Host Gina Logue’s interview with Dylan Russell first aired June 27 on WMOT-FM Roots Radio 89.5 and You can listen to their conversation above.

Russell, who grew up in Savannah, Missouri, and lives in Nashville, gained attention in the country music field in 2014 with the song “Gravel Roads and Pastures” from the album “Keep Me in Mind.”

After a life-altering relationship, he said, he’s shifted to a kind of electronic pop in his new EP, “An Exhibit of My Mistakes.”WMOT Roots Radio-new logo-2017 web

“It’s not that anybody or anything pressured me to feel constrained (while) creating the first album,” said Russell.

“When you want to make it in the music industry as an artist, sometimes you see other people in the genre that you’re in, and a lot of them look the same.”
