Episode 138: Cory Branan


Our favorite Southern gentleman Cory Branan makes his third appearance on the podcast alongside guest Jenny Owen Youngs to discuss touring with the Gaslight Anthem and Against Me!, how a group of angry bookies gave him a black eye back in the day and his path into discovering the delta blues. Seriously, could Cory be any cooler? We also discuss his virtuosic guitar playing and why his unique style of finger-picking doesn’t always translate on his studio recordings. Speaking of which, everyone should check out his latest album “No Hit Wonder” which showcases how man Branan has grown since entering fatherhood proving that there truly is hope for all of us.
