Nashville Recording Artist Kenny Brannan was born in Rising Star, Texas but who could have known that the boy from Rising Star would later become a RISING STAR!! Kenny is an awesome Country Singer, Songwriter and Lead Guitarist. He has a dynamic and energetic sound driving home both Traditional and New Country Music with attitude! He is received at each and every performance with a warm and powerful reception. Young and old alike just absolutely love Kenny's style of Country Music!!!
Kenny Brannan will definitely catch your attention all the way from his up-beat style Traditional Country to his Slow Heartfelt Ballads. Kenny's music is an extenstion of his heart and soul. Playing his music very well expressing his emotions in a way that makes others feel what he is relaying in his music as if it were the audiences feelings. Kenny's music will leave you captivated with each and every performance and leave you speechless when he stops.
We are very excited about Kenny's future in the Music Industry and introducing this very talented young man to the world. Kenny's guitar skills are nothing short of amazing. The channel running from his heart to his fingers is wide open for the world to hear. We and others have noticed an almost haunting sound when he plays guitar to the ballads he sings and also wonder if he has an extra set of hands on the strings of his guitar with the many beautiful notes he brings out when he plays. We realize that anyone who loves fine country guitar work owes it to themselves to go hear Kenny play! Kenny's vocals are truly a mirror to his soul. His vocal styling is truly unique. It's been said his voice is haunting, totally different from anyone else and once you hear his voice you don't forget it, It sticks with you!!
Musicians who have toured for over twenty-five years or more and has played with some of the great legends in this business can safely say that Kenny Brannan is one of the finest Country Artist that they have ever known. We also feel that Kenny's writing is not just more of the same. Today's country music for the most part so closely resembles the soft rock love songs of the '70's with steel guitar and fiddle added. Kenny Brannan's songs are truly country music and are a credit to the Traditions started by the great ones who are sadly leaving us now! You can look for great things from this young man in the near future!!!!!
