Sermon from the Ridge

We have well established that Prostitution is the worlds oldest profession. I have a very strong opinion that Thief and Musician are 2nd and 3rd. We could belabor the argument about which of the three came first. IHMO it was musician, but don't get me started. In the past year I have had my music pirated by off shore scammers, ripped off directly by clients and rolled by a villainous venue. Over the past few years I have had "artists" steal my music and labor, and purport it to be their own. To Those: Please.... Nothing is "Free" Pay your bills or Karma is a bitch of a debt collector. Those songs you say are yours? LOL You were never "that good" without my labor. PERIOD. There are some among these pirates and carpetbaggers, who are diligently trying for "success" in the industry. To truly be a winner at the Musician Game, you must NOT use methods from the other 2 oldest professions. Doing so just makes you a Thief and a Whore. A good thief never lacks for work in this Fool's world. A whore ages, may continue to work for a while, but nobody hires a old whore. A good musician grows and flourishes forever. So if you have to "trade favors" or steal to advance your music, you are actually incurring a miserable debt....

Changed Catergory!!!

After a very long run at the top of the Local, National and Global Bluegrass Charts here on ReverbNation, The Knoxville Sound has moved over to Folk Charts. We feel this more aptly fits our new, very diverse musical content. We pledge to remain Authentic, Acoustic, Regional and Real. But we are more rocking, countrified,singer/songwriter, and bluer than ever. Across 6 ReverbNation Sites we have over 100 songs in catalog and top 10 chart ratings for EACH SITE!!! This morning The Knoxville Sound had 2,999 views from all over the globe. Thanks for all your support! This is impossible without you, the FAN! You RAHK!


A giant thank you to all who participated in the free Sunshine download! We will have more free stuff soon! You all rock!

Thanks to you real fans I am #1 in the toughest market for bluegrass I can think of! Not only that, you have me in the national charts at #21. Global Rank? #22!!! I can't do this without you, my FANS!! There is a reason Kent Bilbrey Productions LLC is ranked so highly. YOU!!! MY FANS have propelled me to places I have only dreamed of. We dominate the bluegrass category with 4 album choices!!! Kent Bilbrey Productions IS Kent Bilbrey Productions, Sutton Aquarius, Bilbrey/Phillips for Cow Pokes AND The Minions of Grass. Additionally, Bilbrey/Phillips for Kids is Local #1 as well. We CANNOT do this without you! Please listen (and buy downloads please) to all of our music!
