Last month, Antwon Tanner, who played Antwon “Skills” Taylor on the former CW series shared a throwback picture of him and Burton. Besides giving us major OTH flashbacks, the photo sparked a brilliant idea from Burton.
“My Twon!!!!! We were SUCH good singers that night!” Burton tweeted back to her former co-star. “Seriously, when are we starting our band???” she added.
A band between Peyton and Skills — um, we mean, Burton and Tanner — is such a great idea, and we really, really like the sound of these two making music together. Sure, on The CW drama, Peyton ran Tric and booked a lot of musical acts, but apparently in real life, Burton and Tanner can sing — or maybe just Burton can.
“You sounded amazing,” Tanner replied after Burton suggested they begin a band. “I only sounded ok bcuz the music was loud .”
If Burton thinks these two should join forces and create music, then we trust her. Plus, Tanner could always be her backup singer, if he isn’t as talented as Burton claims. Either way, we really wish there was footage from this night — then we could see who the real star of this fictional band would be!
In the meantime, we will just focus on the fact that there’s another One Tree Hill EyeCon Wilmington event in October, which will have Tanner reuniting with some of his fellow Ravens, including Chad Michael Murray and James Lafferty.
Okay now it’s your turn People’s Choice readers, would you listen to Burton and Tanner’s hypothetical band?
