Recently I was a guest on the show “Selling Nashville” on the CW. It’s hosted by my longtime friend @andyhuntrealtor with Nashville On The Move. I was interviewed about #thesmoakstack in Berry Hill and a little about how we make records. Check it out! Thanks andy!!!

Loved hanging with Paul and filming this episode. He's hands down one of the nicest, most humble, and talented guys around and I'm so grateful to know him. He makes everyone he meets feel incredibly special and takes the time to get to know them. Loves the Lord. Loves his family. Loves his people. Loves to rock on nearly every instrument out there. I knew when I started this show I would want to do an episode with him. Thanks, Moak, for letting us in to your space for a bit. Now go win a Grammy!

Tomorrow I start another year of trying to get it right, knowing fully that getting it right is impossible. And starting to realize that it’s not even the goal. The goal is honesty. I hear it in all my favorite records. I hope you will hear it in mine. Cheers and happy 2022. #thesmoakstack

My highlight for 2021. Hands down. Never saw it coming. Actually too many thoughts to write about this. Let’s just say that Ann Wilson is an absolute goddess and Tom Bukovac, @tbonelucido, and @seantlane are the best ones in the game. I pushed myself a lot to rise to this gig, and the reward was some of the most amazing shows I’ve ever played. This was a gift I never knew I needed. So proud to be an “Amazing Dawg”. Thank you @annwilson. #annwilson

This song is word for word the story of where @goodbyejune came from and the mission statement for where they’re headed. It’s the second single from the record we made during the shutdown. I’m so proud of this record. If you like true rock then give this a spin. Full length in February. 🤘🏼Much love.

Congrats to @tripthewitch! The covid-born brainchild of my good buddy Tom Bukovac and one of my guitar heroes Dean Deleo of @stpband. Dean is in my top 5 most influential guitarists (no joke, ask anyone I’ve given my top 5 to in the past 20 years). His writing and playing style is so interesting to me, capturing both angst and finesse. When Tom called I got so excited. Of course covid threw a giant wrench in our plans and we ended up recording remotely. I still hope to meet Dean and tell him how much his playing means to me. Until then we have this record. Tom, thanks for the call buddy. #tripthewitch #tombukovac #deandeleo #stonetemplepilots #stp #thesmoakstack

When I was a teenager music found me in the form of an electric guitar. That feeling is the high I’ve been chasing my whole career. If you wanna know what it feels like just watch this. Still a teenager in my heart. Thank you @annwilson for reminding me what this whole thing is about. And to the best band I’ve ever been in, @tbonelucido @seantlane #tombukovac. See you all soon.

Here’s a partial list of projects I produced that have been released during the pandemic. There’s more on the way. I’m so incredibly thankful to each artist/label for not only entrusting me with their art but also keeping my career and the studio alive in a really tough time for everyone. Tonight I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the last year in spite of the hardships. Much love to everyone and here’s to many more. ❤️ #thesmoakstack

Save. Exit. In. Save. Real. Nashville.
@exit_in
REM, Faith No More, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The Allman Brothers, The Black Crowes, and Black Flag, to list a very small few. This club is as historic as @theryman in my opinion (and I’ve played both dozens of times). If the Ryman is a marker that you’ve made it, then Exit/In is the starting line. The shows are louder, sweatier, and more energetic. Please consider giving to the gofundme to try and save this important venue in a town that’s becoming increasingly venue-less. Exit/In provided a space for me to grow as a performer and musician. If we don’t provide these spaces then music city will be just a moniker instead of a mantra. ❤️ #exitin

@bonesowens is the definition of a real artist. This record is a result of as his song says “a long, long time”. An artist who took the journey to find themselves. It’s a messy mission. I’m so proud to have walked those trails alongside him. And the beautiful part is through this journey we became real friends. So this release is extra special to me because I celebrate both the record and the relationship. @bonesowens I’m so proud of you bro!!!!
