Acoustic guitarist Jason Ahlbrandt came to Nashville with his band, hoping to find warmer weather than his Pennsylvania roots, along with obtaining a record deal. Although the recording contract never came to fruition, Jason wound up touring all over the world with the likes of Easton Corbin and Guy Penrod.

Now he's created beautiful albums on his own, from children's lullabies, to hymns, and even an acoustic Christmas album.

On this podcast, Jason offers advice on how to get gigs, make connections you'll keep, and play the music you love.
