Decades Active: 1990s


25 July 1965, Owensboro, Kentucky, USA. The 90s country singer Marty Brown is a hillbilly and proud of it, saying, ‘I went to New York City once and I felt I ought to have a passport.’ On record he sounds like Hank Williams, while Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers are also strong influences. Marty Brown arrived in Nashville with a demo tape and accosted Barry Beckett with the words: ‘I know you, I’ve seen you in a video.’ He visited a succession of shopping malls for a promotional tour, driving to each of them in a 1969 Cadillac. The third album, Cryin’, Lovin’, Leavin’, features guest appearances from Melba Montgomery and Joy Lynn White, but, despite being a good writer, he has still to have a substantial country hit. He was signed to the Californian Hightone label in 1996, releasing the highly accessible Here’s To The Honky Tonks.
