How Junior Brown Beat Out Jerry Reed to Narrate the Dukes of Hazzard

With his handmade "guit-steel" guitar and deep, country drawl, Junior Brown makes a hell of an impression. Over the course of four decades, Brown has taken his blues-inspired honky tonk across the nation and around the world, thrilling fans of honest and well crafted roots music. In truth, Brown is one of a very select group of artists who has as great instrumental skills as he does songwriting chops.

Speaking from a tour stop in Canada and in anticipation of playing Saturday night at the Kessler Theater, Brown spoke with DC9 about playing with Bob Dylan, narrating The Dukes of Hazzard and scoring Spongebob Squarepants.
