The Malpass Brothers

The Malpass Brothers music is steeped in the legacy of Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Hank Williams. George Jones and Merle Haggard. You’ll also hear a few old-time Gospel tunes.

You can count on some big hair, fancy boots, and maybe even an Elvis twitch or two. And some funny, off-the-cuff banter between siblings.

As recently as October 2022, the Malpass Brothers won two Josie Music Awards in Nashville: the Duo/Group of the Year for Traditional/Classic Country, and Entertainer of the Year for a Duo/Group.

“This act is one of the most popular in Nashville and Branson,” said Sharon Brass, The Barnhill Center producer. “So we went to hear them in concert. They captivated us and the whole audience with the first song. It’s a show that you don’t want to end, it’s so fun.

“They say that, if you like cornbread and hush puppies, you’re gonna love The Malpass Brothers! It’s not only the music that draws you in, but also their humor and their down-home personalities.”

With refreshing sincerity and honesty, their smooth vocal blend and skillful band take you on a time-traveling journey – to a place where a calmer rhythm reigned supreme.

The Malpass Brothers have shared stages with Merle Haggard, Ray Price, Willie Nelson, Marty Stuart, Doc Watson and many more country greats.

When they were teenagers, the great Merle Haggard invited them to perform as his opening act. They traveled and recorded with him for the next seven years.

Since Haggard’s death, The Malpass Brothers have become fan favorites on RFD TV shows, Larry’s Country Diner and Country’s Family Reunion.

They made their debut at the Grand Ole Opry in December of 2018, and they have also appeared as guest artists on Circle TV’s Dailey & Vincent Show. (Circle TV is the official network of The Grand Ole Opry).

Their PBS documentary entitled Heading Home debuted on UNC-TV in June 2018.

The title cut video from their “Memory That Bad” album hit CMT’s Pure Country’s Top Ten list.
