Roger Miller & Shakey Graves

Episode 101

Aaron and Brent spotlight music from an Austin-based singer/songwriter who started his career as an actor before transitioning into a role as a one-man band and an 11 time Grammy Award-winning member of the Country Music Hall of Fame who found his way into the mainstream by landing several songs on the Billboard Top 10.

Featured in TV roles like Friday Night Lights under his real name, Alejandro Rose-Garcia, before self-releasing his debut album in 2011, Aaron looks at three songs from Shakey Graves.

Starting as a songwriter in the late 50s before achieving success in his career as a singer, actor, and Tony Award-winning composer, Brent highlights three songs from Roger Miller.
