The story of Burns & Poe started more than 25 years ago when a successful athlete Keith Burns changed his sports career for a rock guitar. Later he finds himself passionate about Waylon Jennings and country music. In 90’s he comes to Nashville, where starts a trio called Trick Pony that later becomes Grammy-nominated and wins American Music Award and an Academy of Country Music Award.
Michelle Poe was entirely opposite to Keith, being a timid and calm bookworm. At the age of 10 she joined the Poe family band. When choosing among musical instruments she picked a bass guitar – an instrument that has less strings but makes a strong volumetric sound. At 17 she moves to Nashville to attend Middle Tennessee State University. She participates in DreamWorks Nashville and plays with other touring bands like Hank Williams, Jr. and Dierks Bentley.
In 2007 Burns starts an auction to recruit a new woman lead singer for Trick Pony and Poe gives it a chance. Soon an artistic union of these two individuals resulted in a Burns & Poe duo. They quickly turned into a famous, branded, adrenaline-driven duo, performing incredible live shows.
In 2009 “Burns & Poe” sign a contract with Blue Steel Records. Later in 2010 they release their first single called “Don’t Get No Better Than That”. A few months later they released a full-length self-titled album through their website. A Christmas single “Hear the Angels Singing” followed the album in November of the same year. The album got a wide release in 2011 by Blue Steel Records and was promoted on an upcoming tour of the duo. Soon a Music Row magazine awarded them as an Independent Artist of the Year. Many journalists and critics acknowledge that “Burns & Poe” duo is a great creative union that strongly impacted the country and pop music on the whole. Every single track brings a certain feel that they really enjoyed working together.

There’s a wonderful old bookstore called Burns and Poe facing my apartment building. Sometimes in the morning I sit by my window with a cup of coffee and my morning newspaper and watch the shop keeper prepare the store to open. He’s a tall old man with a neatly trimmed white beard and heavy glasses that often slip down the bridge of his nose. He usually wears the same pants – well worn beige corduroys – and a pressed button down shirt.
I went down to visit him, finally, one cool summer morning. He’d been open for at least an hour but there weren’t any customers inside the store. He stared up at me over the frames of his glasses when I entered, a little brass bell signalling the opening of the door. He didn’t look like he was going to say anything, but then gave a dry little cough as I got closer to the counter where he sat and said: “Good morning.”
“Good morning!” I said cheerily. It was nice to be outside of my apartment, and this man in his empty store seemed so unassuming. Usually talking to strangers intimidated me but I felt comfortable here.
Burns and Poe was obviously named after the authors, Robert Burns and Edgar Allen Poe. I’d read both of them before and preferred Poe for his darkness. The shop was anything but dark – the aisles were well lit, with sofa chairs dotted here and there in between shelves, which were themselves stuffed full with bright volumes of every category of book imaginable.
The tallest shelves had big pots of flowering shrubs spilling vines on top. From a back corner emerged a white cat, her coat a little dusty but her eyes shining. She made right for me, twining once around my ankles then plopping on her butt in front of my feet, her chin perked up expectantly. I bent and scratched her head obligingly. She purred.
I ended up staying in the shop all day and got to talking with Mason, the owner. He’d been in the book business for 30 years and had just retired from a fairly well paying corporate position with one of the big chain bookstore. Opening his own store had always been a dream.
“Normally it’s a bit busier than this,” he told me. Actually there had been people streaming in and out all day, easing my fears that this was just another independent local shop that would soon be out of business. “I make do”.
Mason had made a tea in the afternoon and brought me a cup without me even asking. I sat in one of the comfortable sofas until just before 5, when I knew he would start closing. Then I bought the book I had been reading, and about a dozen others, and asked him if he ever needed any part time help, just for dusting and tidying the shelves. Maybe even one day a week.
“You know, I really don’t.” Mason was honest. “But I could sure use the company. Why don’t you come by on Mondays and we’ll go from there?”
So now on Mondays, instead of watching the shopkeeper open his shop, I’m downstairs doing it for him. You should come and visit Burns and Poe, pet Lila the cat and just enjoy a nice day reading books.
