Nashville is coming to Kalamazoo! Kalamazoo native and country singer/songwriter Kyle Jennings hosts ‘Kyle Jennings & Friends – Nashville Storytellers’, a lineup of award-winning Nashville songwriters at the Kalamazoo State Theatre December 11, for a live acoustic songwriters’ showcase presented by Kalamazoo Mortgage.
The event features hit songwriters who have penned smash #1 hits for artists like Luke Combs, Eric Church, Blake Shelton, Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Joe Nichols, Easton Corbin, Montgomery Gentry, and many more! The evening focuses on the songwriters’ side of the country music; where writers take turns sharing the stories behind the songs and then perform their original versions of their hits in an engaging intimate setting.
“It’s really a unique and special experience. It’s a little bit of comedy, and little bit of music, some wild stories, and 100% entertainment! Shows like these are going on in dozens of locations every night in Nashville” Jennings says. “It’s one of the most defining experiences of Music City. Many of the hits I loved from country radio, I fell in love with the authenticity of the original performances by the writers and hearing the stories behind the songs. It’s what made me fall in love with songwriting and the songwriting process and I wanted to bring that experience to Kalamazoo.”
Performing with Jennings on December 11th are Wynn Varble (“Waitin’ On A Woman” – Brad Paisley, “A Little More Country Than That” – Easton Corbin), Tony Arata (“The Dance” – Garth Brooks, “Here I Am” – Patty Loveless) & Gary Hannan (“Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off” – Joe Nichols, “Back When I Knew It All” – Montgomery Gentry).
