Sam Outlaw left his advertising gig in L.A. a few years back and embarked on a career as a songwriter and musician. He’s just released his second album, the beautiful Tenderheart with a clear influence of his life on the road and all that entails.  I sat down with Sam to talk about the road, meeting Bonnie Raitt and what she had to say about him, the state of country music in 2017 and lots more. Listen in for that conversation and check out great live versions of “Bottomless Mimosas” and my personal album favorite, “Diamond Ring.”
