Last Friday, country music star Curtis Braly celebrated his 13-year anniversary with husband/manager Jeff Riley. The “Song You Can Drink a Beer To” singer met Riley in 2002 at a mutual friend’s dinner party and the two have been inseparable ever since. Braly and Riley took their private plane to a special anniversary dinner in Texas.
Country music powerhouse and Humble, Texas native Curtis Braly is a jack of all trades. With experience in theatre, choir, radio, criminal justice, emergency medical services and aviation, he found his true calling as an entertainer & true showman. His single “Song You Can Drink A Beer To (REMIX)” released worldwide July 6th along with a thirst- quenching summertime music video. Performing and touring with fellow country artists such as Dolly Parton, Tanya Tucker, Daryl Singletary and Johnny Rodriguez, Curtis draws from these performers’ abilities to capture an audience—to bring music to life as a must-hear storyteller.
With his explosive stage presence, Braly “delivers” an intimate connection with believable emotion and a charging energy allowing his story to unfold right before your ears. While Curtis is devoted to his music career, it is also his mission to give back. Braly takes pride in volunteering his piloting skills and personal aircraft to organizations like Pilots N Paws and Angel Flight. Curtis also volunteers, each year, to Christmas 4 Kids and recently announced the exciting launch of his non-profit “The Ruby Foundation,” an organization committed to inspiring, empowering & improving the lives of young adults by providing an annual uplifting & motivational youth camp to combat stress, depression & lack of self-esteem caused by bullying. Curtis’ music and sincere philanthropy cater to the seasoned music lover as well as the new generation of fans and listeners who have a hankering for pop, jazz, and rock influences.
