From a small smoky Appilachian town in West Virginia to the stage of the Grand Ol’ Opry in Nashville, TN Dick McVey has had quite a wild ride. Dick worked publicity for George Jones, worked with Loretta Lynn & her daughter Cissy, played with Little Jimmy Dickens, Nat Stuckey, Jean Shepard, Stonewall Jackson, Tom T. Hall, Holy Dunn, and many others. He is currently playing with and managing Travis Ledoyt (the best "Young Elvis"). He was gracious enough to sit down with the Sound Mind Podcast to share stories of managing publicity for George Jones, working with Loretta Lynn, playing bass with Little Jimmy Dickens for many years, and gracing the Opry stage over 500 times. This part 1 of a 2 part interview will really help you shape some context and expectations for seeking out a career in the music industry, and it’s a talk you don’t want to miss.
