Two of our favorite contemporary Americana singer/songwriters are on tour together! They play The Grey Eagle Wednesday evening, The Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte on Thursday, and the Bijou Theatre in Knoxville on Friday. Brent Cobb shares that “Hayes is everything a true artist/songwriter ought to be in my book. Somehow I’ve had the privilege of playing shows with him here and there over the years but I’ve always hoped we’d be able to do something a little longer lasting. We’re gettin’ together to give ourselves as well as the crowds something that I believe we’ll all talk about for a while.” As for Hayes’ thoughts: “Every time I listen to Brent I'm reminded that there's still some groove, soul, and sanity in this world. His songs hit their mark with a laid back confidence and invite us to celebrate the good and shake hands after we work through the hard. He's an extraordinary everyman, and that’s the kind of friend I like gettin' together with.”

As Music Director, Martin books our live sessions, and keeps in touch with the record labels and promoters that send us new music. When not at the station, he enjoys gardening, hiking, traveling, history, and raising his daughter on good music and more.
