For this installment of the Here & Now‘s DJ Sessions, host Jeremy Hobson speaks with Marcia Campbell of the show “The WSM All Nighter” on WSM 650 AM in Nashville for a look at the latest rising stars in country music.

It’s a listening tour of ’90s-inspired singer-songwriter Cam of San Francisco and blue collar Chris Janson of Perryville, Mo. We also hear music from up-and-comers Hailey Whitters and Mo Pitney.
