Jackson native Travis Meadows is a complicated man. He’s survived cancer, addiction and a stint as preacher of the Gospel. He has known great loss and suffering — he recently watched his girlfriend battle cancer and he lost his companion, a three-legged dog.

“He taught me so much, man,” Meadows said in his slow southern drawl. “I learned so much from that guy.”

But through it all, Meadows has always been a songwriter. His 2010 album “Killin’ Uncle Buzzy” caught the attention of the likes of Eric Church and Jake Owen.

On Friday, Oct. 13, Meadows released his latest album “First Cigarette,” which has drawn much critical acclaim from “Rolling Stone” and other national media outlets.

Travis Meadows is today’s guest on the #ClarkCast Podcast.
