecting country music fans with their favorite artists, allows fans to connect their passion for country music with the outdoor passions of their favorite singers, songwriters and country music entertainers. Hosted by country music aficionados and outdoor enthusiasts, Mary O’Neill Phillips and Mitch Petrie, the podcast gives listeners a unique opportunity to hear the untold stories from the road, woods, streams, lakes and oceans of their favorite artists.
“Nate Hosie has been a friend for a long time, and we’re excited to talk with him and give our listeners a little different perspective about his life on the road, as well as at home,” Petrie said.
Each episode features insightful interviews with top artists who will share untold stories of outdoor experiences that have inspired their music and lives. Tyler Farr kicked off the bi-monthly interview schedule of artist interviews and will be followed by some of the biggest names and rising stars in country music – Hosie, Craig Campbell, Dylan Scott, Jordan Davis, Drake White, Jon Langston, Craig Morgan, LOCASH and new artists joining the schedule each week.
“Country Outdoors is finding a groove with listeners and hope the momentum of having great guests with lively stories to tell will encourage more listeners to tune-in,” O’Neill Phillips said.
In addition to artist interviews, fans will hear special “Outdoor Moments” brought to them by influencers in-and-outside the country music world during a bi-weekly segment. The podcast creates a unique opportunity for advertisers to reach a more diverse audience as well.
Sponsors of the podcast include: MyOutdoorTV.com, the global leader in streaming of outdoor-television programming and Twisted X, a creator of comfortable, hand-crafted footwear for men, women, children and infants.
