Born in Baltimore, Maryland, and raised in Texas City, Texas, Collins played in local bands until a chance hearing by Dolly Parton when he was aged 15. With her encouragement, two years later, he began making records in Nashville. In 1971, Brian was signed to ABC Records where a string of hits followed including, “Statue of a Fool”. In 1980 Brian was nominated for a Grammy Award for his song “Hello Texas” recorded by Jimmy Buffett on the Urban Cowboy Soundtrack. After a self imposed “break” from the music business..Brian is back and hopes that you like this new single, “Times Like These” which is a reflection of today’s economic circumstances. Also, Brian is now available for bookings.
