The road of most musical careers doesn't include both medicine and math in the (ahem) equation, especially when it produces a wonderfully skewed country album. While studying math at Brown University, singer/songwriter Dougie Poole forwent a doctor's life to follow his passion for music. Replacing what's expected for exploration in less reliable waters is the norm for him. The title of his full-length debut, Wideass Highway is perhaps the ﬁrst clue; the music within is the second. It's country music that bears a closer resemblance to '70s countrypolitan than today's bro-country. Dougie's lyrics don't even hint at pick-ups or parties but instead allow for laptops and the Port Authority as some of the subject matter. Wideass Highway is the greatest of joys--unexpected--because no saw it coming that one of the best contemporary country albums would be delivered by a Brooklynite reared in Providence, RI. [This episode features "Tripping with the One You Love" and "Less Young but as Dumb" from Wideass Highway in their entirety.)

It would be greatly appreciated if you would take a moment to ﬁll out this brief demographic survey. It will be used solely to help me select advertisers/sponsors for Talk Music Talk to offset the cost to produce the podcast i.e. audio editor, podcast host, traveling to guests to record. It should take less than a minute of your time. Thanks! http://www.talkmusictalk.com/survey
