Additional Information

Husky Burnette (Chattanooga, TN)
The Blues are a religion and Brian "Husky" Burnette sho nuff preaches it. You can feel the testimony as he blends Mississippi Delta, Rock n Roll and Electric Blues. His music is gritty, soulful, southern, low-down and dirty. Husky, following in the family footsteps of rockabilly kings Johnny Burnette and Dorsey Burnette, has written and toured with several national artists over the years. Two of which that stand out are lead guitar for legendary singer/songwriter Roger Alan Wade and the supporting act on tour for Hank Williams III. He has shared the stage with many others such as Leon Russell, Guy Clark, T-Model Ford, Scott H. Biram, Emmylou Harris and The Legendary Shack Shakers.

In 2005, after leaving his road band, Husky Burnette set out to do his own thing, as a solo artist with a band behind him. He hit the road and toured the US, releasing the 3 track EP 'Snake Oil Salvation' on his own in 2007. In 2009, Husky won the FYI Awards 'Best Blues Band' award in Tennessee/Georgia. After joining up with record label Cracker Swamp Records, 2011 saw a huge step forward for Husky Burnette: the release of his first full length album entitled "Facedown In The Dirt" (named Album Of The Year by R/N/Z Magazine), the re-release of his 2007 EP "Snake Oil Salvation", and lastly, a guitar endorsement deal with Tampa, Florida’s Cigar City CBG’s company.

Husky can also be found on recordings by Polecat Boogie Revival (self-titled debut EP and Everybody Loves ANTiSEEN: A Tribute To The Boys From Brutalsville tribute album), an untitled EP by Roger Alan Wade and the latest effort by label-mate Olds Sleeper, “Plainspoken”, and slide guitar work in the film Anti-Horror (2005).

Husky now continues to tour nationally with a drummer backing him up to complete a raw two-man-band line-up, playing up to 200 shows a year. He is currently working on his follow-up EP to his full length, due out in 2012 on Cracker Swamp Records.
