Much of the attention for Travis Meadows began in 2010, when Meadows self-released Killin’ Uncle Buzzy, a raw masterpiece that left listeners stunned. “I was in rehab, and one of my counselors suggested that I keep a journal, so I basically made a record out of that journal,” Meadows says. It became an unlikely phenomenon, handed from friend to friend and artist to artist with whispers of, ‘Listen. It’s the best thing you’ll hear all year.’ 

Meadows’ prolific, searingly honest lyrics appear in performances by some of country’s biggest stars. Disciples have been dancing by Meadows’ fire for years: Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Mary Gauthier, Brandy Clark, Hank Williams, Jr., Wynonna Judd, Randy Houser and own Blackberry Smoke began writing with, recording, and praising Meadows as soon as they heard his work.

Killin’ Uncle Buzzy sees the Nashville-based, Mississippi-born singer/songwriter's heart-wrenchingly authentic lyricism slip hand-in-hand with his delicately beautiful yet haunting country melodies. Each performance on the album cannot only be heard but felt in heart and soul across every earthy timbre: warm, organic strums of guitar and the stirring spirit of Meadows’ sage vocals play sanctuary to the ghosts of his personal tragedy and the haunts of his time in rehab and prison. In 35 minutes, Meadows creates more of an imprint on the listener with Killin’ Uncle Buzzy than many artists could do with their life’s work.
