Gary Burk III Special Guest On The Record Machine Show Podcast 4/13/20
Hailing from Western Pennsylvania, Gary Burk III’s musical journey began at age 9, while riding along with his dad to their family camp. There was a song playing on the radio…some old-time country tune that touched Gary in a way that would change his life forever. Drawing inspiration from his biggest influences, Alabama, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan, Gary fronts his 3 piece band of outlaws, performing at events across the region. Gary’s extensive collection of guitars includes a Custom Built Signature J&B Customs Tele-Style, as well as a Gibson Les Paul Robot Series In Manhattan Blue. He uses a Line 6 M16 module played through an Egnater Tweaker 40 amplifier.
Gary Burk III’s first single with MTS Records, “Friday Night,” reached the Top 20 iTunes country charts, while the follow-up, “You Got Me” duplicated that feat. Now, Gary is about to release his first album, Show ‘em What You Got on April 17th, 2020. The album features 7 tracks, including the previously mentioned hits, plus his brand new single, “Like That.” The single was produced by Love & Theft’s Eric Gunderson.
Burk III has appeared on major network TV affiliates across the country, including ABC, FOX, CBS and NBC. He was also a finalist in the 2019 Pittsburgh Idol competition.
When he’s not touring or recording, Gary enjoys spending time with his twin boys and two daughters.
