SOP Battle of the Bands Featuring McKinley & Beggs with 'By The Fire'

By The Fire

Fans haven`t had a taste of true, pure `grassroots` country in a long, long time.  Thankfully, McKinley & Beggs have entered the country music scene with their incredible debut CD titled, By The Fire, as well as a new album that`s almost ready to roll.

Born in separate counties in Florida, the paths of Ronny McKinley and Jody Beggs were meant to cross.  As individual artists, they met at a country music venue, and swore an oath that they`d one day join forces.  As both musicians headed to Nashville and worked with the literal `greats` of the country music world, they both ended up side-by-side with the legendary Hank Cochran.

Soon, fate took them by the hands and McKinley & Beggs were born.  As McKinley & Beggs began to flourish, Florida Magazine rated their collaboration as one of the top three entertaining bands that`d ever originated from Florida.

A legend soon came across the path of McKinley & Beggs, and after hearing just a few songs, Mel Tillis signed them to his own label - proving to the world that these two men are the absolute best that the country music world has to offer!

There`s no arguing with Mel Tillis - McKinley & Beggs are definitely the next Hall of Famers!
