Junior Brown

Junior Brown (born 1953) is an American country singer from Kirksville, Indiana. He didn't begin a musical career until 1985, when he invented a double-necked guitar with Michael Stevens (see 1985 in music). He called it a "guit-steel". Brown quickly became a local success in Austin, Texas at the Continental Club. His debut album was 1993's 12 Shades of Brown; it was followed by Guit with It later that year (1993 in music). Both albums cemented his reputation as one of the more critically acclaimed country singers of the 1980s, though he was unable to capitalize on his reputation.

In 1995 (1995 in music), Brown made a comeback bid wth Semi Crazy, followed by 1997's (1997 in music) The Long Walk Back.
