Will You Ever Hear a Brent Ryan “Protest Song”?

Posted on September 13, 2019 in americana, country music, history, music, Music Business, Musical Events, Musical Inspiration, Opinions, Stories Behind Songs

I'll tell you as a disclaimer right now that I vowed to myself that in my musical career I would never get political.  My reasoning is twofold.

Alongside the exploding Texas music scene comes money. And when money gets big, a gold-rush of money chasers follow suit.  When that happens, the sincerity of organic songwriters with a unique voice can get left behind, lost in the crowd of screaming college kids that worship a supposed unique "Texas Country" performer who is really only regenerating a 1990's sound, and brag about how rebellious it all is simply because it isn't Nashville.  Continue Reading…
