Guitarist/ Vocalist Ryan Malott's love of both Bluegrass/ and punk rock is on display in his band 500 Miles to Memphis.
He talks to Will about the writing of the songs Broken, Busted, Bloody, and All My Friends are Crazy, struggles with addiction both personally and in his family, how the classic album Sunshine in a shotglass allowed the band to play over 200 shows a year for several years, performing solo, how studio owners can get additional work from licensing and sync work, the new 500 Miles single I Want Mine, and Will's observation of a beautiful guitar hanging on Ryan's wall leads to an amazing and touching story of Ryan's collaboration with a Kentucky music legend.
