For over a decade Nelson Emokpae has been making some of the happiest, most jubilant music you've ever heard. Sometimes with a full band, sometimes all by his lonesome, under the name Nelly's Echo he has been taking his chilled out sound and his powerful voice all over the country. Ned recently got the chance to sit down with Nelson and talk about, among other things, his non-traditional faith, musical conversations, and best practices for talking to women.

Industry Herb Christmas Special: Our Favorite Christmas Songs
This one was a lot of fun, BIG thanks to Nolan Hogenboom for being here and for his help on the production side of things. *the lil anecdote about the origin of August Burns Red's name has turned out to be a falsehood that the band apparently said in some interviews as a joke. We left it in there because it was funny. Also, we're abundantly delighted that nobody's dog actually got set on fire.

Top Ten Country Songs for People that Don't Like Country
You can take the music out of the country but you can't take the country out of the music. These are ten songs that we think pretty much anyone might like -- even if they aren't a country fan. We hope we don't offend anyone by saying that a Vampire Weekend song is Country.
