Kyle’s greatest influences have been his family. Especially his Grandfather. Being an old cowboy himself, Kyle’s Grandfather introduced him to hard work, a man’s word is his bond and to “cowboy up”! Through this and mucking out horse stalls Kyle was introduced to the classics of country and western music. And at time bluegrass. Now Kyle’s Dad would have a hand in the southern rock, metal and country music as well.
At a young age Kyle wanted to sing with his Dad in church choir. But being to you he was told he would have to wait. Again the old “cowboy up” stirred in him and ever Sunday and Wednesday Kyle would approach the Pastor with the same idea that he wanted to sing. Finally at the age of 8 years of age, Kyle became the youngest member of the Gospel Light Baptist Church in Rock Hill, SC.

Upon the death of his Grandfather in 2015. Kyle sought out his dream to be a Country Music singer and make it in Nashville. His Grandfather left him and his brother a small savings bond as an inheritance. So with $6000 Kyle went and bought second hand mixers, PA’s, amps, guitar and other needed equipment. This former high school baseball star had decided to follow his dream. It’s said that he was asked why the sudden change. Kyle responded “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do first of all. But I remember a time PawPaw and I were riding somewhere in his old truck. Listening to Hank, Waylon or someone. We were both singing up a storm. After the song went off PawPaw looked at me and said he wanted to hear my voice coming out of that radio some day.”
