Excited to hang out with fellow Bluebird artists and to get cozy on the tour bus, Erin Enderlin tells host Beth Brinker about her forthcoming project and some fun things she's got in store for fans throughout and after Country Throwdown Tour.
Fans might already be familiar with the country songwriter from songs that have have been recorded by Lee Ann Womack ("Last Call") and Alan Jackson ("Monday Morning Church"), but the artist is now ready to release her own album. Erin has been working with Jamey Johnson and Jim "Moose Brown" on the record, and she reveals that she "couldn't be prouder" and that recording it has been "a dream come true."
A "singing son of a gun," Erin also reveals that Randy Houser makes an appearance on the new project.

Next up, Beth Brinker chats with Minnesota native Caitlyn Smith, who is excited to say she has signed a publishing deal and is officially writing songs for a living.
Although she has only lived in Nashville for a year, Caitlyn has already achieved great success. She recently got her first cut as a songwriter on the Jason Aldean record with a tune called "It Ain't Easy," and has gotten multiple placements on television shows such as Make It or Break It, Jersey Shore and Gossip Girl.
Thrilled to be part of the Throwdown, Caitlyn says, "I'm just most excited to observe and learn from all these wonderful artists and to see what it's like to tour."
Caitlyn Smith has three independent records and a new single called "My Lover's Gone and Left Me" available on iTunes. Be sure to hear more from the country singer-songwriter in this interview!
Putting a special spotlight on lady #3, Beth Brinker talks to Dani Flowers about the rise of her country career.
The singer-songwriter shares an interesting story explaining why the number '3' seems to be her lucky digit. Growing up a huge country music fan - citing Lee Ann Womack, Patty Loveless and George Strait as particular favorites - Dani tells us that her biggest dreams involved (1) signing to the MCA record label, (2) writing songs for Sony Tree, and (3) having the famed Erv Woolsey as her manager. After years of hard work, Dani has put a 'check' by each of these goals and has witnessed her dreams come true!
