Lights! Red, Green, and Silver
Our Christmas song for 2022 takes lyrical inspiration from traditional religious hymns such as "Hark! the Herald Angels Sing" and "We Three Kings" and musical inspiration from the symphonic metal of Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
It may be a little too outside of the box for a beloved holiday carol, but we can't help ourselves.
The Coal Country Heartbreakers
In the song Please Break My Heart from our first album, Billy Bob claims he will "…drive my career into a ditch with the worst songs I can write." But his attempt to deliberately write a bad album backfires and becomes a huge hit. We wondered what those songs might sound like and realized we were just the band to make them!
If you like traditional, old-fashioned country songs sprinkled with a little silliness, this album just might make you tap your toe and bring a smile to your face.
A Coal Country Christmas
Our latest song, sure to become a caroling standard, is called "A Coal Country Christmas" and was born from the world of Billy Bob. Sung by Billy Bob, Sr. it is his plea for his wife to not leave. That's right, this one isn't hardly silly at all!
The Legacy of Billy Bob, Sr.
In February of 2021 Barker & Broski released their second album, The Legacy Of Billy Bob, Sr. Plus an Assortment of Delightfully Random Tunes.
It included quirky songs like Surf Zombie and Battle of the Ides of March, and added stories to the Billy Bob universe. This time it was a prequel to the previous album's story that explored Billy Bob's father and the circumstances of his birth and subsequent curse.
December 24th, 1829 (Get a Larder Full)
2020 gave us another Christmas story. (We love stories!) This time about a boy asking his dad "Why doesn't Santa give me any presents?" His father passes along the family legend of how an ancestor shot one of Santa's Reindeer in the song December 24, 1829.
Dollar Store Christmas
Every holiday season since 2019, B&B celebrate by releasing a Christmas single. Our first holiday release was the silly yet sentimental "Dollar Store Christmas". If you find bad bootleg and knock-off toys amusing, you will enjoy the cavalcade of fake merchandise on display in the accompanying video.
The Ballad of Billy Bob and Other Generic American Folklore
November of 2019 was the release our debut album. It featured our now staple songs Generica, Dystopian Waltz, and Old Man in the Mirror. The country parody Don't make our Love Like a Drive-by Shooting expanded into the 5-song suite "The Ballad of Billy Bob".
