I have been listening to your cd's all day! I am hoping and praying that you go to the top. You are so kind and thoughtful and your name should be a household name! Teresa Thompson -
I have known Brent for many years. I have been around him at times when most people would have given up! He has been an inspiration to so many people including myself! Brent has the attitude to Never Give Up and just like the energizer bunny he keeps on truckin through all kinds of adversities!
I thought Brent was good back in the day and he was but now I seriously think he is better than he ever has been! As the song says there might be a little dust on the bottle but it only makes it better. I have know idea where he gets his tenacity and his perseverance but I am very proud to call him my friend ! I know you will make it big because everything you are doing is building the foundation for success!! But you already know this! Your oklahoma buddy! -
I attended the Silver Gate Brent Payne concert and was blown away by the band. These guys are the real thing. I am use to the California watered down version of country music. The entire room was dancing. Payne's original writen songs should be on the radio. What a great evening. WM Wallace -
Hi Brent we met you at your Fan booth and I just wanted to say that you make your fans feel very warm and fuzzy. Your humility is amazing and very endearing. You extended your kindness to all that stopped by and it was very noticeable. IAs I was waiting in line for you to sign my CD I watched you give an elderly woman extra attention and then I heard her say she had just lost her husband last week. You then grabbed her and gave this lady a bear hug and said Never Give Up! As she walked away she had tears in her eyes because you went out of your way to make her feel better. You may or may not have known that she was crying but you made her day! I just thought you would like to know that. Again thanks for your performance it was fabulous! Patricia and Family -
My friends took me out the other night to celebrate our engagement party! They know I love country but normally stay away from the club scene! I am originally from Nashville and miss the pure sound there. We went to a very upscale place in Anaheim a bit to pretentious for me but thats Ca. I think its halarious how most bands try to be something they are not! It seems the local bands try to imitate Jason Aldean. Look a likes and sound a likes and miss the mark drastically. I don't think he is very country to start with. That brings me to why I am on your site! I was working a charity event where you were performing. Because I love country I was betting my work-mates that you would be Bubble-gum country like most of Orange County! From the minute you walked on stage your stage presence and country timbre were obviously very different! I grew up listening to Bob Wills & The Texas Playboys and some of your songs had a traditional twin fiddle feel and then a tasty today country feel! I just wanted to tell you that your true southern country sound was noticed and appreciated. I bought your cd's from Amazon and they are very put together well. Your calender does not have any club dates on it? Are there places we can go to see you perform? Again being from Nashville you have got a great country sound but with energy! I will be checking back to your web site. Take Care Barry Fighst -
