Brandon Jenkins / The Deedles
“Red dirt music” gets it’s name from the blood red soil and surrounding landscape of Stillwater, Okla., the place many hail as ground zero of the style. While locating the music’s epicenter is easy, defining its sound is a little more difficult. But one listen to Brandon Jenkins, and the concept becomes easier to grasp. With a voice as big as Texas, and guitar chops (and beard) that would make Billy Gibbons proud, Jenkins takes his rightful place as one of the shining stars of not only red dirt, but American music.
