Just finished my interview with Austin Allsup minutes ago. Folks, this was an absolutely amazing interview experience! He spoke with me from the back of his bus in downtown Nashville on a stormy day, sharing his love for music and family.
Heartfelt memories of his father Tommy Allsup are shared in extensive detail - including a poignant moment of his father almost being on the plane Buddy Holly was in "The Day the Music Died" . It would be 17 years before Austin met his dad, but there is no mistaking the impact and bond they shared together. In addition he shares all about the hardships struggling artists often faces trying to establish a name for themselves in the music industry.
Hear about his joyful time in his church choir as a young boy. As for "The Voice" - you are in for a treat!! Learn all about his experiences on the show, his high regard for Carson Daly, the undeniable influence and support Blake Shelton provided him, and his thoughts on Miley Cyrus.
I feel like I made a new friend. My heart is absolutely overjoyed at this moment, for he has already mentioned he wants to return. As I head out to lunch, this host has a deeply grateful heart.
