What happens when one of the biggest country stars of all time decides to slap on a wispy wig and a soul patch and reinvent himself as a hard partying sex addict rock star with extensive reconstructive surgery? And this new persona has been meticulously crafted to serve as a background character in a movie that never even went into pre-production? And this hard partying rock star's music is all tepid acoustic soft rock? The project is buried, obscured, and forgotten for all eternity, that's what happens... until now! On this week's Make It Stop, Lisa McColgan of Bikini Whale swings by to talk about Chris Gaines, the ill-fated alter ego of country megastar Garth Brooks, and we try, with little success, to parse out exactly why the hell this confounding identity crisis even happened. So strap on your flavor saver and dive in with us.
