This what Billy Don Burns said about Richard Burnett 

Richard is a great guy. He book me and him in serveral clubs up in North West Arkansas. We had a great time playing music and became brothers of the road. He is a good boy and one hell of a guitar and dobro player, songwriter and singer. Thanks again Little Brother we are friends for life, BDB 

Would like to personally thank Peter Read of Night Flying Magazine for sending us to SXSW as Pope County Bootleggers 

Joining the crew as the one of a kind most respected musicians in my opinion are Butch Taylor Bass Guitar, and Phillip Eubanks Drums and Guitar. Pretty much Phillip and Butch are the reasons I know so much about music.
