Sean of the South’s Podcast Features The Pressley Girls

The Pressley Girls Band

Sean Dietrich writes about his life in the South. He also hosts a weekly podcast. Here’s the text from his about page:

“Sean Dietrich is a columnist, and novelist, and podcast host, known for his commentary on life in the American South. His work has appeared in Newsweek, Southern Living, Garden and Gun, The Tallahassee Democrat, Good Grit, South Magazine, Alabama Living, The Birmingham News, Thom Magazine, The Mobile Press Register, he has authored nine books, and is the creator of the Sean of the South blog and podcast.”

An Appalachian blogger friend introduced me to Sean’s writing about a year ago and I’ve been reading his stuff ever since.

A while back he contacted the girls about their music, turns out he’s a fan of theirs. A little bit of back and forth happened and before we knew it he invited them to be on one of his podcasts.

The show aired last weekend. You can go here to hear it for yourself. We’re still thrilled about being included on the show.

    I read everybody’s comment and I didn’t have my glasses on. I tried to comment on Sean’s podcast, but it wouldn’t let me Post so I’ll do it here. Sean is a great Storyteller, and I Love the Pressley Girls and Family…You and Paul could pass for Chitter and Chatter’s Sister and Brother. Anyway, you all are Great, and I especially liked the first song about Brasstown, that Katie wrote. …Ken

    Loved listening to the podcast, y”all did so great on every song … , want to go back and have a listen to some of His older podcast too ….. it’s a hot outside September Sunday, and we are beginning to need and long for a good soaking rain, complete with thunder and sitting out on the porch swing with a nice cup of coffee, ….. yet so many reasons to be thankful .

    I thoroughly enjoyed that Podcast. The music was excellent as always and Sean’s story had me laughing and thinking back to the mischief of my boyhood on the banks of the Yadkin River.

    You could never tell that you’all are all sisters and a brother from the Wilson Family. The Pressley Girls and Matt have to be Proud. I hope you all had a good time at the Indian Center and Mountain Heritage Centers yesterday. Wish I could have been there, Sean seems like a real good friend. …Ken

    Good performance by the Pressley Family and Sean reminded me somewhat of Jerry Clower. Funny.
