“It’s not about looking pretty on stage while singing hokey songs behind the mic, it’s about gettin’ buck-wild and up in the fans' faces. It’s about giving them a show they will never forget. It’s about having a ‘kick the door down, turn it up’ attitude you don’t really see in today’s country music scene. That’s what I have to offer.”

At an early age, Springfield native Braxton Calhoun displayed interest for entertainment by performing skits for his family and at the local church. “Me and my sisters were always trying to put on a show for our parents or for anyone, really. We always looked for ways to steal their attention.” His first big performance, which would later become known as the turning-point in his life, was during his high school graduation. It had only been one year after 9/11, and Braxton performed the song “Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)” by Alan Jackson in front of thousands of people. “Everyone stood up, clapped and cheered. I had never experienced anything like that before. That’s when I knew I wanted to pursue a career in music."

Braxton Calhoun is a country artist looking to rattle a few cages with his rockstar attitude and blow-your-speakers country style. He brings a level of southern-bred authenticity that trumps all the country wannabes. “You know all these pretty boys in country music that get on stage with their fancy clothes and cowboy hats probably ain’t never had a bucket of deer guts dumped all over them. I guarantee it.” Braxton’s major influences range from Alan Jackson and Garth Brooks to Breaking Benjamin and Fetty Wap. These influences seep through to his music with foot stomping rock riffs and his smooth, groovin rhythm style, Braxton is one artist you definitely need to look out for in years to come.
