Imagine a brand-new song written about our beloved Browns

One of the duties of your Browns Board of Directors is to follow up on leads of all kinds.  Sometimes this involves pursuing new directions that the club has never taken before.

Imagine our surprise when  the opportunity dropped in our lap to have a brand-new song written about our beloved Browns. 

In this case, the songwriter was none other than Joe Pickering Jr. who has written songs for HBO Films and has four albums of material in the national Baseball Hall Of Fame and Museum's sound collection.  Joe was interested in writing the song, and was not going to charge us anything, and all we had to do was work with him by providing him some of the history and lore of the Browns.

The result of this collaboration is the song "Brownie Pop Flies", a delightful song with a catchy hook.  It is a meditation, of sorts, on the Browns penchant for hitting the ball in the air rather than on a line.  The singer of "Brownie Pop Flies" is Danny Mack, a Country Music Association of America CMAA award winner and Hall of Famer.  the song features full instrumentation including guitar, bass, banjo, and piano, special effects.

The song is available for digital download at CD Baby.  Other online outlets will be available soon, as well as a compact disc edition.   CD Baby also allows a free streaming sample of the song so that you can make up your mind about the $.99 purchase.

We, in the fan club, hope that you will support Joe and reward him in his efforts.  And may this song spark a renaissance of some new Browns art, story, song and "lore".
