624: How this Former World Series Champion Pitcher Became an Country Music Star | Brett Myers

About This Episode:

After 12 seasons playing Major League Baseball, Brett Myers retired to his Florida hometown to be with his family.

He won the World Series in 2008 with the Phillies in addition to spending time with the Astros and the White Sox.

What baseball fans didn't realize, is for years Myers had been playing guitar and writing songs in the off-season.

From the time he was a young boy, Myers always had a love for country, classic and hard rock. However, with his rigorous baseball schedule, he never had a chance to pursue songwriting in a serious manner.

One day while playing golf, he shared some ideas with his musician friend and producer Damien Starkey (Puddle of Mudd, Burn Season), who was blown away by his clever concepts. The two began collaborating and crafting songs in Starkey's studio. Before long, it was undeniable that they had a great chemistry and the songs to prove it. Since then, Brett has collaborated with several heavy hitters in the industry including Colt Ford, The LACS and Bottleneck.

In September of 2017 Brett released his 3rd album “Home Brewed”, a perfect blend of Southern Rock and Country anthems about drinking and life in the south. Myers has also been taking his show on the road with his band “The Backwoods Rebels.” This lineup includes former Shinedown and Fuel guitarist Jasin Todd, Puddle of Mudd guitarist and bassist Adam Latiff and Damien Starkey, Dylan Hess on drums and Zac Gilbert on slide.

With the great response that the shows and albums have received, it is apparent that Myers continues to grow his fan base in both the Country and Southern Rock markets.
