From 1983 to 1988 Bobby Bare hosted the TV show “Bobby Bare and Friends” on TNN: The Nashville Network. Thanks to Bare’s easy-going manner, the series captured American musicians and songwriters in an intimate way that few televised programs had at the time. The show was based on what Bare called “guitar pulling”: “That’s where somebody plays and then someone can’t wait to pull the guitar away and sing his song.” Some of the artists featured included Toy Caldwell, Charlie Daniels, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, David Allan Coe and more. Now, more than 30 years later, Bare is announcing a new podcast of the same name featuring conversations with Jamey Johnson, Trace Adkins, Jessi Colter, Ray Stevens, Billy Joe Shaver, Joe Ely, Delbert McClinton, Bill Anderson and more. “Bobby Bare and Friends” launches today on podcast networks.
“Bobby Bare and Friends” is produced by 650 AM WSM in association with 117 Entertainment. New episodes will be released twice a month and will air on Route 650, 650 AM WSM’s Americana centric digital streaming station, at 3 p.m. CST on release days along with highlights being played throughout the week on the historic radio station itself.
