An accomplished musician, yet as country as country can be, native Mississippian Britt Gully captures your attention in his unique Southern way. Gully’s musical talent is enhanced through his masterful storytelling as he shares with his audience a wealth of facts, anecdotes and just plain good stories featuring the successes and heartaches of Jimmie Rodgers, “The Father of Country Music.” Gully grew up listening to Jimmie Rodgers music at the feet of his father, who not only taught him to play the guitar but also instilled in him a deep respect for the land, music and the people who make it. “Genuine” is the perfect word for Britt and his homespun way, weaving his love for the songs, the romances, the drama and history into a musical performance that grips your heart, inspires you to “go back in time to the glory days of the railroads, struggles of the Depression and the birth of country music.” His portrayal of The Singing Brakeman includes Jimmie’s songs, stories, his dapper dress and “significant contributions to the development of American Music.” He will mesmerize you with his guitar and his “blue yodel,” teaching you all about a Mississippi music icon.
