Nephew of Country Music Hall of Famer, Ferlin Husky

Published Tuesday, September 6, 2022 8:00am

Michael Huskey, nephew of Country Music Hall of Famer, Ferlin Husky (he dropped the "e" for the stage) covers a lot of ground, from old country to rock, folk and blues, making classic hits his own with a unique blend of Americana found throughout his original songs as well. 

His inspirations, in addition to his late uncle, include Bob Dylan, Jim Croce, Tom Petty and more recent artists like Chris Stapleton, Martin Sexton and various rock and blues artists we have all come to love. Michael also brings stories about his uncle Ferlin and his next door neighbor and buddy, Johnny Cash, along with songs accompanying encounters with other prolific people his travels have blessed him to meet over the years.

After being in the TV business and playing music for decades everywhere from St. Louis, where he was born, throughout the Midwest, California, Hawaii and Asia, Michael is working hard to get his Uncle Ferlin’s famous #1 crossover hit, “Wings of a Dove,” back on the charts from his new home in New Braunfels. 

“Uncle Ferlin was and remains such an inspiration to me, I just feel strongly this new version of his iconic hit needs to be heard by the world. So far Heaven seems to agree from what I can see!  it’s my honor to be a new addition to the New Braunfels musical family. 

The talent and kindness I have found here in South Texas and throughout the Hill Country is truly unparalleled anywhere I’ve lived. I look forward to seeing y’all at New Braunfels Coffee after church this Sunday from 11:30-2PM! along with some of the other wonderful venues I’m blessed to be playing in the area.”
