LEXINGTON, Ky. — Grayson Jenkins and Zachary Martin joined me this week for episode 85 of Wick’s Picks on RadioLex.
We covered everything there is to know about Jenkins’ new Cowboy Dream EP, out Friday with a celebratory show at The Burl with Wayne Graham, including the project’s all-star cast featuring Miles Miller (Sturgill Simpson) and Jesse Wells (Tyler Childers); co-writing, Jenkins’ growth as an artist and much more. Jenkins also performed two of the EP’s four songs live in studio – “Jessie Leigh” and “Dear Katie” – mixed in with recorded versions of the compilations other two tracks – Cowboy Dream” and “Fear Of Missing Out.”
Following Jenkins’ and Martin’s visit we fired up a series of new music from local acts and others from artists visiting Lexington this week including Maria Carrelli, The Weeks and Nick Dittmeier, among others.
