This weeks guest on The A Side is Wes Hampton. Wes is by far one of the best vocalists I think I have ever heard. From show choirs to church choirs he now has one of the most coveted jobs in the world of Southern Gospel Music as one of the lead singers of the very famous”Gaither Vocal Band”. Now working with other great singers such as Bill Gaither himself, David Phelps, Michael English, Russ Taff, Todd Suttles and Adam Crabb just to name a few, in this podcast he tells us how he landed the job with this amazing group. Wes now tours America and the world witnessing and singing praises to our God. It is my honor to have Wes Hampton as part of The A Side.
Matt A and Matt C have quite an insightful conversation with meteorologist James Spann. They talk candidly about his early days in radio/TV with Matt Coulter through his current role in youth church with Matt Allen, why does Matty A call him coach and how about James’ first Alabama football game? All questions answered and a WHOLE lot more, listen up!
Matty A thinks it’s funny to see if any bar in America still serves Zima. What was in it? Matty C never had one. Meanwhile Super Bowl LI is on between the Falcs and Pats, both Matts pick Matty Ice but also wonder about the Roman numerals, L-I just doesn’t have quite the sophisticated look of say,….XXXVII, does it? Alabama quietly hired a new AD while AU’s offense has a new OC, listen up!
This weeks guest on “The A Side” is Paul Hornsby. He is a part of the history of Southern Rock. He was there at the beginning of Capricorn Records working with such artist as Duane and Greg Allman, Charlie Daniels, The Marshall Tucker Band, Elvin Bishop and Wet Willie just to name a few. Paul also produced some of Southern Rocks greatest hit songs like Fire On The Mountain, The South’s Gonna Do It Again and Long Haired Country Boy.
This may be the funniest show title we have posted. Understand, our shows are always mindful of good taste, unfortunately, Antonio Brown thinks differently. Matty A explains. The Packers won and Matty C is elated but still picks the Falcons. Matty A thinks the Steelers can pull off a major upset. GREAT insight into whether or not “icing” a kicker is effective.

Matty C picked Clemson and that was NOT popular. Why did Clemson win, though? The Matts break it down beyond the numbers. Matty A makes a great point about the Alabama kick offs. Matty C says the OC change was significant, why didn’t #3 and #13 get more touches? What is the future of these two coaches? This is pretty serious stuff.

What in the wide world of college football is going on with Lane Kiffin at Alabama? Matty C thinks it is creating such a distraction, coupled with Clemson’s 31-0 whitewashing of the Buckeyes to pick the Tigers. Matty A thinks much MUCH differently. What would have happened if Sean White had stayed healthy in the Sugar Bowl and this little piggy went to Belk,………first Matt n Matt of the year is a must listen.
