Big City Brian Wright's debut album "Honkytonkitis" is a collection of real songs about real life the way country music was intended. It "fills the shoes of country traditionalists while the rest of the genre strays barefoot."

The World's First Singing Pilot

Welcome aboard!

  Welcome to my home on the interweb!  It's true.  They'll let anybody in here.  I've been around music my whole life.  I'm no pro and I'm not chasing anybody's idea of a dream, but country music has always been a passion of mine.  I don't make music to get paid.  I write when I wanna write and record when I can afford.  Over the years the songs add up, and I wanted to have something to pass along, in case I do first.  

  But, instead of creating album after album, I've decided to start releasing single songs.  They will be available here only and as often as I can crank 'em out.  The recordings will be studio quality made by me and my band, a group of A-List pickers here in Music City, at Oceanway Studio.  That means no MP3, iTunes, shitty lifeless downloads like you're used to buying.  This is as good as it gets for a digital download.  I may not compete talent-wise, but I will give you the best available. 

  Remember's gonna be country, it's gonna be real songs and it's gonna be as good a quality as I can give you.  You're gonna laugh, you might cry, but I'll keep ya drinkin' 'em dry.

  Don't forget!  Check back in on the 1st of every month and see what's new!  If you would like a reminder, please sign up for the Mile High Club and I'll make sure the soundtrack of your life ain't boring.

Professional Reviews

Brian Wright writes, and that’s a good thing. 
He writes out of inspiration, not obligation, and never out of commercial consideration. 
He believes in country music, and that belief shines through in every line. 
And then he sings it, and that’s even better. 

-Peter Cooper

Professional entertainment reporter, JIMMY CARTER, on "all things country + everything else"  says about "Summertime"...

Newest Single from upcoming album "Honkytonkits" 

New single, "Lonesome, On'ry and Mean" hits radio today!  

Big City Brian Wright's latest single celebrates the legacy of Waylon Jennings and pays homage to his contribution that forever changed the course of country music.  

"Everybody remembers "outlaw."  I didn't see that at all.  I saw a guy living a roll and roll lifestyle.  He got wrapped up in the cycle of gettin' up to perform night after night and gettin' down because you have to.  What he did was put his foot down and make the music he wanted to make and go in a direction that no one had gone before.  I'd call that a "visionary."  A rock star that eventually grew up into a gentleman.  You could say the same about George Jones, Cash, Nelson, any of them.  Except Merle, he actually was an outlaw."  by BCBW

Let me know your station and let's get this played!

Spring is in the air but "Summertime" is a comin'! 

  I think we can all agree across this country that this was the coldest winter in a long time.  We've been cooped up, pent up and deprived of all the things that Americans love to do.  Barbecuing, sitting outside, listening to nice background music and watching the kids stretch their legs in the yard, all the while sipping on your favorite drink and catching up with the ones you care about is what we do.  
  Watching white smoke seeping from the top of my Big Green Egg, let alone the smell, is enough to make me forget about everything that was on my mind a few hours earlier.  Or try sipping a homebrew that you made and having it be one of the best beers to hit your pallet?  Or maybe you just completed some renovations to your place or just manicured the lawn.  Those few moments to reflect and enjoy a sense of pride is what I live for.  And for me, every now and then, the wife and kids will want to hear music I created.  It's another creation that I made possible that adds to the fabric of our personalities and who we are.  
  It's that time of year folks.  Put down the remote, keypad, mouse and get yourself out of doors!  Get some fresh air, grab a chair and whatever gets you feelin' right and celebrate whatever is yours!  "It don't cost much and it sure is fine, like a big watermelon hangin' on the vine" ("Summertime" song by BigCity)

"Summertime" the song is comin' in May!  Be on the lookout.  For sale here and everywhere soon!  Official video to follow.

Listen up for music and good times!

As promised, I'm doing "Behind the Music" style info for the Mile High Club Members.  I always get questions about the creative process.  It's stuff that as an insider, I guess I kind of start to assume that everybody knows.  But, I've been around this process for a long time.  So, to answer your questions, you'll have to be a Migh Club Member, if you're not already.  It's free, safe and I don't spam.  And I hope it will answer your questions and give you an inside view "Behind the Music."  
You'll get to listen and vote for my next record!
