I usually interview women for my podcast, but I had to make an exception when I got the opportunity to talk to Cody Alan. I have loved Cody for so long. He has always had the kindest heart, and most inviting spirit to be around. Watching him own his true identity as a gay man in country music, and taking that risk of wondering if he would be exiled from the community, where so few people have ever come out as LGBTQ was a huge moment of bravery for Cody, and powerful to observe. Cody is one of the trailblazers for equality and acceptance in country music. He shares with me how incredible it felt to receive the overwhelming support from artists and the community, and how he uses his platform to help others embrace their individuality by living by the motto “make your mess your message.” Learn more about your ad-choices at

I loved getting real with Tatiana Houser. We started the conversation off with her life in Australia where she played golf and rode horses competitively. She still rides horses and says that riding allows a part of her to come alive and be herself that nothing else does. We then get really personal and talk about a time when Tatiana felt out of control with her diet, body, self esteem, and past relationship. She opens up about how she moved through that painful period to become a holistic health coach where she really learned to love taking care of herself, physically and emotionally and spreading this knowledge to others. One of my favorite parts of the interview is where Tatiana tells her love story with Randy Houser. They met and fell in love instantly. Randy is best friends with Tatiana’s sisters husband, hit songwriter Dallas Davidson, so they met through them. Within weeks Tatiana was moving over to the United States from Australia and planning her life with Randy. They are now married with a baby boy on the way.

I have loved this little firecracker for over a decade. I met Kelly when I was in college at Belmont, and we became fast friends.  At that time she was a single mom of 2 amazing kids, an A&R consultant, hosting a TV show, making furniture, and basically a powerhouse machine doing it all with THE MOST optimistic attitude.  That's Kelly.  Life never gets her down, and you won't find her whining that it's not fair.  She always sees the glass half full, and is not afraid to work hard and get her hands dirty.  She also is never afraid of being told NO.  She will always find a way, and I admire that so much about her.  She tells me her amazing love story with Chris Janson... How he knew he loved her instantly; how he was thrilled and honored to get to be a step dad to her kids, and even asked them for permission to marry Kelly.  Kelly now goes on the road pretty much full time with Chris, manages him, is a Publisher (has a co-venture with Warner-Chapel), is a songwriter and also has 2 more precious kids with Chris.  We talk about the moment Chris was inducted into The Grand Old Opry as the youngest living member and what a day in the life of the Janson household looks like....

I discovered Caroline Bryan’s Instagram page last year and my life was changed forever. Not only is Caroline a total bombshell, she is the funniest prankster I have ever witnessed. Over Christmas, Caroline did “the 12 days of pranks” where she hid in a life size teddy bear and scared every family member and friend walking by, put fingernail polish on a bar of soap only to hear Luke wonder why it’s not lathering up lol, plus many more pranks involving snakes, fog horns and fart machines. She also has a sidekick, LeClaire, Luke’s mother-in-law. Luke definitely got his dance moves from his mother, bc she can cut a rug! The Bryan Family is so much fun and so inspiring. They know how to enjoy life and find joy in everyday. Caroline and I chat about her love story with Luke and how they met in college. We also talk about how she and Luke have survived tragedy. Luke lost both his siblings and brother-in-law, and took in their 3 children: a son who was in high school and 2 college age daughters to live with them and their 2 sons Bo and Tate. Caroline and Luke also started a charity, Brett’s Barn, with Caroline’s brother and sister-in-law, in honor of her brother’s daughter Brett who died at a very young age. Brett’s Barn opens its doors to sick and disabled children to come pet and love on the animals. It’s a true sanctuary. Caroline has a heart of gold and uses her life to spread love and healing and laughs. She is such an example of faith.

It was so fascinating to learn about her musical past. When she was 18, she linked up with Justin Timberlake’s manager and moved to his musical compound in Orlando FL that he created for all of his artists and boy bands to live and develop their talents. At the compound there were recording studios, rehearsal rooms and basically anything you need as an artist at your beck and call. Katelyn lived here for years.

