In a recent interview with legendary Nashville artist manager Mike Smith, we talked about this topic as part of Mike’s online artists management course.

“I can see how we can use music to break down barriers.”
“The song is merely the vehicle to help connection happen.”
“When I see how a song connects, it’s more fun than me playing a song that I think is cool.”
