“Every now and then… in this day of cookie cutter auto-tuned singers… every now and then I get to hear a voice singing songs that remind me of why I fell in love with music… Billy Don Burns with Nights When I’m Sober – A Portrait of a Honky Tonk Singer did that for me this morning… It’s late afternoon now and I’m still being reminded… Thank you Billy Don.”

He’s respected far and wide for his long career in songwriting and performing, and he’s still out there. He’s lived it and breathed it through lifetimes of country music passion and pain. Carrying the guitar like a sword on his back, he battles for the Poet. He battles for the Artist. He battles for the souls who defy modern convention. And every time he strikes a chord in some smoke-filled Honky Tonk, he wins. Billy Don Burns started out in this business working with legends, and somewhere along the way he became one himself.
