When you’ve been doing something for 20 plus years you’re an expert. When you’ve been doing it for half a century you’re a legend. Texas Johnny Brown put blues music in Houston on the map.

The blues legend stopped by Yates High School to talk about a genre of music some students weren’t even familiar with.

When asked...just what is the significance of blues Brown said, “What blues means to me....to do as much as you can to keep away from being blue.”

What a cool way to look at it.

Using blues music to make sure you aren’t blue! The students got the rare chance to get up close and personal with Johnny Brown.

After hearing Texas Johnny jam out, the auto-tune of T-Pain doesn’t sound so cool anymore.
