Kevin was born in raised in Carthage TN, 45 miles east of Nashville, and was singing from the womb! Learning guitar at the age of 9, Kevin began performing with various bands and groups in the Middle Tennessee area, playing & singing country, rock, blues, gospel, and everything in between. After high school, Kevin attended Belmont University in Nashville where he majored in music and spent lots of time recording in the campus studios.
After college, he hit the road as a touring guitarist, working for many major national acts such as Mark Wills, Collin Raye, Andy Griggs, Wade Hayes, Buddy Jewell, Jeff Bates, & Trent Willmon, just to name a few. He also spends a lot of time these days as a recording guitarist & producer for many of Nashville’s finest singer/songwriters & artists. Yet he still finds time to perform locally with his own band, Kevin Key & The Showstoppers, and hopes to have some original music recorded and available later in 2012.
