Through an in studio interview promoting the Sandy Lee Watkins Songwriters Festival, I first met and heard the music of, Nashville songwriter,  Kerry Kurt Phillips. Now, you will have a chance to experience the the musical genius in Vincennes, IN at a free concert hosted by WVUT PBS at the Red Skelton Theatre.

Kerry Kurt Phillips claims to be from both Henderson, Kentucky and Vincennes, Indiana, According to his website,

Kerry moved to Nashville in 1988. Two weeks later he was signed as a staff writer for the Larry Gatlin-owned publishing company, Texas Wedge Music. His very first cut came two and a half years later when George Jones recorded the classic, “Where the Tall Grass Grows”.


Kerry Kurt’s biggest hits include the George Jones Smash, “I Don’t Need Your Rockin’ Chair”, Joe Diffie’s, “Is It Cold In Here”, “Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox”, “In My Own Backyard” and “Pickup Man” which spent a record 5 weeks at number 1. Tim McGraw’s “Down On the Farm” and “Maybe We Should Just Sleep On It”, are both products of Kerry Kurt’s pen.

We always loved having Kerry in our studio. He is a true southern gentleman with a dash of ornery, which makes for great radio. Since the concert will be an interactive show with Kerry telling his stories and talking wth the audience, you are in for a real treat. I can promise you it will be a night you will never gorget.

Here are some videos of Kerry performing LIVE in the WKDFQ studios.




I love me some KKP!
