Why We Write with Kim Ruehl, Eps. 49: Drew Holcomb

Drew Holcomb has made a track record of writing all kinds of songs, across his eleven studio albums.

Whether calling the audience to the dance floor or drawing tears, his songs cut straight to the truth, to the emotional reality of what it is to be human. On the latest episode of the Why We Write podcast, Holcomb talks about how fatherhood has shifted his relationship with his own creativity.

He shares how his live shows are like a middle school dance, and he also gets into the influence Anne Lamott and John Prine have had on his writing, the inspiration he gets from collaboration, and—piggy backing on our recent Folk Debate Club episode—he ruminates on what authenticity in music means to him.
