For the Jackson, Tennessee-based the Kernal it all began with a red Opry suit. Unearthed while scrounging through his attic, the red get-up carried almost mythical powers for the onetime English major.
And, soon, a personality to match was born. Known to some as a bass player for Jonny Fritz and Andrew Combs (in his pedestrian clothes), the cheekily anonymous Kernal has been cranking out country that's sweetly subversive on the sly for years, until John Paul White signed him to his Single Lock Records to release the sophomore effort LIGHT COUNTRY. The Kernal can write songs about Taco Bell with melodies as addictive as a cheesy gordita but built from a studied, intellectual point of view, with hints of gospel and lush Seventies rock à la Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.
