HUGE DISCLAIMER!!!!!!!! We are not Country experts!! While we did have a lot of fun making this episode we are clearly not the authority on all things country. Hopefully there are a few picks in here that don't make you cringe.

Ep. 16- Desert Island Songs
As per normal Grant's list doesn't make any sense whatsoever. Ryan try to explain to Grant the joys of living at a slower pace. Grant can't keep from running around with his hair on fire. So yeah, pretty normal show.

Ep. 8- Guilty Pleasures
Not to be outdone by Grant, Ryan comes up with a terrible list idea!!!!! Guilty pleasures is exactly what it sounds like.
