Merf Entertainment is proud to be booking Marty Brown! Marty was born in Maceo, Kentucky. He started playing guitar and writing songs at twelve and entering local talent shows at sixteen. Throughout his teens he worked in the tobacco fields of Kentucky often playing his guitar during lunch hours under the shade of a nearby tree.
Eventually Marty made his way to Nashville and met legendary record producer Tony Brown who signed him to a record deal at MCA Records. Marty, together, with Tony, made four (4) albums for MCA and eight (8) videos for CMT television AND APPEARED ON “THE GRAND OL OPRY STAGE” over the next ten (10) years performing… Wild Kentucky Skies, In My Wildest Dreams, High and Dry, and Every Now and Then.
He toured with acts such as Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Hank Williams Jr. and many, many, more. After his recording years, he started writing hit songs for artists like the heart-felt and groovy, “I’m From the Country and I Like It That Way” for Tracy Byrd and the classic country tune, “When I Stop Loving You” for Trace Adkins. He still lives in Kentucky with his wife, Shellie, and kids, and he is still cranking out his classic country sound. Marty is just coming off a successful run to the New York City semi finals of NBC’s hit reality show, Season 8 America’s Got Talent where he wowed television audiences of 11 million people worldwide, with his cover of the Bob Dylan classic, Make You Feel My Love!
All the attention from America’s Got Talent has caught the eye of legendary music producer, Keith Stegall. Under Stegall’s direction, Marty Brown has recorded the hit single, Make You Feel My Love, which is scheduled to release on Sirius XMFM The Highway in 2016. The download of Make You Feel My Love will be available soon.
