From his origins as an extremely respected songwriter and performer in Nashville in the early 70s to his current stance as an indelible icon to a younger generation of "outlaw" country artists, this one-man force of nature continues to defy the odds by being relevant and rebellious for some 50 years in the country music world. Billy Don Burns rubbed shoulders and crossed paths in different ways with many of the greats in real country music, including Haggard, Willie, Waylon, Cash, Kristofferson and Johnny Paycheck, just to name a few. His bio describes him as a "true country music warrior" who "wears his battle scars with honor, depicting the stories of his life in his songs with brutal and beautiful honesty," and no one could describe BDB much better than that. Joining Billy Don on stage is Angela Norris White, an accomplished Americana-style, classic country, singing songwriter who gives "Mama" first spot on influences before adding famous female folks like Dolly, Loretta, Lacy Tanya, Lucinda and Emmy Lou.
