Hey there, cowpokes, and welcome back to Rainbow Rodeo! This month, I speak with veteran Maia Sharpe about her album <em>Reckless Thoughts</em>, which came out in August. I also interviewed her for the Nashville Scene. In that interview, we discussed the divorce that caused her to move to Nashville and how she brought together a trusted band to create <em>Reckless Thoughts</em> and her previous album, <em>Mercy Rising</em>. The part of the conversation you’ll hear is from when we were already 30 minutes in and switching gears for podcast mode. Maia had mentioned joining a softball league in Nashville, so we had to kick things off by discussing it, naturally.
