It’s no secret: Kyle Daniel has been rocking it since we last spoke to him! We’re not the only ones who have noticed, though. Rolling Stone recently said he has “the gravely twang of Steve Earl with Chris Stapleton’s range, plus bigger hooks.” They are spot on.
We had the opportunity to interview Kyle at this year’s CMA Fest. Check out the exciting news he had to tell us about here:
Kyle’s second EP, titled What’s There to Say? is now out and it’s brimming with stories of being a touring musician, of relationships that just didn’t work out, and of addiction. In fact, the Kentucky native’s single “Born to Lose,” was inspired by people he knew in his hometown of Bowling Green.
“We live in a time in which addiction has somehow impacted all of our lives,” he told Rolling Stone. “I felt the need to discuss the hardships of this crisis, without painting it in a negative light, coming from a place or understanding and acceptance.”
Kyle has been performing from young age, winning the Southern Kentucky Blues Society Blues Challenge and becoming a finalist at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. He later won “Nashville’s Best Guitarist” at the 102.9 Buzz Rock Awards. The future is looking very bright for him! The talented musician credits Gregg Allman, Chris Stapleton, and Jason Isbell as his inspirations.
