Most people might not give this guy a second look, but when you hear the unbelievable voice that comes out of him, you won’t want to do anything but stick around and listen! 

Branden Wayne Martin, a.k.a “Branden Backwoods Martin”, has been singing and writing music for some time – but not too long as he’s only 23 years old! 

Crowned the champion of “Hoedown in the Holler”, Martin competed against many other musicians at the annual event and took home the top prize of a management and production deal! 

He’s one accomplished fellow, and when you hear his stunning vocal talent and guitar skills kick in on one of country music’s most loved songs, you’ll be begging for more! 

Sitting at a small pavilion for what looks like a family picnic, Martin has just a single guitar in his hands when he begins strumming the legendary Montgomery Gentry hit “Hillbilly Shoes”

Their 1999 debut single has grown massively over the years, etching itself as a staple in country music collections, and a true symbol of the genre. When the hard-rocking duo released it, it stormed the charts landing in the Top 20 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs, and helped take their debut album platinum! 

Watch this unassuming fellow dazzle everyone near him with his truly God-given talent!
