He’s respected far and wide for his long career in songwriting and performing. He’s lived it and breathed it through lifetimes of country music passion and pain. Billy Don Burns started out in this business working with legends, and somewhere along the way he became one himself.

Billy Don Burns has traveled the world playing his music. He has performed his music on the Grand Ole Opry. He unseated his hero, Country Music Icon Johnny Cash, who had been number one for fourteen weeks on the Gavin Americana charts and received a letter of congratulations from the Man in Black when he did.

Producer Aaron Rodgers (SC native) has recorded this outlaw troubadour’s latest release on Rusty Knuckles Records, “Nights When I’m Sober: Portrait of a Honky Tonk Singer”.  He spent the early 80’s touring across North America and having Arkansas governor Bill Clinton proclaim March 27th, 1983, as Billy Don Burns Day.

10/9/8pm/$5 Indie Film, “Present” A PaperCookie Production

Posted on Aug.18, 2013

Daniel Crane (Nesey Gallons) is a semi-famous performance artist traveling and touring around the country, entertaining small enthralled audiences in the living rooms of houses with his awkward and sometimes alienating acts. On Halloween weekend, he finds himself with a few days off in Asheville, NC, staying with his kid sister, Dorothy (Faith Callaway) who works as a waitress at an old mom and pop Diner.

When a couple leaves a book at the Diner, Dorothy and Daniel decide to revisit the small town where they grew up. Along with Dorothy’s roommate Cassie (Mariana Templin), they set out on a trip to Mount Airy, NC, discovering the things they once remembered are vanishing, and realizing things they’ve kept inside themselves since childhood never go away.

Aug/23/8pm/$5 Mill Billy Blues, sold out arenas, coming to Gaffney

Posted on May.08, 2013

These guys are packing out large Listening rooms, Venues and Cultural Centers all over. They are being referred to as The Travelin’ Wilburys or The Highwaymen of the Piedmont. Four individual performers with a kinship spanning decades went into the studio on a whim and recorded a “down and dirty” blues and folk record. With all four having been raised in South Carolina mill towns or farm communities, their earliest influences were “front porch pickers”, playing Piedmont style blue​s, country, gospel and folk music.

They honed their musical styles over time and have become what some consider four of the cornerstones of the Upstate SC music scene. Folk Heritage Award winner singer/harmonica player Freddie Vanderford, regional bluesman Shane Pruitt and guitar whiz Brandon Turner make up the all acoustic group known as Mill Billy Blues.

9/21/8pm/$5 Justin McCorkle Band

Posted on May.08, 2013

Justin McCorkle, the only son of Marshall Tucker Band founding member George McCorkle, feels he was put here to play music and to bring that feeling that only a real song can bring to music fans. Justin has shared the stage with many stars of all types, from multiple Grammy winning members of The Zac Brown Band to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members, to Southern Rock legends. As a singer/songwriter and publishing company owner he has worked with and been groomed for success by some of the best of the business from Nashville, TN to Los Angeles, CA.

McCorkle is the lead guitar player for The Southern Boys Band from Birmingham, AL. When this band decided to take a step back from music professionally, McCorkle decided to get back to his roots. He was approached by Garage Door and Super Spin Records. When this record deal opportunity knocked, McCorkle opened the door. With a new recording project and tour dates on the horizon to support the new record, McCorkle needed a band. Not just any band, but a band that would bring the vision to life.

This band is Rock, Country, Blues, R&B, Southern Rock, you name it, the influence is there. This comes by no other means than its members.

Alison Turner Watson, a Converse College graduate and board certified music therapist, brings flute and keys to the mix. Her soulful, yet controllably delivered vocals mesh right in. Her flute brings a totally different dynamic to the sound and keys round out the band’s production.

JJ Guerrieri brings his monster slide guitar that is in your face and something that is not easily forgotten. Guerrieri also shares the lead and rhythm duties with Justin. He has been a staple of the Spartanburg SC music scene for quite some time now and for good reason. He’s an incredibly versatile guitar player that excels at any genre of music.

Michael Johnson’s percussion style is certainly his own. Derived from metal and grunge influences Johnson has no problem falling back to the fundamentals of any style making him beyond versatile. Johnson is just as at home playing the blues as he is metal or country. For good reason, Johnson has been at the music scene for a number of years now and could be one of Spartanburg’s best kept secrets.

Michael Wilkerson, originally from Charlotte, NC, stays in the driver’s seat of this band with his smoky bottom end bass lines. Wilkerson is a blues fanatic and has a heart for soulful music in general. Being a grunge influenced bass player his style transitions quite well with some very innovative impressions on the overall sound.

Lastly Justin McCorkle brings the lead vocals as well as rhythm and lead guitar. McCorkle being a versed musician and in the music business literally all his life brings the ziplock to the sandwich bag for this band.

In a time of less and less recreation for everyone they bring a breath of fresh air-that feeling that only a performance from the heart and soul can deliver. The music is just a downright good time and a great feeling. Don’t take my word for it, see for yourself!
