Episode 9 Interview with Jim Avett

Born in March of 1947 in central North Carolina, Jim Avett learned early the educational and entertainment value of storytelling. “I made an effort to write and remember core stories which became songs later in my life,” Jim says.

Interviewing Jim Avett was an absolute pleasure. A man who loves to tell and sing stories, his depth of knowledge about music and songwriting is invaluable. We talk about creativity, the music business, not taking things too personally, fortitude, and working hard.

While Jim’s sons, for those of you who don’t know, are Grammy-nominated artists The Avett Brothers (the “boys” to whom he refers in the interview), Jim is humble and an absolute diamond to the world of music. He believes songwriters should be true to themselves and share their stories. He says, “everyone is unique” and everyone has a story to tell.

Jim sings us his song, “The World Goes Round and Round.” And he’s right, there could be 100 songs in this one. We are so honored to have been able to talk with Jim and we hope you enjoy listening to this interview as much as we enjoyed doing it.
