246. Terra Lightfoot on Jackson Browne 'Running on Empty' (1977)

Canadian singer-songwriter-guitarist Terra Lightfoot joins me to talk about Jackson Browne's classic chronicle of life on the road 'Running on Empty'. We talk about how the album was recorded live across Browne's US tour, the different aspects of touring life reflected across the songs, discuss what is the best song named 'Cocaine Blues', why Browne sued the Republican Party for using the title track and Terra recounts her night-long tequila-fueled jam session with Jackson himself. My Favorite Album is a podcast on the impact great music has on our lives. Each episode features a guest on their favorite album of all time - why they love it, their history with the album and how it's influenced them. Jeremy Dylan is a filmmaker, journalist, concert promoter and photographer. He directed the the feature music documentary Jim Lauderdale: The King of Broken Hearts (out now!) and the film Benjamin Sniddlegrass and the Cauldron of Penguins.
