The Taproot Radio Show is getting a new name, web site, and show format. We’ll still have the same great interviews and the same hand-picked, road-tested american music. But the show will now originate from the Americana Music Show web site. For the next few episodes, the show will continue to be available on this site, this site’s RSS feed, and will continue to be available on iTunes under the name Taproot Radio.
On episode 92 of the Americana Music Show, Chelle Rose talks about growing up in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina, writing a song to pacify the ghost of her boyfriend, hearing Malcolm Holcombe play live, why she’s drawn to minor chords, how she learned to depend on herself in her musical career, the thrill she got working with the McCrary sisters, and the preacher that inspired her song, “Rufus Morgan.”
