Because of this, his influences span several generations. From the boot-scootin’, honky-tonk sounds of Brooks and Dunn, George Strait and Hank Jr., to modern day hits of Thomas Rhett, Eric Church, and Keith Urban. His songs combine his songwriting, performing abilities, and work ethic, along with his genuine love and appreciation of country music as whole, and you have someone who can compete with Nashville’s finest.
2018 got momentum started for Kevin and his own music career. Kevin independently wrote his first single, “Hell of a Good Time”, which captures the memories of Kevin and his buddies growing up through late high school and college. It is the first single expected off his is debut EP, Lookin' For A Party-- expected to be released in 2020; and the song reached #15 on the New Country Artists Charts.
On Nov 29, 2019 Kevin released "Lookin' For A Party", his second single and title-track of the debut EP. "[Lookin' for a Party] is the life of a musician on the road-- a life I've lived since I was 16," Kevin says. "When you are out there, and you're going city to city... You see a lot of things... and a lot of interesting people. Literally the Class A's to the bottom of the barrel-- the rough ones! This song puts them all in one room together. Some are just there for the beer and some are lookin' for a party. That is how it goes in the dives and the clubs! You see all of them."
