Episode 166: Still waters run deep with Nashville's Mando Saenz. He's cool and contemplative in conversation, while songwriters tell you he's a fountain of ideas in the writing studio, where he spends most of his time. The Texas native got his start in Houston and early tours with Hayes Carll. Fate brought him to Nashville where he's written and recorded since the mid 2000s for the innovative Carnival Music. He's especially close to Jim Lauderdale and Kim Richey and his songs have been recorded by Miranda Lambert and Lee Ann Womack, Midland and many more. His fourth album for the label and his most musically adventurous is All My Shame. Also a fun chat with Andrew Nelson and Blount Floyd, founders and co-leaders of the roots rock band Great Peacock.
