The husband-and-wife duo writes a song on the spot, given nothing but the title as a starting place.

In this episode of D’Addario’s #RawTalent, the improvisational song series where we ask artists to write a song on the spot, The Mastersons craft a gem out of the title “Truck Stop Sushi.” 

The Mastersons are the husband-and-wife duo of Chris Masterson and Eleanor Whitmore, who have released three albums of their own music, the latest being 2017's Transient Lullaby, aptly named given their incessant traveling schedule. They are also members of Steve Earle and The Dukes, who have just released a new album of Guy Clark songs.
