In this episode, singer/songwriter Kendell Marvel brings a little honky tonk to the studio. Kendell shares a brilliant father-son story in which his daddy warns him about singing with the crazy talented Chris Stapleton. The two have written over 60 songs together. Kendell's old man and biggest fan told him, "You sounded awesome but you might want to be careful with who you bring home and not bring somebody that good." Kendell laughed and said if it had been any other songwriter he might have been upset, but he couldn't agree with his dad more.
