Curtis Braly Bio
"I knew that music was my destiny. There is no other feeling like it, says Curtis Braly, a Houston-based country singer, as he recalls of his musical memories from childhood.
Recently named 2014 Country Male Artist of the Year by the International Music and Entertainment Association (IMEA), Braly began singing with his mother in the church choir. After winning an eighth grade talent contest singing "Old Time Rock and Roll and a national talent contest during his sophomore year, Braly knew he was destined for country music stardom. "Something magical happened to me on that stage, says Braly, remembering his first contest.
While working at 93Q, a country radio station in Houston, Braly was given the opportunity to become the opening act for Daryl Singletary and later, Johnny Rodriguez. After showcasing his music to over 5000 country music fans, he began working on a two-song demo with award-winning songwriter and publisher, Randy Boudreaux. This led to Braly spending more time in Nashville as he continued rehearsing, performing, and honing his craft.
In October, 2000, Braly returned to Humble, TX to perform at a benefit concert. During his performance, he watched with exhilaration as he was interrupted by the mayor of Humble who stepped on stage and declared that October 14, 2000, would be considered "Curtis Braly Day.
Currently living in Texas, while traveling to and from Nashville, Braly continues to record heartfelt music. His hard work and determination has even caught the attention of a new sponsor.
