There seems to be a running theme in the people I talk with. When I listened back to myself telling Randall Goodgame what a nice guy he is, it struck me that I've said the same thing to a lot of my past guests. At first I wondered if it was some sort of interviewing crutch I never knew I had, but then it struck me: Maybe I'm just fortunate enough to have a lot of really nice acquaintances.
That's definitely the case with Randall Goodgame and you don't have to be with him long to realize it. Genuine, kind, quick to smile, and even quicker to laugh, Randall is one of those guys it's super-easy to root for.
The night before our interview, Randall sent me a copy of his new album and to say I was blown away would be an understatement. I was glad to have the chance to give him my feedback in person and he's humble and gracious when complimented. I could learn a thing or two from this guy.
We chatted in The Frothy Monkey in Franklin TN for almost an hour and then chatted for a little longer after the "official" interview was over. I was glad to have finally had the chance to hang out with him after hearing such good things from my past guests, Fred McNaughton and Lisa Landis. Something tells me you'll like hanging out with him, too.
