McPherson cite he was born into a music loving family, listening to everything from Prince to Waylon Jennings.  Music was in his blood but not in his soul, until he saw Garth Brooks in concert in 1995.  From that, he found his calling!  At the age of twenty-one, finally old enough to get into a bar, Brian and his brother began a country music duo, The McPherson Brothers.  Playing local bars in Sacramento to casinos, night clubs as well as campgrounds and more throughout Nevada, Oregon and all over California to whoever would listen. From that evolved Flat Busted.
