About the Burchfield Brothers:
Jon and Ben Burchfield grew up in the Smoky Mountains, along with their three other siblings. They were influenced by a musical family where neighbors and friends would bring their instruments for memorable evenings of Gospel and Appalachian music. Eventually, the family moved to south of Chicago, IL and there the Burchfield boys were exposed to a new world of music that included Classical, Latin and Jazz. At eighteen-years-old, Jon began to hone his guitar skills by playing in a backup band for CMA Country Hall of Fame member, Roy Clark. At the same time, Ben received a classical music degree from Olivet Nazarene University and when Jon came off the road, the brothers moved to Nashville, TN to pursue their music career. It wasn’t long before they received a Dove nomination for their “Smoky Mountain Memories” project and developed into a consistent strong touring act with numerous loyal fans.