At 17 years old, Brittney suffered great loss with the murder of her grandmother who raised her.  She was forced to grow up and learn how to be resilient and self motived at a very young age.  She surrounded herself with people who lifted and pushed her to never settle for less than she was worth.  In college she was on the fast track to becoming an accountant (she got all A's), when she felt a calling to switch to psychology and truly dive into understanding people and sharing her story.  Brittney has always had the confidence to follow where her heart guides her, even if it's scary.  That led to her opening an Etsy's jewelry store from her one bedroom apartment where she would take old, broken jewelry and twist it around into something new and spectacular.  Brittney met and married Brian from Florida Georgia Line when she was finishing up at the University of Georgia and went straight from college to the tour bus.  On the road, she and Brian combined their creative juices and launched a clothing/lifestyle brand, Tribe Kelley.  They now have two beautiful storefronts: one in Nashville and one in 30A FL.  Brittney and Brian are hands on every part of their company.  They take pride in the quality of their products and that they are American Made.  Brittney and Brian also take pride in their marriage and showing that marriage is sexy and cool.  FGL has never been shy to put their wives in the spotlight and show that you can be a rockstar and love your wife at the same time.  Get ready to be beyond inspired with this episode.

I could not be more thrilled to kick of 2019 continuing my Music City Wives Series with this angel, Hayley Hubbard. Hayley has the most gentle, giving spirit.  She is so inclusive and kind, and radiates so much love for humanity.  It was inspiring getting soulful with Hayley, to hear her talk so openly about how she is finding the courage to speak up and use her voice and platform, even though it had formerly terrified her.  She talks a lot about God and several moments in her life where God smacked her in the face with a message loud and clear.  One of those being when she was about to move to LA.  She had a roommate and life lined up, ready to sign a lease, when this cute boy she was just friends with, Tyler Hubbard, told her "No, I don't think you should go... Have you prayed about it yet?"  The next day, God gave her an answer loud and clear.  She is now married to Tyler (of Florida Georgia Line) and has the sweetest baby girl Liv.  Hayley and Tyler's love is more than inspirational.  FGL includes their wives in all that they do publicly, and have shown that marriage is a sexy and a beautiful thing in the Entertainment Industry, where so many people before have not wanted to promote marriage.  Hayley and Tyler are definitely couple goals and more than that, they are incredible people.

This beauty radiates positivity. She should be a supermodel, for real.  I met Jenna when Michael was on tour w Jason Aldean in 2015, and Jenna's hubby, DeeJay Silver, was the rockstar DJ that played between all the sets.  During that time she had a perfect pregnancy with her now precious 2 year old son, Wake.  After Wake was born, Jenna went through a miscarriage.  It devastated her.  This episode is so personal because when we recorded it, I was going through a miscarriage and was heartbroken.  We have a very real, emotional conversation about how she handled her heartbreak of loss, and found her way back from fear and sadness to hope and redemption.  She is now 25 weeks pregnant and thriving.  I'm in awe of her openness to share her journey and bring awareness to painful topic.

How could we make it in life without our girlfriends? I know I could not. This is another episode of my GET REAL series Girlfriend Confidential.  Laney, Kristen and I talk all about marriage in the music industry (it's not all glamour, and can have some really trying seasons).  We chat babies, balance, learning to have patience and trust ourselves while giving ourselves grace for the mess and uncertainty. We 3 are already best friends, so this interview is raw and real.  Kristen shares about her miscarriage and Laney talks about learning how to embrace her creativity and instincts even when it feels overwhelming.  "Nobody is nailing it;"  that may be my favorite line of the whole podcast.  But we are all sure giving it are all, and that is more than enough!

This girl is everything. You see her, and your jaw hits the floor because she is just so damn beautiful. Then you get to know her. You see that she has the worlds biggest, brightest heart.  She has been through so much hardship from an abusive relationship (which she openly, bravely shares about), infertility struggles, to overcoming it all with a fairly tale ending of finding her handsome prince and being pregnant with their first child, little angel girl. Jessica moved to NYC right out of High School to pursue becoming a Top Makeup Artist/Stylist.  She boldly went to a Model "Open Call" and introduced herself to the head booker, but not as a model, a makeup artist.   Her confidence and natural skill led him to let her shadow Pam Anderson's makeup artist, and then the rest is history. Jess does all the top celebrities hair/makeup/style.  She makes everyone look so naturally beautiful and sexy.  She is fearless, and she never lets one rejection or hard time set her back.  She gives great advice to young influencers about why being authentic and never doing anything just for a paycheck is crucial.  LOVE HER!

