Mountain Heart and Sam Bush on WSM

Sounds like big fun’s a-brewin’ this afternoon on WSM.

At 3:00 p.m. (EDT), Jim VanCleve and Josh Shilling of Mountain Heart will welcome Sam Bush into the legendary WSM studio for this month’s edition of That Just Happened with Mountain Heart. Jim tells us that the plan is to both have a nice chat with Sam about his lengthy career as a bluegrass and acoustic music innovator, and to jam on some tunes live in studio.

It sounds like it may be something of an ambush interview, as the Mountain Heart boys have been soliciting questions to ask Sam on Facebook. Jim says that they will be accepting suggestions right up until air time, and will be taking requests online during the show. Watch out Sambro!

The show will air on WSM AM 650, and online at

And no one will fault Jim and Josh if they bring up the 4 star review they got from Country Weekly Magazine for their latest recording, That Just Happened. But they are far too gracious to note that Alison Krauss got only three stars for her brilliant new album in that same issue.

Way to go boys!
