Episode 190: Veteran songwriter Bruce Robison set the pace for the alt-country/Americana format in the 1990s and wrote hit songs for George Strait, the Dixie Chicks and others.

Now TNW has released its first full album by a solo songwriter, and that's Tony Kamel, ten-year founding member of string band Wood & Wire. In a split hour, I speak with Tony about his life around the Gulf Coast and his work with Bruce on the album Back Down Home. Then it's a catch up with Robison about his vision for The Next Waltz.
