    So cool bringing Josh Abbott on it was awesome to hear y’alls take on Texas Country. It’s funny because y’all two were the background music at all on my parties like Pat Green was for you!

    I loved this interview. I know a little about Texas Country and Josh Abbott was one of the firsts I listened to.

    I heard this on Tune-In first. Not being from Texas, but Mississippi which is credited for several styles of music too. I realized Texas Country was different with the discovery of Guy Clark, Townes in the early 70's. And they both credit other Texans for their style, you nailed it with it being a cultural thing unique to Texas. Thank you for sharing... Godspeed

    Great podcast. Definitely one of the best one yet. Really nice to hear Josh’s views on the world. Although I’m on the other side of the pond I must say I agree whole heartedly. Really nice to hear someone not afraid to question what’s going on with views or politics. Great show. Yee Yee.

    Granger, I think you are an awesome performer/singer/songwriter. I will always be a fan. I just don't agree with what Josh Abbott had to say. I will say that I believe Texas is not BEHIND on ANYTHING. I think we are a great state and have so much pride because we have morals and values. No one has to agree with me. Just how I feel. I don't think we need to or have to do what other states are doing, just because. Let's stay Texans and be proud of who we are. Not follow the crowd. God bless Texas! YeeYee!

    Please tell me the intro song "YEE YEE Nation" will be on your new album. Can't get enough of it, absolutely love it.

    I was in the crowd at a concert where Josh used the stage to confess being an alcoholic and then proclaimed that he was 26 days sober. I had been to many past concerts of his and witnessed his not-so-friendly, self-absorbed attitude. I almost wrote him off as a "favorite" because of it. Thankfully, that night changed my opinion of him. I loved his vulnerability in front of a crowd of strangers. You have done yourself proud, Josh. Thank you for proving that people/music are ever-evolving and can (and do) change for the better.

    I loved this podcast. I lost my dad suddenly on March 4, 2006, and I didn't get to say goodbye. "Five More Minutes" and "Tractor" bring tears to my eyes every time.

    Awesome interview. She's like Texas has been the ringtone for my wife ever since we got married. Plus you guys are spot on how Texans feel, being a Texan who lives in PA now friends and my wife's family give me a hard time (in jest) about our pride.

    I love this honesty from Josh! I love the kind words Granger added for the forgiveness to our journey with sin. I have been there Josh and I completely understand how you feel. I will take Granger's words if that conversation is ever had with my sons.

    Josh... you were doing pretty good till your views went against the Bible....especially with position The Smiths/Arise with Amber stand for in their videos. This interview should've stayed with music and stayed out of politics and social issues.

    I was leary when I saw how long this was but started watching it anyways. I watched every second, I think you and Josh are two of the most genuine good human beings in country music. This was awesome!

      Rowdy Broomstick a podcast with Dr Lee would be awesome

    • Rowdy Broomstick
      Rowdy Broomstick

      Hey what a good idea! I would love to hear from Dr Lee Carriker he could really explain alot about Texas music, I think or least he'd have a alot of knowledge. a great guy to have on after a show like this. Matt Carriker's Dad is a older guy I've always found to be so intresting and his channel "Out on the Ranch" a video podcast like the first one Rob and Granger did would work for Dr Lee.

    Thank you so much for bringing Josh Abbott on. You need Wade Bowen, Randy Roger's, Aaron Watson, Trent Willmon, Rich O'Toole, Kevin Fowler, Roger Creager, Cody Canada, Cory Morrow or even Brandon Kinney on. I may live in New York but definitely know what Texas Country music is. I love my Texas music. I have big collection of different Texaa artists cds. I have watched the Oh Tonight video when it came out loved it than and still love it. Loved hearing you and Josh talk. Awesome podcast.

    • cfvfd417

      Wade Blowin was the artist that got butt hurt about his comment

  • Nathanael Harwood

    Some of the things Josh said I did not agree with. Although, he did have SOME valid viewpoints. But, I agree that we should all develop some common sense. Either way, loved this podcast. Yee Yee!

    It was great hearing from Josh Abbott. I drove up to San Angelo in September of 2018 to see you and Josh but the show was canceled due to a storm. 😢 Still hope to see y’all together someday. Safe travels (It’s great to be able to actually say that.) ❤️Have a great week. Oh, by the way, you are absolutely correct; YEE YEE leggings are important! ❤️🙏

    A lot of times I wish I lived in/grew up in Texas. I'd definitely vote Josh Abbott. I live in and grew up in Spokane, Wa. Don't get me wrong, I love the PNW. Eastern Washington is a lot different than Seattle and I only speak for myself but I'd take Abbott over Inslee any day. We need more politicians like you 🙌🏻👏🏼

    • Lynn

      I'm with you Christina. I'm from the west side of the state between Seattle and Tacoma and I absolutely HATE listening to the politics around here, but Josh had my attention and I say...Come on Josh, move to WA. I'll vote for ya. The man has some common sense.

    I've yet to see ANY TRUTH AT ALL from social media sites. They are disturbing...and it's a virtual reality whenever you interact in the internet world. It's virtually real...remember that. Because there are people who use whats inside this as actual factual real world actual things, and thats scary too. People so delusional that this made up world in cyberspace is now the real world. And whats out in public and dying homeless on the streets isn't real...and doesn't exist or matter. They want to force me into a nightmare virtual reality...and I can't be. I'm too big to fully fit all my awesomeness down into a small computer then recorded virtually on a hard drive as magnetic strip of information. Nay gals and gents, virtually real world isn't very pretty...nasty and mean. Facebook is a cult website for demons to coordinate their lies against the truth and reality at. I wouldn't give too much weight to what transpires in a virtual landscape...ots all 1's and zeros...not flesh, blood, energy and power...that stems from God through the man...not whats imagined and made up fabricated in cyber virtually real spaces. C'mon guys, t.v. isn't real...virus isn't real..didn't ya'lls mommas ever tell you whats what?

    Granger did you ever apply for an SBA loan? You should be able to get help to pay for your team's payroll etc. I did for the tornado that hit my property. It was a fast process and the employees are very helpful. I wish you the best.

    • ၂еԼւկ Ведդ

      @TrishaQPTexas I asked the same thing. Those SBA loans are great for specific companies. Granger would do well w/one.. They are called "Small" ie employees, for a reason. ✌💟💠YeeYee

      This was recorded before Lathans podcast appearance so it's a bummer that the verbage is in there about being the 1st artist he's had on but this was just recorded before and not released at that time.

    Loved this one, G! I’ve listened to Josh for several years now but I have learned so much more about him and have a lot of respect for the man he’s grown to be! The story he told about the untrue things out there about him was crazy. That makes me wonder...Granger, have you heard any stories about yourself that are completely untrue? Thanks for always bringing us amazing content. I hope y’all have a great week!