This is a Power Couple. Both Vanessa and Miles are huge forces in their own right. Vanessa is an actress (she was "Brittany Hodges" on "The Young and the Restless," plus so many movies, and TV shows). She is is also an incredible jewelry designer. Vanessa comes from a large entertainment family: her dad starred in "My Two Dads," her mother was a Broadway Dancer and her Brother is a hit Songwriter and Producer. Vanessa has talent oozing through her veins. And she is even more beautiful on the inside than outside. Miles is a staple in Nashville for his Emotional Wellness Retreat Center "Onsite." At "Onsite," he leads people to personal healing. Miles says "Onsite to me more than a therapeutic retreat center, a personal growth center, therapy center, all these things that people can label us, but the truth is, we're a safe place where people can land, relax, take whatever armor they've had on for so long to make themselves feel safe from the world, and just lay it down. We're a place that helps people connect to WHO THEY ARE, so they can go back into the world and connect to other people." WOW. Miles also just launched "Unspoken Podcast" with the incredible Ruthie Lindsey, covering all of these real issues. Vanessa and Miles are also the parents to a precious child, Maverick, and they are so honest about parenting, marriage, and all the ups and downs that happened in their relationship. They share with me how they keep their marriage strong, and why they don't ever claim to be perfect. This interview is ESSENTIAL if you interested healing yourself, and having healthy relationships.

Moved to Nashville, got a record deal on Capitol Records (I interned at Capitol when she was signed there, and have been a huge fan of her for years!), sang a DUET w Keith Urban ("Blue Sky"- talk about powerful song and performance!), then moved to NYC on a whim- she went for a weekend trip then didn't come back for a year or so, entered "America's Got Talent," and got 2nd Place (what!), basically 1st place as far as singing, bc a magician beat her... So in my mind, she won for sure. Emily's voice is other worldly. She is in a league of her own. One of the best voices of our generation....

The Sisterhood! I'm obsessed. I'm not sure how you get cooler, more talented or more beautiful than Alyssa Bonagura and Ruby Stewart. These 2 belong from another era, like the 70's with Stevie Nicks and Cher... But they bring a modern twist to their music and vibe. What they have is magic, and can't quite be defined. Both ladies grew up on the road with traveling musician parents. Ruby is from Rock N Roll Royalty; her dad is Rod Stewart. When they are together it feels like electricity is in the room, you just want to be around it. Hearing about their upbringing both living on the road, finding their own way musically and then joining together by a random stroke of luck in LA, confirms these 2 gals were always destined to be together, make music, and change the world. They even have opposite matching missing front teeth. #carolinehobby #thesisterhood #nashville #podcast #rodstewart #rubystewart #alyssabonagura Learn more about your ad-choices at

He then linked up with the Dixie Chicks and cowrote my FAV song ever "Cowboy Take Me Away," and "Ready To Run." In 2005, Marcus won a Grammy for Best Country Song with his Rascal Flatts hit "God Bless The Broken Road." This man has TALENT FOR DAYS. He is also married to Becca Stevens, an Episcopal Priest, who launched the incredible Thistle Farms which is "a sanctuary for healing for women survivors of abuse, addiction, trafficking, and prostitution."

She is a makeup guru, she has pop-up classes all over the country helping teach women beauty secrets to make them feel beautiful and empowered. Brittany loves helping women feel good about themselves. Her YouTube page is full of all sorts of makeup tutorials from everyday looks to super intense awesome Halloween looks. She also may as well be St. Francis because this gorgeous creature is going to save all the animals. #nashville #podcast #carolinehobby #jasonaldean #youtube Learn more about your ad-choices at

