Brent Burns

Monday, Apr. 28, 2014

 Brent Burns was born in Seminole, Oklahoma, and moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 1958. While attending high school and Community college sports were important, but music was in his blood. Brent soon strapped on an electric guitar and was fronting a rock-n-roll band.

Life soon changed when he volunteered for service in Vietnam. Several months after entering combat, Brent was wounded and received the Purple Heart. After a three year recuperation in and out of military hospitals, he returned to his love of music and hit the road performing all over the United States. Later on he felt compelled to take a year off from music and hit the college lecture circuit. Offering honest, insightful, and a humorous look at life as a combat soldier, Brent was able to help others troubled with the effect of the war on their day to day lives.

Brent Burns is no stranger to notoriety.  In response to the oil shortages of the 1980s, Burns wrote the hit song, “Cheaper Crude or No More Food,” which sold 200,000 copies the first day it was released.   Paul Harvey played the song three times; the first and only song ever played in the program’s 35-year history.  Burns’ fame has continued with guest appearances on all three major networks, interviews on the BBC, and featured articles in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune andBillboard Magazine.

Brent also has the distinction of being the first entertainer to sing for American troops overseas since the tragedy of September 11th, 2001.  Besides his busy performance schedule, he continues to perform at benefits around the world, including for the National Underwater Marine Agency (NUMA) of Australia, the Phoenix Suns Night Hoops Program, American Cancer Society, and Habitat for Humanity, where Brent is building a house with proceeds from his latest CD, “Margarita Smile.”

Honeyboy and Boots

Tuesday, Apr. 29, 2014

 Drew Blackwell is from the Mississippi town of Macon. His mother is a gifted pianist and he and his sisters all have a ear for music and can sing!! He started learning his way around the guitar at the young age of fourteen, influenced by his Uncle Doug, and mentored and inspired to write and feel the blues by the great Willie King. 

King was a blues man born in Praire Point, MS. Drew along with his good friend and fellow artist Caleb Childs began The Old Memphis Kings in 2004. They have since continued to share the soul behind the blues king that brought them together.
 
Courtney grew up in Wa state and comes from a musically gifted family, at the age of three she was taught and began taking lessons in classical cello by Dr Wharton, a cello/bass professor at the University of Idaho. She would say her mother was most influential in her progressing in technic, tone and ear training. Practicing with her every day. 
In the past 4 years, since moving to the south. she has really focused on changing the way the cello is used in ensembles , now she prefers folk, blues, and bluegrass styles and has really refined her playing to allow herself to sing while performing.
 
They met at the Dave's Darkhorse Tavern in Starkville, MS. Drew's blues band played there quite often and Courtney played cello with a few different groups that played at the establishment. They quickly began dating and soon began playing together billing themselves as Honeyboy and Boots. Honeyboy is a nickname Drew received while singing the blues with the Old Memphis Kings and Boots is a nickname Courtney has had since she was young because she is always wearing them. Now married, they still make there home in Starkville.
 
Together they have a unique style that is all their own. This husband/wife, guitar/cello duo plays a blend of old blues and folk covers, country ballads, and originals that are straight from the heart. Americana, folk, alt country, blues, all these words describe their sound, which is always changing and growing.
 
They have been hired for weddings and receptions, play regularly in Starkville, Columbus, Jackson, and Birmingham, and recently in the past few months have played at the first annual Porchfest in Franklin Tn, Cumberland Country Music Festival in Cookville Tn, the Blue Plate Special in Knoxville Tn, and a New Year's Eve bash in Nashville! They are excited for many more opportunities this year. They enjoy the travel and adventure of a touring married duo!
