Based in the halfway point between two Tennessee music meccas, The Kernal is apart yet plugged into the fertile East Nashville music scene. A Southern gentleman with an old soul who is tied deeply to the legacy and showmanship of the wandering musician and the historic Grand Ole Opry, the Kernal released his album, LIGHT COUNTRY, on March 3, 2017 on Alabama label Single Lock Records. Along with his band, the New Strangers, the Kernal tours the country with his homegrown brand of Southern mystique, including recent tours with friend and fan John Paul White.
You will also see and hear The Kernal this weekend in his other incarnation as a bass player with Andrew Combs. But LIGHT COUNTRY introduces us to a funny, whip-smart songwriter and musical stylist on these original tracks.
