The two share some favorite tunes—by Dolly Parton, Aretha Franklin, Al Green, Barry White, Curtis Mayfield, and Rotary Connection—and discuss the impact the music has had on them in their lives, how it has helped them in difficult times. "Yola's music exists on the border of a few different genres—country, soul, even a little disco," says host Matthew Boll, "but her voice, that's what hits you. It's unforgettable.
