After playing to 1.3 million fans in 2015, Kenny is back to the music. He has spent the last several months writing and seeking songs in Austin, the islands, and the road. Hes also joined with longtime co-producer Buddy Cannon (Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard) in the studio in Los Angeles and Nashville.
You have to take time to live and breathe, to fill up your tanks to be creative, says Kenny. Otherwise, youre just on a treadmill churning out what youve already done... Who needs that? For me, especially after the success of The Big Revival, I want to move the music, the songs, the discussion forward!
For the new album, Kenny is working with many noteworthy songwriters like David Lee Murphy and Allison Moorer, as well as a few surprises.
Theres a moment you feel a record grab hold, and take shape, Kenny says. You can have great songs and not have an album. You can have a killer record that wont move people on the radio. The idea is to balance both, then hopefully create something that does both, that also says something as a whole. I think were on our way.
Kenny has created trends instead of following them since his breakthrough No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems and When the Sun Goes Down. Look for new music sometime this spring and get tickets for the upcoming Spread the Love Tour HERE.
