The Coal Country Heartbreakers

2022-06-10

Front cover

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

2021-11-23

Front cover

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.

2021-02-21

Front cover

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)

2020-12-01

Front cover

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

2019-11-27

Front cover

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.
