In this episode, I share my conversation with my friend Sami. He is, so far, my youngest guest on the podcast! Sami shared about what it’s like being a 13-year-old boy in Barbourville, and he educated me on Kentucky culture, baptisms, 50’s country music and trucks. We talked about public school, his grandparents, life in small southern towns and his dream of being a farmer one day. It was really good fun spending time with Sami. He’s very funny, confident and in my opinion quite wise for his age. After we recorded for the podcast, he showed me his record collection. And what was really special is that I got to listen to his favorite song “Good Night Sweetheart Goodnight”, which is not available anywhere online,
as well as some songs from his grandfather’s record. That was really beautiful – to hear Sami’s grandad’s singing fill the room.
I asked Sami to pick the song of the week and he chose “Hey Good Lookin’” by Hank Williams.
