Nicole Donate, who sings professionally as Nicole Rose, is too young to have ever seen a concert by the Fabulous Burd Boys. But she's heard a lot about them.
The Fabulous Burd Boys are considered among New Jersey's most popular country music bands in the '60s and '70s.
They also brought many big-name country singers to their Hickory Grove Opry Farm near Califon, New Jersey.
Nicole Rose, 23, is grand niece of The Burd Boys and she's embarking on a career of her own which seems to be getting a shotgun start and has already spread beyond the borders of New Jersey.
