Jacob McCoy Burton

Wedding Band

Published on SMPWedding Bands
The 24-year-old Texan was gifted his first guitar at an early age, but for Burton, what molded him into a musician largely remains a mystery.

“I’m not exactly sure how I got here, or what made me want to make music,” he says.

Perhaps Burton’s music, and more specifically his distinct brand of Americana, is innate. Jacob was raised in Amarillo—a place where the kicked-up dust ruins the finish of your car, and the dirt supplants itself under your fingernails at an early age. It is “red dirt country,” or the land where iron oxide turns the soil red—and just maybe it’s the clay from that earth that has been molding Jacob’s songs all along.
