Go On, Call Him Junior! – Junior Brown

jrb4  If Junior’s voice got any deeper, your shoelaces would unravel. His playing has a twang that won’t quit, his guitar has two necks, while he has only one, and his songs reflect the irony and sweetness that’s possible in an age that refuses to grow up. He’s paid his dues in roadhouses, smoky bars, and under the bright lights.

Broke Down South Of Dallas

He is the lovechild of Ernest Tubb, Leroy Van Dyke, Roy Acuff, Johnny Bond, Dave Dudley, Minnie Pearl, Hank Thompson, and Patsy Cline. That’s a complicated background and, like all the important things in life, we only know part of the story.

About Ted Ringer

I am a writer, artist, and listener. Great music is everywhere and has no limits. Some of it is well-orchestrated and some is short and sweet. It can spring out of a moment of deep feeling or result from long periods of development. Music is communication, inspiration, and a million other things. This blog wants to share the wealth and keep toes tapping.
