Episode Description:

Rising to the heights of country music fame as the long-haired Little Texas heartthrob on keys, Brady Seals continues to thrive on the edge of the genre. Seals has successfully reinvented himself throughout his career, while always remaining true to his musical roots in rock-tinged country. At 16, Seals left his home in Ohio as a touring musician, and by 21 had scored three #1 hits with Little Texas—all of which he’d co-written, winning him the ASCAP Triple Play award. He went on to release three solo albums in the late 90’s before forming and fronting the quartet of player’s players known as Hot Apple Pie, with whom he scored a top 20 hit (“Hillbillies”) and opened for such superstars as Keith Urban and Tim McGraw. At present, Seals is basking in the creative freedom to finally record the country album he has always wanted to make, while welcoming Hot Apple Pie’s musical contributions and infectious enthusiasm on three tracks on Play Time. Brady Seals continues to create music to satisfy his own soul first, with undying
faith in the “if you build it, they will come” philosophy. He continues to write and perform his own kind of music...his way!

Bobby Terry was just twelve years old when he began playing steel guitar professionally. He came from a musical family and at this young age played in the family band in local clubs throughout Houston, Texas. After mastering the steel guitar and learning several other instruments, Bobby became interested in producing. In 1995, Bobby moved to Nashville and quickly found work as an independent record producer and studio musician. In 2000, he signed a writing deal with Almo Irving Music Publishing. He has secured cuts with Montgomery Gentry, Lonestar, Trace Adkins, Faith Hill. Tim Mcgraw, Brad Paisley, Ricky Skaggs, Chris Cagle,
Neal McCoy, and Trisha Yearwood. Bobby's first major label production credits came as a solo producer and musician on UMPG songwriter Anthony Smith's 2002 Mercury Records debut, If That Ain't Country, followed by producing and writing on Trace Adkins Greatest Hits in 2003. One unique thing that sets Bobby aside from other producers is that he plays nearly every instrument on every record he produces. In the last few years, Bobby has also been in demand as a demo singer and background vocalist. Currently, Bobby is writing for Dann Huff at Crosstown Songs Nashville.
