Between the Lines: Radney Foster

Country singer, songwriter, and author Radney Foster made his country debut as half of the duo Foster & Lloyd, racking in nine hit singles before launching a solo career in 1992. He has since written songs for the likes of Keith Urban and Hootie and the Blowfish, and he has collaborated with Americana legends like EmmyLou Harris and Sara Evans. After a brutal case of laryngitis and pneumonia stalled his ability to write songs in late 2015, Foster decided to try his hand at a different kind of storytelling: short fiction.
