The Asbury Park country duo Williams Honor have played everywhere from Jersey Shore dives to Madison Square Garden.

"Can you believe in the middle of a pandemic here we are," said Gordon Brown of Williams Honor. "Red Bank, one of great ... cities in the area, opens a new venue in the state? We sold out our first show there and we're really excited."

For Asbury Park's Williams Honor - the up-and-coming duo featuring singer Reagan Richards and singer/multi-instrumentalist Gordon Brown - country's appeal in the Mile Square City comes as no surprise. "I have been fighting the good fight for about 15 years," Brown said. "When my band Highway 9 signed to RCA-Nashville, 'country' was a dirty word in Asbury Park. It's tough when the entire music community that you love and feel part of is not open to similarities between how rock and country have fused together over the past few years. And it's so great to see that completely turning around now. This is an amazing time right now and I really feel like this is a chance to give it another shot and show just what Jersey is capable of when it comes to supporting good country music."

Shore-based musicians Peter Scherer, Gordon Brown and Rob Tanico performed together at the first Light of Day benefit concert, in 2001. And this January, they reunited at the main Light of Day concert at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park (the one at which an unbilled Bruce Springsteen played for almost two hours). They performed just one song together, but it was a nostalgic treat, with their vocal harmonies sounding as rich and vibrant as ever.

"This is when everyone can say country music is alive and well on the East Coast," says Gordon Brown, of the Asbury Park-based country duo Williams Honor. "(Farmborough) is the moment -- this is a big deal." The festival also plays catch-up for New York and Jersey, considering country's dominance most everywhere else in the U.S. "Country music is America's music," says Brown. "It is the most popular genre across the nation. When you are driving in any pocket in America, the only thing you hear is hard rock and country music. The last people to really take it in are on the coasts."

The stars of country music come to the Jersey Shore, but do the stars of country come from the Shore? Not yet, but the new Williams Honor just might change that.

We've only gotten a taste of what Williams Honor can do, but through the first few tracks, Richards and Brown's mature songwriting and musicianship pours through. The sweeping single "Mama Please," which tackles child abuse is discernibly heartbreaking, but Richards' compelling tone lifts the chorus to a beautiful -- and undeniably catchy --place. You can't help but sing along despite the troubling lyrics.

The No. 1 mission of the Light of Day Winterfest is to fight Parkinson's Disease, but it has also become a de facto celebration of the musical heritage of Asbury Park. That's a good thing, says Bruce Springsteen, the unannounced headliner at 11 of the past 15 Light of Day Main Events, including Saturday, Jan 17 at the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park.

The show featured many musical highlights, including a fun set by John Eddie, who entertained with "F---ing 40," the New York grit of Garland Jeffreys, who was fierce on the song "Til John Lee Hooker Calls Me," a sweet acoustic turn from LOD MVP and Dramarama vocalist John Easdale, who performed at four LOD events over the course of one week, and the new alternative duo, Williams Honor, a new country duo with roots in Asbury Park, featuring Reagan Richard and Gordon Brown. The duo's appearance coincided with the recent release of its new single, "Mama Please," on iTunes. A full album is expected in April.

I'm always on board when talented people find each other. It just always makes sense when musicians with common passions throw in and double down for that elusive gold. The culmination of individual experience moves into a collective powerhouse of presentation and style that is tough to beat.

The stars of country music come to the Jersey Shore, but do the stars of country come from the Shore? Not exactly. Sure, singer Maggie Rose has ties to the area and the Ocean Township group After the Reign is a regional force, but the Shore is not known as a hotspot for country acts. Now, a new duo made up of established Shore talent is making a play to change that. Gordon Brown, formerly of Highway 9, and Reagan Richards, who's worked with everyone from Les Paul to Glen Burtnik, have teamed to form a new duo called Williams Honor.

It's always been rare for an artist to get signed with a major record label. Gordon Brown, a talanted songwriter from Long Branch, did it twice - in the late 1980s with Mr. Reality and again in the 2000s with Highway 9. Both bands featured a blend of country and rock and roll, creating a rather unique sound along the Jersey Shore. Now based in Nashville, the heart of the country music business, Gordon is back with a new band called Williams Honor with the charismatic lead singer, Reagan Richards.
