Two KSR favorites collided this morning when John Short called in to talk to Willie Cauley-Stein. Early in the show, Willie said he wanted to start a record label one day, and during his call, John Short said he wanted Willie to make a Bluegrass album. Willie’s response?
“Hey, I would definitely incorporate some Bluegrass music,” Willie said. “That’s where the money’s at, for sure.”
In fact, Willie already has a fiddle player in mind.
“I’ve got a mean fiddler back in Spearville, Kansas, too. My math teacher can play the hell out of the fiddle,” Willie said. “It would be cool for me. That’s — yeah. Why not?”
So, this definitely needs to happen. I know people in Nashville, Willie. We can make it happen.
