unnamed-1.jpg

You may know him from “The Voice” Season 7 where he WON the whole thing! His journey is nothing short of incredible. Grew up Pentecostal, moved to Nashville in 2004 and quickly landed a Publishing Deal. Was in several bands, one w Randy Houser, before finding himself a solo act (he originally just wanted to play bass and sing harmonies). Then right before he went on “The Voice” in 2014 he found himself in his darkest days, barely making it to get by.

Oh how much can change in a year! Flash forward to the next year and he’s the Winner of The Voice and his debut single “My Baby’s Got A Smile On Her Face” debuted on the country charts at #1!! A record only he and Garth Brooks hold. Now he has a new album out, “Top Shelf” of his most personal and best songs yet, and let me tell ya, God has worked some major miracles in his life and he has THE MOST inspiring wisdom about perseverance!

unnamed-2.jpg

Y’all. This girl has a STORY! Like the most magical things have happened to her, from 1) a random encounter w a woman in an LA restaurant where Leah was serving, heard her SPEAKING VOICE, not even singing voice, then 5 days later Leah was at David Foster’s house recording her original songs w him (WHAT?! That only happens in the movies, right?!) 2) Got offered a record deal on the spot at Sony. We talk all about the magic that has happened in her life and career, and also what it feels like to have everything fall apart, find her wings while free falling, and learning to rest and take the time she needed to really find herself and how she wants her music to reflect her soul. She is SO ON FIRE RIGHT NOW! I left this interview feeling so excited for Leah’s future, bc this woman knows who she is, her God Given Talent, and what she wants to do with it.

Episode #8 GET REAL Podcast: Rusty Gaston (THIS Music Publishing)

unnamed-1.jpg

(Publisher Series part 2) I interviewed Rusty Gaston who runs THIS MUSIC, and he talks about how important it is to him to sign not just incredible songwriters, but songwriters that create a positive energy in his Publishing House, and write from their true authentic perspective, not just chasing what’s Hot on the radio. His formula for success is “Love + Fun = Success!” I loved hearing his perspective on what success truly means to him, and it’s not just financial. Tune in tomorrow to GET REAL PODCAST to hear all the wisdom Rusty has to share on Publishing (to those not in the music industry, a publisher is someone who signs songwriters, gets their songs placed on albums, sets up co-writes, and helps guide their songwriters into the most successful opportunities for them). #getreal #getrealpodcast #podcast #podcasts #countrymusic #nashville #musicindustry #publishing #musicpublisher

Episode #1 GET REAL PODCAST: Ben Folds

BEN FOLDS

BEN FOLDS

Ben Folds is a Performer, Singer, Composer, Producer and Photographer. He has released multiple band and solo albums, and had collaborations w artists Sara Bareilles/Regina Spektor/ William Shatner. I had the great honor to interview him this summer for a Pinnacle Bank Event in Nashville. Ben does not just sing and play music, he understands all aspects of composing it. In 2013, he composed a Piano Concerto and has shared the stage with Symphonies everywhere playing it as well as his hits. He truly is a savant.  Music and Art is just who Ben is. We discuss how he found his Calling at a young age in music, how he has used music and art to express himself and stand up for what he believes is important, how he has always navigated the music industry (hint: he trusts his own instincts!), and his love for photography: he recently led a group of fans to Cuba on a Music and Photography Trip of a lifetime. Ben has fearlessly used his passion to guide him. He is true to himself and his art. He is not scared of losing. He knows his talent will always lead him to the right place.  Talking with him was like talking with pure wisdom. He just knows what matters.  I love this conversation and I am so grateful I got to be the one talking to him. Get ready to be inspired!

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for letting us in on your journeys, and inspiring so many people with your lives. Season 1 was only a success because of my incredible guests. THANK YOU! See you back on HYPER Nov 30th!! #hypercarolinehobbypodcast #podcast #podcasts #season1wrapped

I'M LAUNCHING MY PODCAST TODAY! HYPER CAROLINE HOBBY!!

AHHHH! My website (carolinehobby.com) launches today! AHHHHH! My PODCAST launches today! I can’t believe it!? After about 4 months of dreaming, planning, organizing, photo shooting, interviewing, and believing, my vision is a reality! I am so excited to share with you my Podcast: HYPER CAROLINE HOBBY….  Let me explain what my podcast is about; here’s my official bio (fancy, I know :) 

HYPER CAROLINE HOBBY is a fast paced, quick-witted, one-on-one rap session with the incredible celebrity talent pool that lives in Nashville, TN.  Hosted by Caroline Hobby, an original member of the country trio Stealing Angels, this podcast is a must listen for dream chasers, connectors and bad asses in training*. Hobby is an accomplished songwriter, publisher, record label promoter, and two-time competitor on NBC’s The Amazing Race.  Caroline is married to the smokin’ hot, sexy front man of country music rock band A Thousand Horses. Her world travels and industry experience look great on her resume, but it’s her charismatic personality that ropes the most elusive celebrities in to dish it all out to Hyper Caroline Hobby. 

Podcast guests are movers and shakers ranging from recording artists, entrepreneurs, and music industry execs to hit songwriters, fashionistas and athletes.  Tune in to hear the heart, story, motivation and inspiration behind each guest.  Each week the message will motivate, empower and encourage listeners to keep dreaming, show up, do the work and make their mark. 

*Talking to badass people may lead to hyperactivity, inspiration, and dream chasing.

So there you have it in a nutshell! I am so excited to kick this new adventure off, and I am even more thrilled that you will come on this journey with me.  My first guest is Darius Rucker; he was beyond inspiring to interview… He conquered the Rock/Pop genre as Hootie and the Blowfish, and then crushed country music when he became a solo act.  The lineup of guests I have for my show is just crazy good, so you won’t want to miss an episode.  I’ll have a new episode every Wednesday until the end of time :).  This podcast is truly a dream come true for me.  I love hosting and interviewing; there is so much I want to learn about people and what gets them hyper about their dreams and goals.  Hyper Caroline Hobby has been an amazing privilege for me to get to know people’s hearts.  I hope this podcast inspires you as much as it has inspired me.  And I hope that it encourages you to chase your own dreams after listening to the wild journeys of my guest, who never gave up on their desires of their hearts. 

Soooooo, with no further ado, WELCOME TO HYPER CAROLINE HOBBY! WELCOME TO MY WORLD!

 

XO,

Caroline Hobby
