Podcast 401: Rob Ickes & Trey Hensley

Two of Nashville’s finest musicians have teamed up once again for a stellar new album.

On the recently released  ‘Living In A Song,’ Dobro master Rob Ickes and guitarist Trey Hensley perform a collection of tunes that showcase their songwriting chops. On this week’s podcast, we talk about the making of the album, Rob’s background (he’s a rare Dobro player who didn’t start out on guitar!), the art of co-writing, working with Taj Mahal, the gear they use, Doc Watson, and much more.
