Mark Burke is a singer-songwriter who thrives on writing the perfect song from the heart. Growing up in Florida, Mark is now a Nashville native who has a grueling schedule playing shows and songwriting. His hard work and “never give up” attitude reveal themselves strongly in this new single. A few months ago Mark released “Love Does” and now the highly anticipated “When It Comes To You” is scheduled for release on Oct. 8th, 2018.
This song makes up the essence of a great country song. It speaks of love straight from the heart. We spoke with Mark about the inspiration for the song. “This song stemmed from finally meeting somebody special and settling down because you know that you want to do all things with them. You realize that you would do anything for that person because the thought of life before them just didn’t make sense.”
Boy is he spot on! I was sitting in my truck listening to the song and it made me re-live the first moments I met my wife and brought back all those feelings and memories . I love a good love song and this has all the makings of a great one! Mark truly found his sound in this song. Lyrics like “If you wanted me to, there’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do, When It Comes To You” will make you think of that special someone who made you feel each word in the lyrics.
Mark Burke has a very unique sound that is all his own and makes him stand out from the crowd. The track is solid gold and the melody flows perfectly. I am so excited for Mark and can not wait for you to be able to purchase and stream this hit song on October 8th. Also, please go and follow Mark Burke at @markburkelive and follow him on this musical journey.
We had such a great time talking with Michael Hobby about A Thousand Horses. We discussed life on the road, Bridges EP, songwriting and also new projects. I definitely recommend seeing them in concert the next time they are in your town. The guys are some of the nicest people I have ever met. Enjoy…

As you may know I purchased a Vintage Dreadnought from MacMillan Guitars. The day I interviewed Marty MacMillan and heard the crisp clean sound of his guitars I was sold. We are going to take you a long the build process with pictures. The featured image is the material that will eventually become the amazing Vintage guitar. In the meantime we wanted to take you on a tour of how he makes each guitar. We hope you enjoy!!
I traveled up to Baltimore to sit down and talk with Jennifer and Trey who make up the duo Smithfield. We had an amazing chat about how they met to their inspirations in music. I met a gentleman who told me a story about how he had just met Jennifer and Trey on a plane from Nashville. He had a conversation with them as they were getting on the plane and when he got to his seat he looked them up. Mid flight he went and showed them that he had download all their music. Here is the best part, they caught up with him as the plane landed and arrange for him to come to the show. How cool is that!
I was very excited to see Smithfield live, I can tell you they did not disappoint. They opened the show with “We Make Our Own” and as soon as they started singing the crowd was pulled in. Their harmonies are some of the best I have ever heard. It is a true art to be able to sing almost as one person and they are truly amazing at it. Jennifer then went into a cover of “Slow Hands” and then crowd was singing every word. They even did a medley of 90’s music from Shania Twain to The Goo Goo Dolls. The way that Trey and Jennifer worked the crowd looked like they have been on a stage their entire lives. As they came to the end of the set they played “Hey Whiskey”. It was at this moment that I swear every cell phone was in the air and had the flashlight on. It made for an amazing backdrop. I truly recommend going and seeing Smithfield if they come to a venue near you. I am sure they will be household name in the country music world in 2018. They have so much potential, Jennifer and Trey are two of the nicest people in the world.
Please enjoy the interview and below you will find all the links so you can download and follow Smithfield on their musical journey!

I hopped in a Uber and headed from Nashville to Mt. Juliet, TN. I was so excited the entire ride to get to MacMillan Guitars and see their amazing shop. As I pulled up and walked in I felt like a kid at Christmas. Marty has his shop set up in sections where each step in the process is completed. Marty is an amazing person with such a passion for what he does. The end product is just amazing. I truly recommend if you are an artist, guitar lover or just a collector you have to see and hear the MacMillan Guitar. They are simply amazing and one of the best sounding guitars I have heard! Enjoy this interview as we take a look into Marty’s background and his career.
I was so impressed with the work that Marty does the moment I got back to my hotel room I messaged him that I needed to get a guitar. I am going to bring you step by step photos of the guitar on social media along the way. This is going to be a B Chord Original!

While in Nashville we got the phone call to do an interview with the very talented Jenna Renae.

During our interview the main thing that struck me was she is so personable and her voice is amazing and will have you in awe. Jenna Renae thank you so much for taking the time to talk with us. B Chord can not wait to follow your incredible journey. We hope you enjoy our interview with Jenna.
