Angaleena Presley is our guest Tuesday, April 25 from 5 to 6 p.m. on WMOT's Wired In.
Angaleena Presley is one of the most intelligent and socially observant songwriters in today’s neo-classic country branch of the Americana movement. The rural Kentucky native draws from her upbringing and the true stories of a troubled region to create songs in the tradition of Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton. “I’m a feminist who fights with love, a kill ‘em with kindness person – but also a kill ‘em with honesty,” she says in her official bio. “ The most powerful weapon we have is honesty and vulnerability: showing your weakness and your truth is the greatest weapon we have.”
Wired In offers audiences worldwide a chance to sit in on intimate shows and interviews hosted by WMOT Program Director Jessie Scott. The show’s guest artists are leading lights in roots and Americana music, pulled from the playlist of WMOT, an 100,000 watt roots/Americana radio station serving Nashville and Middle Tennessee from the College of Media and Entertainment at Middle Tennessee State University. The shows so far have featured banjo great Bela Fleck and Yep Rock recording artists The Stray Birds.
