Country Music Entertainer Frenchie Burke Has Passed Away

No Comments

“Frenchie passed away with his beloved wife Sara by his side on Saturday at 7:11 PM,” Heart of Texas Records President Tracy Pitcox said. “During the last few years, he had suffered some debilitating strokes and had been diagnosed with cancer. Although he was in a rehab facility for the last couple of months, he still longed to be back on stage. The stage was his life and where he shined brightest.”

Frenchie Burke was born in the small Louisiana town of Kaplan, not for from Lafayette. His grandfather taught him to play the fiddle and he began to play with small bands throughout Louisiana. He began to work the road and attract attention of some well know entertainers.

He joined the United States Air Force and continued to entertain his fellow service men including winning the annual talent contests.

After leaving the Air Force, Burke began working for Ray Price, Little Jimmy Dickens and Johnny Bush touring throughout the United States and Canada. It was while working with Johnny Bush that Frenchie cut his first record, “Warm With Love In Here.”

“After I left Willie, I formed my own band, starting with fiddler Frenchie Burke. He was the very first Bandolero,” Bush recalls. “He was from Houston, and he’d been working singles with me when I was still with Willie. Back in those days, those Texas fiddle players were treacherous, there were some bad fiddle players out there. But Frenchie and I really gelled together because he could play.”

In 1974, he received extensive airplay with his version of the old Cajun waltz “Big Mamou.” It quickly became the number one requested song on several Texas radio stations including KIKK in Houston, KKYX in San Antonio and WBAP in Ft. Worth. 20th Century Records then released it and it became a number one record across the nation. Other chart hits followed including “The Fiddlin of Jacques Pierre Bordeaux,” “Frenchie’s Cotton Eyed Joe” and “Let’s Get Drunk and Be Somebody.”

The highlight of the Frenchie Burke Show was his version of the “Orange Blossom Special.” The show ended with Burke going out into the audience and “fiddling” around with various members of the audience. It was a fan favorite all over the country. Burke’s was a high energy presentation with vocals and instrumentals that became standards in the Country Music industry.

Frenchie was voted the Cashbox Instrumentalist of the Year in 1981 and along with his band was given the Best New Duo of 1975. His album “Fiddlin Frenchie Burke” was ranked the number four album in 1975. He last album was on Startex Records called “Dance Album.”

When asked how he wanted to be remembered last month, Burke simple said “L-O-V-E”.

He is survived by his wife Sara, five childred Buck Roberts, Brenda Vosler, Donna Lynn Bourque, Bobby Gene Bourque and Leah Bourque, eleven grandchildren and two great grandchildren. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

From the minute Cory Morrow pulled Drew up to play in front of a sold out crowd at the legendary Gruene Hall, Drew knew he was born to play music. Soon after Grammy Award winner Lloyd Maines and Texas Country staple Cory Morrow encouraged Drew to put a band together, the newly formed Drew Fish Band was shaking the Blind Pig Pub and Hill’s Cafe. Since then, the DFB has performed energy-filled live shows all over the Lone Star State. DFB’s debut EP, Playin’ with a Flame, features talent who have cumulatively raked in 15 Grammy Awards. Produced by five-time-Grammy-Award-winning production genius Adam Odor, the EP includes appearances by five-time-Grammy-Award-winner Cindy Cashdollar on steel guitar and dobro, two-time-Grammy-Award-winner Jason Roberts on fiddle, Cody Braun of Reckless Kelly singing harmonies and Scott Davis of the Band of Heathens, formerly Hayes Carll, on banjo, accordion, and mandolin. Whether it’s the generation above him two stepping to Show Me Tonight or the younger generation ready for the next Three Day Weekend, audiences of all ages identify with the candid, insightful, sometimes rowdy songs of the Drew Fish Band.

TTRMS Debut Performance: 2016

Top Songs: “Small Price To Pay,” “Playin’ With A Flame,” “Treat You Right“.

Granger’s 5th Annual Boot Walk

No Comments

Do you know a gold star family? Or has someone close to you been killed in action while serving in active duty? Granger wants to help tell their story. Go to BootWalk.com to see how you can get involved.

Country music artist and proud patriot Granger Smith is lacing up his combat boots once again for his fifth annual Boot Walk.

This year’s format will be different, however. In years past, Granger has taken the 100-mile trek from Austin, TX to Fort Hood that culminated in a benefit concert with proceeds going to the national 501c3 non-profit, Boot Campaign. For 2017, Granger is calling for families and friends of fallen soldiers to submit their stories to be shared through a documentary series. Five candidates will be chosen to be featured and Granger will walk 20-miles in solitude to honor of each of them (totaling 100 miles); telling their personal story along the way. The deadline for submissions is Monday, December 28.

“There are heroes among us today,” says Granger. “When a hero falls, their legacy must live on. Their story must be told and retold. Their sacrifices have sewn the fabric of our freedom, and I’m setting out across the desert for 100 miles in their boots to honor the life they lived. When we lose someone to war, our worst fear is that their story will be lost with them. With every step of this Boot Walk, I will make sure that doesn’t happen.”

Since 2011, Granger has logged 400 miles as a tribute to those serving our country in the U.S. Armed Forces through The Boot Walk. Earlier this year, Granger embarked on a patriotic “Pledge of Allegiance” tour which took him to all 13 original colonies plus Washington, D.C. in just two days where he urged fans to join him in reciting our country’s pledge in front of national landmarks. He reminds us everyday to support our troops and show our appreciation for preserving our freedom. He has performed overseas numerous times and continues to do all he can to keep our military men and women on the forefront of our hearts and minds.
