The Back Forty: Tony Brown – Part 1
KixBrooks Radio | February 20, 2020
Tony Brown was the man sitting in the producer’s chair for Brooks & Dunn’s “Believe,” Trisha Yearwood’s “How Do I Live,” and just about every hit from George Strait, Reba McEntire, and Vince Gill in the ’90s. In his role as a producer and record label executive, Tony helped craft that ’90s country sound that is so revered today by fans and artists alike. In 2018, Tony chronicled his 40-plus year career in his book Elvis, Strait, to Jesus, which covers his work with the acts mentioned above as well as his time as a musician with Emmylou Harris and the King – Elvis Presley.
Recently, Tony stopped by the studio to catch up with Kix. The pair reflect on some cherished times from Music Row’s past. They also discuss today’s shift in songwriting and a song’s impact versus chart success. Plus, Tony shares his current work with EmiSunshine, Drake Milligan, and Gary Allan.
