GSUMC Concert Series continues in February
3-time Grammy winner joins Brent Burns on Feb. 12
A variety of star-studded concerts, including 3-time grammy-award winner Linda Davis with local favorite Brent Burns (pictured) are in store for area music lovers throughout February at Gulf Shores United Methodist Church. Lang Scott and Bill Whyte are also In The Round with Burns and Davis at the Feb. 12 show billed as “an intimate night of songs, stories & laughs.”
Eliciting laughter from audiences is a given when Burns takes is on his game. and this show will surely include Burns’ ode to his favorite demographic, “If It’s Snowbird Season, Why Can’t We Shoot ‘Em.”
In his Ray Stevens’ style, Burns weaves offbeat and colorful missives about everyday occurrences. His songs somehow seem funnier the more often you hear his hilarious musical yarns.
Orange Beach-Gulf Shores Tourism’s Official Musical Ambassador, Burns has even written and recorded a song, “Retired,” with Stevens.
Burns still continues a busy touring and local (Fin & Fork, LuLu’s, Big Beach Brewery) schedule, as he notes in his song, “I’ll Stop Singing When The Phone Stops Ringing.’’
Burns, a Vietnam Purple Heart recipient, puts his wry sense of humor to pen & paper with songs such as “Please Don’t Let That Kid Move Back Home,” “Trailer Park Sexy” and “Be My Baby Boomer Baby.’’
Davis and Rebe McEntire recorded a duet, “Does He Love You,” that went on to become a #1 hit and earn both artists a Grammy for Best Country Vocal Collaboration. Already in the Texas Music Hall of Fame, she’s played with Garth Brooks, George Strait and Kenny Rogers. Davis and her family were 2-time Grammy winners for their album, Hillary Scott & The Scott Family – Love Remains. The album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top Country Album’s chart.
