Kyle Perkins Steps Forward

Kyle Perkins - Take Me BackAfter solidly backing up JD Crowe and the New South and American Drive on bass, as well as playing some dates now with Kenny and Amanda Smith, Kyle Perkins is stepping front and center.

His new CD, Take Me Back, is available for pre-order by contacting Kyle on Facebook. And he expects to have a second CD available in late summer or early fall.

“If you’re a fan of traditional bluegrass and country music, I think you’ll thoroughly enjoy this record,” he said. “I am so blessed to have so many great friends in the business who helped me out on this.”

Among the powerhouse vocalists on Take Me Back are Steve Gulley, Bradley Walker, Dwight McCall, Keith Garrett, Kenny Smith, Mike and Jeff Parker, Ronnie Bowman, Dustin Prytle, Eli Johnston, Larry Stephenson, Amanda Smith, David Parmley, Kati Penn Williams and Jr. Williams. I haven’t heard any of the music from this project yet, but that list of names (and others) suggests a lot of rich harmonies.

Kyle expects to have copies in hand by the end of  the month or the beginning of February.
