In 2011, regular Scene/Cream contributor Jewly Hight filed a story on Foglesong for Nashville Public Radio. Here's a brief excerpt from her piece:
It didn’t hurt in the trust department that Foglesong had good instincts and recognized a risk worth taking. He was sure he heard one when a certain game-changing, fresh-faced Oklahoma songwriter auditioned in his office.
Foglesong remembers the tension in the air that day: “An executive on Music Row sitting around with other people that have heard about everybody, it’s a tough audience. And yet Garth right off the bat entertained us. The first song, practically the first phrase was a grabber. …I said, ‘I’ll Tell you what I think. I’m ready to sign that kid right now.’”
And sign the kid Foglesong did.
