Our first concert series will feature singer songwriter Bryan Kennedy, who will travel to Columbus to tell his stories and share his music including three #1 radio hits he wrote for Garth Brooks: “Good Ride Cowboy,” “The Beaches of Cheyenne,” and “American Honky Tonk Bar Association.”

Bryan began his musical quest as a song plugger for his father, and later for Ricky Skaggs, and The Statler Brothers. He attributes his writing know how to hearing all the great songs he got to hear daily while being a son to a legendary record producer Jerry Kennedy, and to growing up in the same house with a mom (Linda Kennedy) who was singing and recording records as a teenager, and two brothers who would become most influential in Bryan’s life and in his career. (Gordon and Shelby Kennedy)

Bryan has written several songs that appear on other artists CD’s like; Rick Trevino, The Derailers, Deryl Dodd, Chuck Wagon and the Wheels, and Jerry Reed, and others. He also has written other songs that appear on numerous Garth Brooks records.  In addition, Bryan opened up for Garth Brooks with good friend, Dan Roberts performing in front of millions of people. Bryan says that all they really did was “provide back ground music for those buying T-shirts,” and is forever grateful to Garth for the ride.

Bryan’s show is totally “HIM”. He is hard to describe but with influences ranging from Merle Haggard to Bill Cosby, you will no doubt understand where he gets his sense of humor as well as his ability to tug on your heartstrings. You will leave most entertained and refreshed with a smile in your heart.

We are extremely thankful and excited to partner with these two great central Ohio establishments in our musical fundraising events.  Through the efforts of A Christmas To Cure Cancer and Pelotonia, we can help OSU’s James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute find a cure for cancer.  If we all band together, we can increase the tempo for cancer research and speed the discovery of a cure!
