A change of location from Cincinnati to the Galveston area has served as an organic songwriting catalyst for Cawood, who recently released an album which pays homage to her family's Appalachian roots. She spoke with Notably Texan on August 31st about finding a welcome home in The Lone Star, the inspiration for her album Bullet In The Cabin Wall, and her Hope Loves Harmony project which benefits families affected by substance abuse.

You can hear periodic interviews with voices behind the music of Texas during KETR's Notably Texan, weekdays from 11 to 2.
