James McMurtry's Songs Are Short Stories With A Beat

Never one to hold back his opinion - musically, politically or otherwise -  James McMurtry ("America's fiercest singer-songwriter" - CNN) returns to “Musicians’ Spotlight.” There's rarely a dull moment in a conversation that touches on his 25-year career, as well as live performance, his family storytelling pedigree, and his first studio release in six years, "Complicated Game."

(Broadcast: "Musicians' Spotlight," 8/27/15 & 1/7/16. Listen weekly on the radio, Thursdays, 7:30 p.m., or via podcast.)

John Floridis, the host and producer of Musician's Spotlight, has been with Montana Public Radio since 1997. He has interviewed over 200 musicians during that time. He is also an independent recording and performing artist in his own right and a former registered music therapist.
