Brandon Jenkins’ Has “Magical” Time In Nashville,
Performs Songs from Upcoming Blue Bandana
Tennessee — In his performance to a standing room only crowd last week
at Nashville hotspot Acme Feed & Seed, Red Dirt Legend Brandon Jenkins played songs from his upcoming new release, Blue Bandana, and two of his songs that will appear on the forthcoming new release from fellow red dirt artist Stoney LaRue.
Appearing with just his guitar, the burly singer captivated his audience with songs from his new Blue Bandana, including “Black Mood Ring,” “Under the Shadow of the Refinery,” “Send Down an Angel,” and the title track.
“I got in town Sunday night, and was able to experience something that
is so Nashville while I was here,” he said. “Over three days, I wrote
with seven different songwriters. The creative energy was tremendous. It
He also performed two songs from pal Stoney LaRue’s forthcoming album,
Us Time. Jenkins’ songs, “Feet Don’t Touch The Ground” and “Til The
Morning Comes,” have become standards in LaRue’s recent live shows.
Jenkins’ Blue Bandana was recorded over a two day period at
producer Dave Percefull’s Yellow Dog studio in Wimberley, Texas. The
album is comprised of raw, unfiltered tracks and mixes that reflect
Jenkins’ unflinching songs and signature vocal, leaving the scars not
many artists are prepared to expose when recording.
The final product is perhaps his finest to date and gives his fans and
newly exposed listeners a unique experience of hearing an album that has
been recorded with a live performance attitude capturing the emotion of
the artist in his unrestrained creative nature with the flaws and
mistakes others try to hide.
Known as the “Red Dirt Legend” by his fans and the Red Dirt / Texas
Music community, Jenkins is known for his unique songwriting style and
musicianship. Throughout his 20 + year music career he has been a
mainstay on festival and listening rooms stages throughout the US and
Europe, had multiple hits on the influential Texas Music Radio Charts
and written hits for others.
Beginning his career as a fresh-faced kid in his hometown of Tulsa,
Oklahoma in 1994 to being the bearded, tattooed man currently residing
Austin, Texas, Jenkins has never strayed from writing and singing songs
filled with honesty, soul, emotion, and never shied away from facing his
own demons when composing songs for himself and others.
Penning Red Dirt classics like the hard edged “Finger On The Trigger”
to one of the most played and requested love songs “My Feet Don’t Touch
The Ground” are testimonies to his diverse songwriting capabilities and
