Amanda Shires is a Texas-born, Nashville-based sideplayer turned songwriter, turned force of nature in Americana, folk and alt-country world. We hear some great stories during this interview, like when she asked Brandi Carlile to start The Highwomen with her moments before she had to perform on-stage, and the anger she feels at her husband when he tries to use her Leonard Cohen guitar. Also, in the Lightning Round, we learned that Amanda loves rap & hip-hop, and when she was learning Texas fiddle, she really wanted to be a hip-hop fiddlist.
