In every medium of fiction, there are no situations more popular and anticipated than a crossover of characters or entities to produce a much higher-stakes endeavor. When you let that happen in real life, especially when music is involved, the results are even sweeter.
Enter Blue Honey, a husband and wife duo in Nashville, TN. Blue Honey is the result of the combined efforts of individually lauded performer/songwriters Troy Brooks and Kassie Jordan, who are each no stranger to attention and success as artists. “We’ve always gotten good reviews in our separate solo gigs,” says Troy. “When we play together, though, especially as an acoustic duo, the response seems to be overwhelming.” Kassie adds, “There’s something special about it, for sure. We seem to read each other’s mind in terms of harmony, too. It’s so easy to sing with him.”
“The Nashville based duo have the perfect blend of country and blues (hence their band name) in their music and we can’t get enough of it.”
– Juliet Schroder, Celeb Secrets Country
The connection between the two is undeniable and can only be found between two people in love. Their harmonies intertwine flawlessly while showcasing Kassie’s powerhouse vocals and Troy’s blues inspired guitar riffs. They have brought that rare connection back into the studio to record their sophomore full-length project, Sweet Rebellion, which was co-produced by Kassie and Troy and includes twelve originals songs. The video for the debut single, “Angels Come Home,” debuted on world renowned outlet The Boot. The release of the new album falls on the heels of a milestone 2018 where they were named one of the “10 Country Artists To Watch in 2018” by The Nashville Knack, were included on The Country Source’s “One To Watch 2018” list and Buzzfeed’s “2018’s Country Music Obsessions” list. Their song “Wherever You Are Tonight” was also recently featured on Spectra Music’s Americana Made: Volume 1 compilation album.
“They’ve got a real magic together.”

Blue Honey wants to connect with their fans on a personal level through their albums and live shows. Kassie puts it quite simply, “It doesn’t matter what happens to this music as long as people can feel some of the songs and relate to them. We want to make music that people will want to listen to when they’re in the car on long trips or have playing at house parties. Maybe they’ll want to share it with their friends because it’s different. Because of who we are and what we mean to each other, this music is intrinsically part of our lives. We just hope that we do a good job relating that and other people will want to have it be part of their life as well.”
