This week, it's Johnny Reid on the Up Close podcast.
Johnny Reid's new album Fire it Up just came out and we couldn't help but have him in for an Up Close session.
This new record marks a big change for Johnny Reid. His music has moved to new places. While still deeply rooted in the themes and instrumentation that made Johnny Reid's past albums such great country albums, this new album is closer to John Mellencamp or 1980s Bruce Springsteen than it is to Waylon Jennings.
Highlights from this session include the lead single and title track from the new CD, “Fire It Up” and the rocker “Let's Have a Party.”
