Bryan Martin Is NRA Country

posted on April 4, 2023
Bryan Martin

Bryan Martin is a singer/songwriter from Logansport, La. He grew up on the Sabine River, hunting and fishing and living the small-town life. As a roughneck in the oil fields, Bryan lives the stories he writes. With a blue-collar everyday working-class background, this Cherokee country artist takes real-life emotions and experiences and turns them in to songs for the “Average Joe.” Self Inflicted Scars, Bryan’s first album, sends you wandering just by the name, just as the artist wants you to. Bryan is a gun-toting, outdoor-loving, true American Patriot and supporter of the Second Amendment. Check out his music and tour schedule at NRA Country’s Lisa Supernaugh took a moment to speak with Bryan and ask him a few questions.

LS: Who got you in to hunting, fishing and the outdoors?
BM: My dad had me in the woods since I could walk the creek with him and sit under a tree looking for squirrels. It became something that made me learn patience and respect for the responsibility I had.

LS: Do you have a memorable hunting trip you could tell us about?
BM: I remember the first time I got a deer. I was 14 years old in a little ground blind. It was the first time on my own. It felt great. I had taken what I learned from my dad and used it to provide. I have had respect for it ever since.

LS: Who was your biggest influence to get you started in the industry?
BM: Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Vern Gosdin, George Jones, Hank Williams … I can’t name just one. They all made me want to do it.

LS: Are you the songwriter of all your songs ? If so, do you enjoy writing or singing more?
BM: I have written all the songs I have recorded. I love it. I will always be a songwriter first and foremost. The artist is just the reflection the lyrics I have lived in songs.

LS: You wrote a song called F.AF.O. What prompted you to write that?
BM: I was always raised to be proud of what you have, no matter how much or how little. Protect what’s yours at all costs.

LS: Do you have a favorite firearm?
BM: My single-barrel .410 shotgun my dad gave me when he trusted me to go out on my own on my first hunt.

LS: You have been an avid outdoorsman since you were young; how do you share your love of the outdoors with your family?
BM: I take time to teach my kids shooting bows, fishing, gun safety and the values and responsibilities that my dad taught me.

LS: What does freedom mean to you?
BM: The peace I felt as a child in the woods, watching the squirrels, fishing with my dad. No fear, no worries, just my dad, me and the ability to sit quietly taking in everything around me and feeling safe.

If you’ve ever wondered why nonviolent felonies should disqualify someone from their Second Amendment rights for life, then you’re asking the same question a court just did.

The Red Tape of the Bureaucracy

Despite the Second Amendment’s plain language, there are still many places throughout the country in which it is nearly impossible for even the most-conscientious citizen to follow the letter of the law. This is by design.

The Increasing Burden of Backdoor Gun Control

A mountain of fees, regulations and more is making it increasingly difficult for many law-abiding Americans to exercise their Second Amendment rights. This is what gun-control proponents want.
