Ep 9 - Harry Connick Jr.: Love, Loss and Finding Your Calling
Harry Connick, Jr. sits down with Paula to talk about life and loss over the last year, the perspective he gained during the pandemic especially for women, and why he continues to ask himself if what he is doing is good enough. He opens up about what he calls his first cathartic moment with music while single-handedly creating his newest album, "Alone With My Faith." The child prodigy shares the struggles he faced in almost every subject but music, and the one thing that kept him grounded when people first started noticing his exceptional talents. He also opens up about the impact his mother had on his life, what it was like losing her at 13, and why his experience with loss during the pandemic has been so different. Harry talks about being a girl-dad and the love he has for his wife, whom he has been with for more than 30 years. He shares his secrets for maintaining a healthy marriage, how to quickly master music, and the best way to create the perfect piece of smoked-meat.
