In our Season 4 finale, we’re going out with a bang as Chris sits down with 2x Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Natalie Hemby! A self-proclaimed “14-year overnight success”, Natalie gives us an inside look at her music journey - from the early days cutting her teeth as a demo singer and chasing the artist dream, to giving a Grammy acceptance speech for her group “The Highwomen” (while literally riding a roller coaster at Dollywood). Fast forward to getting her first record deal at age 44, and releasing her new sophomore solo album “Pins and Needles”, the 90s rock inspired record she’s been wanting to make since the start of it all. Listen on for an honest, funny, and insightful chat as Natalie reveals some of the worst songs she’s ever written, why you have to go out and live life in order to write the great ones, and in true Pitch List form, we discuss why it’s crucial to always come back to the heart and the love of music. Thanks for an incredible season, y’all!
