Earl Brown on Meridian Part 4 - Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top
By Tracy Ross
Murray, KY – Country, Bluegrass, Gospel, Blues -- the origin or influence of a tune doesn't matter to the Sacred Cowboys, as long as it is played with heart, passion, and usually with loud guitars. Sometimes a song calls for pedal steel, piano, mandolin, banjo, autoharp, or fiddle. If that is the case, Sacred Cowboys are not reigned in by genre limitations. They use whatever is necessary to reach the heart of a song, be it one of their own or one of their carefully selected cover tunes.
Murray native, W. Earl Brown talk to Tracy Ross about playing with one of his heroes, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top.
