I grew up playing music around the kitchen table on Saturday nights when the relatives would come over for supper. Hank, Merle, and George songs filled the house in addition to the laughter and great food. Clearly my roots are in classic country music and because of that, there is no hiding that country twang in my voice.
I love to sing the traditional music of Emmy Lou Harris, Tanya Tucker, Kathy Mattea, and Tammy Wynette. I take great pleasure in keeping the classic country sound alive in playing the country greats!
What a journey it has been to team up with Harlan Allen in Aces & Eights since October 2015. I bring to the duo banjo, mandolin, and guitar; play some better than others, but love them all nonetheless. One could say that Kimberly Kaye is addicted to country music and she would respond, “Yes I would have to agree.” Long live classic country music!
