The Big Boo Cast, Episode 98

As you can imagine, Melanie and I were delighted to have our good friend Travis Cottrell join us on Episode 98. We catch up on life in general – what’s been going on with our kids, spring sports, Travis’ feelings about the reboot of American Idol – and we also talk a little about Travis’ FANTASTIC new worship album, The Reason.

More than anything else, though, we enjoyed the fire out of a discussion about music from the 70s and 80s. It was a musical memory lane to beat the band (see what I did there)? It was so in-depth, in fact, that I finally decided to make a playlist of (almost) everything we mentioned (WHY isn’t “And When She Danced” from Stealing Home available on any sort of streaming service, I ask you?).

All that to say: we had a blast talking with Travis – so much so that there will be a part 2 posted in the next few days. Hope y’all enjoy it!

  1. What?! No Eagles on that list??

  2. As much as I loved going down memory lane, music-wise, I must admit I sure do miss reading stories about your life/family/work like you used to post. I’ve taken to reading through your archives :)
