Meeting Reckless Kelly's Willy Braun

Posted on Feb 10, 2016

On a recent road trip I had the pleasure of meeting Willy Braun, the vocalist and guitarist of the Austin based country band Reckless Kelly. Over a few pitchers of beer we talked about their current tour ( and some of the cool projects they have been working on.

Recently Reckless Kelly posted on Facebook:

"Every year or so we get together with our buddy Peter Jacobson AKA Jake Trout and back him up for a tune as the Ball Washers. We recorded a song recently and they made a video of it for the Phoenix Open Waste Management Golf Tournament. NBC played it a couple of times on the live broadcast last weekend. Here is the link to youtube so you can check out the video and the link to buy the song on itunes. All the money will go to Waste Management charities!

The song is called " It's a Jungle in Here " and features Peter and Amy Jacobson , members of RK & MMC and Bukka Allen. We recorded it in Austin at Arlyn Studios in early Dec 2015. Hope you enjoy it.

Willy couldn't have been a cooler guy to hang with and talk to, especially his strong opinions on what people are calling "country music". If you have the chance please check them out at and give their music a listen at!
