His advice, which even those who don't tour will find valuable, touches on communication strategies, mutual support and accountability, self-awareness and boundaries, how to include your family in your life, and more.

Kenny Barnwell joins Andy in Episode 245 to discuss how to nurture and maintain healthy relationships while working away from home.

Subjects they touch on include managing work schedules, setting shared goals and priorities, developing trust and confidence, and so much more, as well as the importance of maintaining physical and mental health on and off tour.
