Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cory Branan is an American singer-songwriter who was born in Southaven, Mississippi. Cory Branan was surrounded by music from an early age. His father, Dallas Branan, was a jet mechanic and a local drummer. In his early 20's he began to explore the music of John Prine; a move which urged him to pick up a guitar and start writing songs. In 2000, the Memphis chapter of NARAS awarded Branan with the Phillips Award for Newcomer of the Year (he didn't even have a recording contract yet). Two years later, Branan made his label debut with Memphis's Madjack Records with the release of The Hell You Say to critical acclaim. Rolling Stone said about his songwriting, "There's a new breed of singer-songwriter... Ryan Adams, Conor Oberst, and now Cory Branan." This prompted Billboard to write, "He was recently featured in Rolling Stone's HotList, but don't hold that against him... songwriting prodigy gives John Prine a run for his money."show more
