Kenny James & Friends

Album Notes

Kenny James retired from life as a Network Administrator in a mid-size mid-western town in late 2016. He immediately returned to the life he had given up years before – as a singer/musician/entertainer and sometimes songwriter. He and his wife Donna sold the family home, bought an RV and began looking for a place where the musical tastes fit the music that had always been in his heart. Even though traditional country music had been starved from the airwaves, it was still loved by many and he knew he could find an audience who would share his musical tastes. And where better to look than in the Hill Country of Texas! Kenny spent as much time as he could listening to and playing with the many of the outstanding artists in and around the Bandera, Texas area and this album is in large part derived from the musical legacy of that area. Kenny went to his son, Ken Pearsall, who worked at a recording school in Madison, WI, to engineer the tracks and he went to his many friends to lend their talents to the recordings. Many had played country music most of their lives. For all involved, this was a labor of love. You will find a list of the musicians and the instruments they played on the liner notes on the album and below. We all hope you enjoy the music!