Ali Ryan! This chick styles/cuts/colors ALL the stars; I'm talking FGL and their wives, Thomas Rhett and his wife Lauren, Jason Aldean and his wife Brittany, Dan and Shay and their fiancés, Miranda Lambert, Kasey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini, Michael Ray, Jake Owen, just to name a few. She literally has her hands in everyone's hair! She also co-owns The Dry House with Dierks Bentley's wife Cassidy. Star power for days. Ali and her stylists don't just do celebrities though, they are the premier blow dry bar for anyone in Nashville who wants their hair to look fab. And this place is not just going to give you great hair, it's going to give you a great time while you're there. There's always music, champagne, and a fun crew every time you step into The Dry House. I am lucky enough to go every week with my #NashvilleInsider babe Lindsey Caldwell to get us camera ready, and it's always a high spot of my week. Ali also believes in the power of manifesting your dreams, hustling and living the life you imagine. #nashville #podcast #thedryhouse #carolinehobby #fashion #hair Learn more about your ad-choices at

MAGGIE ROSE! This chick is fire! Back when she was in High School the label executive legend Tommy Mottola realized her talent and helped her score a record deal. She has been making music and making waves ever since. She released a new EP "The Variety Show" last year and it showed us even more what she is capable of as an artist and how talented she is- "Same Sky" is my JAM off that EP. She also has been named one of CMT's Next Women of Country and just got a song cut by Lady Gaga! And to top it off, her heart is just as big as her talent. #podcast #nashville #CMT #maggierose #carolinehobby #ladygaga Learn more about your ad-choices at

Lucie Silvas! This interview was a pure delight! And in the spirit of love (since it is Valentine's Day), how fitting that Lucie's husband John kicked off this interview, interviewing Lucie! He asked her a lot of personal questions, like how much she loved his big, sexy.... beard! Lucie and John then talked all about Lucie's incredible album they co-produced together, "Letters To Ghosts," and what the experience was like working together in the studio. Lucie is from Europe and has been writing songs, playing and singing since she was a wee little thing at the age of 10. At the age of 17 she hit the road touring as a background singer and then went on to score a record deal and sell A MILLION ALBUMS! I repeat, Lucie Silvas has sold A MILLION ALBUMS. Woah. She now is a Nashville Native and has toured with everyone from Little Big Town to Chris Stapleton. She is the tiniest, most stunning creature with the most enormous voice and soul. She has been named one of CMT's Next Women of Country, and Rolling Stone just debuted her trilogy of music videos she made for her album "Letters To Ghosts." Lucie is one of the purest spirits I know; her passion for sharing her gift of music is inspiring and the way she loves her husband, family and friends so fiercely is something nothing short of extraordinary. Oh, and John and his brother TJ, Brothers Osborne, just won CMA Duo Of the year! John tells us how that moment felt in detail! #Nashville #podcast #luciesilvas #carolinehobby #brothersosborne #cmt #womenofcountry Learn more about your ad-choices at

Jamie O'Neal! I LOVE this lady. I have to admit it, I was kinda nervous when I first met Jamie because I am such a super fan of her music. When she came out in 2000 with her back to back #1 songs, "There is no Arizona," and "When I think about Angels," I was hooked. Not to forget, she sang "All By Myself" in the dramatic scene in Bridget Jones Diary (I'm still freaking out about this)! She is so interesting; grew up in a traveling family band, she and her father can both yodel, she's been nominated for 4 Grammys and won ACM best New Artist, and has her own record label called Momentum. #nashville #acm #grammys #carolinehobby #jamieoneal #podcast #itunes Learn more about your ad-choices at

Oh my gosh, we laughed so hard we cried. Then we cried because of all the beautiful life we have lived together in our band Stealing Angels... we talked about the heartbreak we felt when our band broke up, and now how we both have truly found our happiness doing what we love. Tayla is in a duo with a Grammy award winning guitar player, and they play shows all up and down the North West, selling them out! She is married to a man who is her rock and has 2 beautiful little boys. We talk about what it was like growing up as Loretta Lynn's Granddaughter, her love of singing and performing, alcohol-drugs-relapse-addiction and recovery, and how she has finally learned to live in the moment and enjoy the beautiful life she has created. I LOVED interviewing Tayla so much. She is my sister and truly the person who makes me laugh the hardest. #taylalynn #carolinehobby #hypercarolinehobby #nashville #lorettalynn #stealingangels #podcast Learn more about your ad-choices at
