(Denver, CO) Country music fans now have a new way to get to know their favorite artists as Flying Penguin Productions today announced the launch of the “Behind the Rose” podcast series.

“Behind the Rose” is hosted and produced by long-time country radio Program Director and talent Eddie Haskell in partnership with Executive Producer Nate Lundy, whose Flying Penguin Productions is overseeing the distribution and sales efforts.

“ Country artists are the best storytellers, “ said Haskell. “I look forward to sharing those stories that go beyond the three minute radio interview. Playing the Grizzly Rose is a rite of passage and nearly every country star has or will. Our goal is to talk to them all – Behind the Rose.”

Based on a concept created by Lundy, the podcast series is designed to go beyond the typical radio interview with artists and provide a more intimate, in depth, extended conversation that allows fans to truly get to know their favorite artists.

“There is so much more to each of these artists than we can discover in just a three minute song or a quick sound bite on a radio show,” said Lundy. “What Eddie and I wanted to created was something that allowed fans to really get to know the artists including the stories of their lives and their songs.”

Opened in 1989, The Grizzly Rose has long been considered one of the great honky tonks in the world. The 40,000 square foot venue has hosted some of the biggest names in country music, including Garth Brooks, Chris Ledoux, Blake Shelton, Willie Nelson, Faith Hill, Taylor Swift, Waylon Jennings and countless others.

“I am thrilled that music fans will get a chance to experience the stories from ‘Behind the Rose’,” said Grizzly Rose owner Scott Durland. “Eddie and Nate are the perfect partners for us and we’re excited to give fans locally and around the country this exclusive access to their favorite signers and bands.”

“Behind the Rose” has launched with three initial episodes, including Chase Bryant, Eli Young Band, and Kelsea Ballerini. Fans can find the podcast on iTunes,, and
