J.M. McSpadden III is a writer and roots music enthusiast who believes that every life needs to find its soundtrack, and every road trip is an opportunity to full tilt boogie.

He is grounded by the love of his wife, Suzanne, and their six children, all of whom have had to listen to their father ramble on and on about the merits of this song or that band until they finally said, "You need a blog!" He currently lives just outside Richmond, Virginia. And by the way, he also has a BFA in Creative Writing from University of North Carolina at Wilmington. So there.
