Episode 421: Jeff Pardo and What Could Have Happened at the Doves?(!)

My good friend and incredible songwriter and record producer, Jeff Pardo is on the podcast today in a very special episode of That Sounds Fun! Jeff is ridiculously talented and was nominated for the most Dove Awards of the year. He graciously popped into the studio both BEFORE and AFTER the Dove Awards show to talk about how he felt and what he was processing before the night of the award show and how he felt after the results were in. No spoilers here, because y’all get to hear me find out the results LIVE on this episode!
