Music and poetry go hand in hand for not only the writer or singer, but also for the listener. Tazewell native Brandon Fulson shares his feelings, emotions and life stories through written word put to music.
His musical start came in the form of howling coon hounds. He and his father used to hunt and when Fulson moved on to other hobbies, his dad wanted to buy his hunting dog from him. Fulson said no, but eventually caved to his father’s request when he offered him a guitar for trade.
He taught himself to play using that guitar when he was 16 years old, devoting many hours to learning chords through trial and error.
