Paul Cauthen Interview by Christian Lamitschka for Country Music News International Magazine & Radio Show

Lamitschka:  How was the last year for you? What were your
highlights?

Answer:  Last year was great,
I got to play Red Rocks and the
Grand Ole Opry a couple times. I
also got to travel further than I ever have into Europe. My music is spreading,
and thats exciting.



Lamitschka:  How did you choose the title for the CD?  Is
there a story behind the name?

Answer:  I lived in Room 41 at the Belmont Hotel in Dallas, Texas
for two years. I wrote most of my songs for my next record there. It made the name choice pretty
easy.



Lamitschka:  Do you write the songs yourself? If not, how do you go
about finding the songs for your CD?

Answer:  I write most of my songs myself with the help of a few
core songwriters here in Dallas.

On this record specifically, I worked with Jason Burt, Beau Bedford
& Wesley Geiger.



Lamitschka:  What is the difference between your last CD and your
current one?

Answer:  This next record shows an organic evolution within my own
sound. Have Mercy was a lot of the leftover material that I worked on for My
Gospel. With Room 41, we tried to
break down barriers and create something new.



Lamitschka:  What inspired you to become a songwriter?

Answer:  My Grandad, he would write extra verses to Gospel songs and sing them on Sundays during Church of
Christ services. I remember his yellow legal pad that he’d keep all his extra verses on.



Lamitschka:  What drives you?

Answer:  The love of a good woman, the search of a great song, the
peace of a still river and the smoke of a smooth bong.



Lamitschka:  What’s unique about you that will differentiate you
from other artists?

Answer:  I write songs that have true meaning to me. That come from
the heart.

Most songs that make the most money this day and age are written around
a circle coffee table in a premeditated and formulated fashion. Can’t hate on
them though, their boats and trucks are real nice.



Lamitschka:  What has been your greatest challenge in music
business?

Answer: The slow burn.

 Lamitschka:  When you get time off, how do you like to relax?

Answer:  I really like to golf
in my downtime. Ive found it be the
best way to turn my brain off, blow off some steam and take a break from the
noise.



Lamitschka:  Is there any place you haven’t played that you would
like to?

Answer:  Sydney Opera House, The Gorge and  Wimbley
Stadium
