“Me and my old friend Mack Vickery, R.I.P., were talking about the scars around my throat and chest caused from multiple stab wounds after I came off the stage one night in a honky-tonk. Mack said, “Let’s write a song about the life we have lived in honky tonks”. “No Shortage of the Blues” is what we came up with,” shared Billy Don Burns. “About a year before Mack died, they sent a limo from Alabama to Nashville to bring Mack down to induct him into the Alabama Music Hall of Fame. Mack asked me to go with him. Sam Phillips came down from Memphis to induct Mack into the prestigious association. When Mack introduced me to Sam Phillips, I said, “Mr. Phillips, it’s a real honor to meet you Sir.” The music icon, who signed the greatest roster of talent in the business, said to me, “Son, just call me Sam. Hell, Mack and I were both born poor white trash right down the road from here.” Mack’s star is between Lionel Richie and Percy Sledge.”
These recordings are a follow-up to Country Rewind Records previous releases of such greats as Conway Twitty, Waylon Jennings, Connie Smith, Jeannie C. Riley Rex Allen Sr., Carl Smith, Rex Allen Jr. and more which have all received great reviews by music critics worldwide.
Country Rewind Records has dedicated itself to bring classic country with this contemporary feel to not only the past country fans but also to the new country listeners by bringing unreleased traditional Country music into the contemporary Country era.
