Alabama native Weston Burt has his eye on becoming country music's next big thing. A product of Fort Payne, AL which is home to legendary group Alabama, Weston was naturally born with an advantage. His authentic country sound, hard work ethic, and the gift of amazing vocals is what makes Weston the total package. In Jan, 2013 he set out on a radio tour to promote his then newly single "Lucky Sometimes." However, his latest single "Smile That Smile" is a song of pure musical genius. When I learned Rhett Akins was involved in co-writing the song, I wasn't surprised. Rhett is one of the best song writers of today's time. The song is on my top ten list of 2013. Weston Burt is talented beyond belief but I figured it was time to get to know this up and coming star just a little bit better.
