Junior Brown On Mountain Stage

Mountain Stage
Junior Brown.

Junior Brown returns to Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va. Wielding his custom-made double-necked electric-guitar/steel-guitar hybrid known as the "guit-steel," Brown has been one of country music's wildest and most incendiary guitarists for several decades now. He's a gifted songwriter and singer, as well, with a rich baritone made for telling tales like "My Wife Thinks You're Dead" and "Broke Down South Of Dallas."

Brown's Mountain Stage set also features the first-ever recording of "Twenty Four Seven," a witty send-up of everything from text-message culture to vocal fry. He's backed by his own band, including wife Tanya Rae Brown on rhythm guitar, James Gwyn on drums and bassist Jon Penner.
