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.

New Single "Lonesome, On'ry and Mean" written by Steve Young (originally performed by Waylon Jennings) is headed to radio! Is your favorite station playing it? If not, let's make it happen!


 1.  Big City has logged more time honky tonkin' than flying airplanes
 2.  Big City gets paid more to fly airplanes than to honky tonk (together, we can change that)
 3.  Big City has been a pro pilot for over 16 years - instructing, photo flights for news crews, corporate flying and airline flying
 4.  Big City's first singing gig was at church
 5.  Big City attracted his wife performing his very first country music gig at a wake
 6.  Big City can juggle (not just 2 careers)
 7.  Big City was on a Navy ROTC scholarship at Auburn University (until Bill Clinton decided we didn't need a military)
 8.  Big City taught himself to play guitar (which is part of the problem)
 9.  Big City only writes songs about real life (I'm not just trying to sell you something, but tell you something)
10. Big City was country when country wasn't cool

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

"Big City Brian Wright is at his best on country ballards where his vocals recall Conway Twitty.  The album "Honkytonkitis" is a promising debut." 
Country Standard Time

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!
