the Soul Country Podcast

New ‘cast from DJ Ric Stewart Blends OLD School R&B and Americana sounds with NEW stories and Play-in interviews

Veteran roots music DJ/Filmmaker Ric Stewart debuted Soul Country on January 27, 2019 on WTUL, New Orleans. Combining historic greats with a teeming new crop of talent, the format blends roots music from rockabilly and swamp rock to gospel, zydeco, country blues and all the outlaw and alt-country in-between. The result — a chorus of America’s top songwriters and soulful voices hollerin’ “Oh Yeah!”

Now the Soul Country podcast dives deeper, getting into the stories featured on the Blues Center Interview Series, detailing backstories, funny moments and creative inspirations. Artists are encouraged to pack an axe and a few 10-gallon tales when they enter Soul Country.
