Times is hard, and pleasures are few in 2016. The economy is in the tank; politicians are bickering with one another; and it’s easier to find an albino alligator than a job in the south. But, as the old adage goes: You gotta suffer to sing the blues. Brian ‘Husky’ Burnette’s gritty southern style of blues conjures the spirit of folks who had a rough day meeting at the juke joint to blow off some steam.
Husky’s tour brought him thru Beckley in December, so we asked him to drop by Kid In The Background to shoot a new episode for the Prince Street Sessions. Turns out he’s been hard at work on a new LP for the Rusty Knuckles label, “Ain’t Nothin’ But A Revival”, and was willing to give KITB an exclusive acoustic version of “Kick Rocks”.
Husky Burnette’s new LP will feature heavy hitters such as Andy Gibson (Hank Williams III), Col JD Wilkes (Legendary Shack Shakers/JD Wilkes & the Dirt Daubers) and more.
