Buddy Greene Part 2

This week, in between the two interviews with Buddy Greene, I was able to be in Nashville and attend an evening of great music with Buddy and a few of Nashville’s finest musicians at the iconic Station Inn. It was a wonderful evening, filled with music ranging from Gospel to Irish jigs to Christmas (both traditional and not-so-traditional). I hadn’t planned to be there right in the middle of these FIRST PERSON programs with Buddy, but I’m very happy it worked out that way.

If you have not listened to last week’s interview, part one, I encourage you to click on it here on the website and listen as Buddy tells us his story. This week we turn to a more recent conversation I had with him just a short time ago. As part of the conversation in part two, he tells the story of writing the music to Mark Lowry’s lyrics for the Christmas classic, Mary Did You Know. Coincidentally at the Nashville event, Mark was in the audience and Buddy invited him to the stage to sing their song– a great moment.

It’s not from this week’s performance, but here is a version of Buddy and Mark singing the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4GOg3ulX90

ONE MORE THING: After the radio conversation, there is a bonus track here online as Buddy discusses his harmonica collection.

Thanks for listening this week and Merry Christmas!
