  Anthony 'T.' Graham Brown

This popular country singer began performing in his native Georgia before moving to Nashville in 1982. After signing with Capital Records in 1985 he recorded a string of hits including "I Tell it Like it Used to Be," "Darlene," "Come as You Were," "If Only You Could See Me Now," and "Don't Go Out" (with Tanya Tucker).

But it was his crossover hit "Brilliant Conversationalist" that brought him to his widest audience ever. It made VH-1's Top Ten Videos and was played on pop stations across the United States.

Over the years T. Graham Brown struggled with an alcohol problem. During this time he co-wrote "Wine Into Water," a gripping, deeply personal song about his dealing with his problem. The song sat on the shelf for years. When he finally performed the tune it became a personal favorite as fans told him their own stories of battles with alcoholism.

In 2003, Brown released another song, "Which Way to Pray," written by Bill Anderson. The song deals with two touchy subjects, child and spousal abuse.
