New album reflects life’s journey


American novelist Pat Conroy said it well: “Without music, life is a journey through a desert.” Ennis singer and songwriter Brandon Hixson, who is an avid saxophonist, will release his fourth album on Monday, Jan. 21, and it is one he likens to a reflective journeyBorn in the sleepy little town of Dawson, which is 20 miles southwest of Corsicana. He recorded music on mix tapes for his friends at an early age, learning the impact that tunes have upon people. “When I was five,” he recalled, “I can remember sitting in the back seat of my mother’s car in Waco. A song came on the radio and she started crying, so much in fact that she had to pull the car over and dry her eyes. I asked her what was wrong and she simply told me that the song had moved her.”
“That,” said little Hixson, “is when I learned right there and then, just how powerful music was.” Read this story and more in your Weekend edition of The Ennis News. Be informed, subscribe today!
