The Eagle & the Snake: Songs of the Texians

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Rick Cohoon
When Brian Burns set out to create The Eagle & the Snake, he said he had always wanted to make a completely cowboy album. In fact, that's just what he did, using compelling storytelling mixed with the rich and vibrant history of his home state of Texas. The collection includes songs written by the likes of the great Marty Robbins and Hoyt Axton as well as songs penned by Burns himself, a prolific singer/songwriter and figure in Texas music. Burns' unique approach even takes on a written letter-put-to-music from Lonestar history; the letter was written by Colonel William Barret Travis during the siege of the Mexican Santa Ana. As with the other cuts, Burns' rich voice ...

As with the other cuts, Burns' rich voice takes fiction to reality. The fiesta-Texas Spanish guitar and accordion gallop through "Gallo del Cielo," and Burns provides the tour of Texas on his own punchy version of "I've Been Everywhere." One critique of the album is that some of the material seems a bit long, some over six minutes in length. This isn't always a negative but is risky with today's audience. Indeed, Burns has himself a cowboy album, and a worthy one at that.

    My favorite

    This is just a wonderful album. I could play it every day for the rest of my life and never get tired of it. Brian Burns has a great voice and all the songs showcase it.

    Eagle & the Snake: Songs of the Texians

    Brian Burns produced a master recording for real country music fans. The spanish guitar, rich vocals and wonderful story-telling make this a must-own cd. I particularly am fond of "I've Been Everywhere (in Texas)", "Evangelina" and "Third Coast". Although "Third Coast" is too long to be 'radio-friendly', Larry Joe Taylor is a terrific songwriter and Brian's version is destined to become a classic.
