#ThrowBackThursday: Willy Braun Talks GRAMMYS, MusicFest + More
Last year Reckless Kelly won a Grammy, not bad for the independent county / rock band based in Austin. Last week front man Willy Braun called in to the show and here’s what we learned:
- Thanks to Seven Nights in Ireland, many folks think RK is a Celtic Rock Band.
- Best moment at MuiscFest 2015 was more of a collection of moments: staying up playing late with Micky, Gary, Corb Lund, Matt Hillyer, Wade Bowen…
- Until All Nighter, on Cody Canada’s new album HippieLovePunk, it’d been over 20 years since the Brauns had all been in the studio together.
- His childhood family band, Muzzy and the Boys, was musical guest on The Tonight Show twice. Once with Carson, once with Leno.
- Reckless Kelly makes it a point to do things that encourage people to buy a physical of their albums, hence TWO Grammy nominations, and that win in packaging category.
