About Me

Dusty Duhon’s passion for country music began when he was a teenager growing up Abbeville, a small town in south Louisiana. While he was exposed to a variety of musical genres, a Tim McGraw concert at age 14 inspired him to pursue a career in country music. Shortly after that performance, Dusty picked up an acoustic guitar and began to intently listen to popular artists at the time such as George Strait, Alan Jackson and Garth Brooks.

 

Playing their music inspired Dusty to compose his own music. Within a year, Dusty wrote his first original song, “Thinking About You.” In early 2000, Dusty auditioned for Star Search in Lafayette, LA. His appearance generated a lot of publicity, including a newspaper article for the Abbeville Meridional. Shortly after, Dusty appeared on the Beaumont-based “Charlie Pruitt Show.”

 

Dusty first hit the recording studio in 2002, when he joined forces with another songwriter to produce his first demo CD “Frozen in the Moment.” An acoustic CD created in a home studio followed in 2006. Dusty recorded his first professional full band demo of "Doing the Best I Can" with Jack Saunders and White Cat Productions in November 2008.

 

In addition to writing songs and creating CDs, Dusty loves to perform for a live audience. One of Dusty’s dream gigs happened in January 2003. While on a trip to Nashville, Dusty performed at the legendary Blue Bird Café. Dusty has performed at several places around the Houston area over the years, but his favorite place to perform is in Nashville, TN at the Commodore Grill.

 

As a songwriter and member of the Nashville Songwriter's Association (NSAI), Dusty continues to hone his craft and write better songs about his life experience. Dusty has a very sentimental side with songs such as “Doing the Best I Can,” which was written about his cousin in the Air Force, and “Welcome to This Place,” a touching song written for his newborn daughter. But Dusty also has a fun side with songs such as “This Perfect Night,” written about a night out with his wife and “Make It Up As We Go,” which was written with Sherry Kai Kuybus. No matter what Dusty is singing, he always brings emotion to his lyrics and energy to his performances.

 

Dusty is also a Certified Public Accountant, as well as a father and a loving husband, who enjoys spending time with his family. He and his family fulfilled his life-long dream of living in the Nashville area when they moved to Franklin, TN in January 2013. Look for him out and about Music City!
