The Co-Write is back from the 7th annual Red River Songwriter's Festival! The boys are here to share their stories from the festivities, as well as their review of some of the shows they were able to see. Sitting down for a brief discussion is the great Walt Wilkins. Walt talks about his involvement with the RRSF, as well as his own festival, Waltstock & Barrel, which is coming up in April.
A special thanks to our friends at TX Whiskey and Legal Draft Beer for supplying your humble hosts, and the artists who joined them, with an ample supply of things to keep us warm in the snow!

For the better part of a decade and a half, Brandon Rhyder has been one of Texas Music's true workhorses. After two early releases, "Because She Loves Me" 2001 & "Behind the Pine Curtain" 2003, Brandon really hit his stride with the release of the critically acclaimed, "Conviction" in 2006. You would be hard pressed to find another album, from any scene, that can go song for song with, "Conviction", and it set Brandon on a collision course with success and all that comes with it. The albums that followed, "Every Night" 2008, "Head Above Water" 2010, "That's Just Me" 2013 & his latest release, 2017's self-titled effort, "Brandon Rhyder", have solidified Brandon as one our great songwriter's.
On this episode of The Co-Write, Brandon sits down to talk about his early life behind the pine curtain, his struggle in those early days, the chain of events set off by the release of "Conviction", and his relentless quest for the great song.

For many people, 2017 was a real punch in the gut. We here at The Co-Write hope that we brought some sort of relief from the exhausting news cycle that whirls around us constantly. Our goal in 2018 is nothing short of the same. We look forward to bringing you more, expansive interviews with the artists you love, but plan to do more podcast featuring your loyal hosts giving their opinions on a wide range of topics that pop up throughout the year.
We will kick things off in 2018 with a trip to Red River, New Mexico for the Red River Songwriter's Festival, and look forward to bringing you daily podcasts from the festival, including interviews with the artists performing there.
We are excited to announce a new partnership with our friends at TX Whiskey and Firestone Roberts Distilling. TX Whiskey is one of the fastest growing whiskey brands in the United States. Their proprietary blend offers a unique whiskey experience that is both smooth and flavorful. Their recently released TX Bourbon is one of the finest new bourbons I have had the pleasure of enjoying, and I highly recommend you give it a shot (or two) as well. Their all new Whiskey Ranch is the largest whiskey distillery west of the Mississippi, and sits on the 112 acres that was once Glen Gardens Country Club, in Fort Worth. The facilities are beautiful, and great for hosting private events. Check out www.frdistilling.com for more information, and be sure to go check out Whiskey Ranch in the near future!
