Art and legacy come together on this week's episode of the Oklahoma Today podcast as musician Matt Axton stops by to talk about his Oklahoma connections, including his father, singer-songwriter and actor Hoyt Axton, and grandmother, Mae Boren Axton, who co-wrote the Elvis Presley hit "Heartbreak Hotel."

In October, Axton will play at the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame & Museum, where his father and grandmother were both inducted in 2007.
