Premiere Networks has launched a new iHeartRadio Original Podcast, Crook & Chase: Nashville Chats.
The weekly podcast features Crook & Chase Countdown hosts Lorianne Crook and Charlie Chase leading in-depth, exclusive interviews with country music’s biggest artists, as well as archived conversations from their 30 years in broadcast.
The first two podcasts feature Luke Bryan and Keith Urban.
“We love getting up close and nosy with our guests—it’s going to be a lot of fun!” said Chase. Adds Crook, “Our candid conversations with the stars surprise even us! We have never-before-heard stories behind the music, as well as archived interviews that go back to the very beginning of the stars’ careers, plus amazing in-studio performances.”
Chase explains, “It all adds up to a fun and entertaining look at the personal and professional moments that propel these country artists to stardom.”
“Lorianne and Charlie are two of the best interviewers in the business,” said Julie Talbott, President of Premiere Networks. “Country music fans are going to love this new podcast featuring more of their unique and entertaining conversations with the biggest stars in the format.”
Crook and Chase debuted as a team in September 1983 and have produced thousands of hours of programming, as well as countless award shows and specials. Much of their personal and professional history was documented in their 1995 book, Crook and Chase: Our Lives, The Music, And The Stars. Crook and Chase were inducted into the Country Radio Hall of Fame in 2013, and in 2017, they were surprised on stage at the Grand Ole Opry as stars and the industry awarded them the Bob Kingsley Living Legend Award.
