Newcomer Brian Milson Opening Act at Taste of Country Christmas Tour [VIDEO]
The Taste of Country Christmas Tour is coming next Saturday, Nov. 23 to Shooters. Kicker 102.5 and Matt Lovelis Crosslander is proud to present Thomas Rhett with special guest Brian Milson.
Odessa, Texas born singer Brian Milson who in his very young career has already opened for Joe Nichols, Easton Corbin and Neal McCoy, and his idol Willie Nelson. Brian hails from the West Texas town that gave the world “Friday Night Lights,” about Permian High School, the town’s football powerhouse and the emergence of what football is like in the state of Texas. Brian played for a year, but baseball and golf were his sports. But it was actually his love of music that strayed him to go into a different direction.
Brian’s breakthrough single, “Nothing Grows In Shadows,” not only establishes him as a singer to be reckoned with, it makes a powerful and compelling statement about a genuine social issue going on in this country - bullying. Brian said, "On any given day, kids just stay home out of a fear of bullying. And 85 percent of the time, there’s no intervention. This is a song that addresses that.” Brian says he was also a victim of bullying growing up so he can relate to the lyrics of this song.
“Nothing Grows in Shadows” gives country music fans their first taste of an album Brian cut in Nashville with one of the all-time great producers, James Stroud who produced (Toby Keith, Willie Nelson, Tim McGraw, Chris Young).
Brian began playing house parties during his freshman year at Texas Tech. He was majoring in music and learning theory but,” he says, “I was always trying to learn the new Strait and Garth songs.” Brian has toured throughout the Southwest with his band and done acoustic shows across the country, introducing himself and his music to fans and radio stations alike.
Now, with the release of “Nothing Grows In Shadows,” all that education and experience has come together. For the young man from Odessa, the journey is just beginning.
