3381 Southall Rd, Franklin, TN 37064, USA
The Still House Sessions will thrill whiskey and music lovers alike with a series of monthly shows in one of Tennessee’s premiere distilleries, the Leiper's Fork Distillery. On June 28th we welcome #1 hit songwriter and acclaimed Americana artist Kevin Welch to the Still House Sessions.
Texas/Oklahoma songwriter and performer Kevin Welch is the sole songwriter on Chris Stapleton’s current single, “Millionaire.” The song was up for Best Country Solo Performance at the Grammy Awards in February.
Originally written and recorded as the title track to Kevin Welch’s 2002 solo release, the single comes from Chris Stapleton’s From ‘A’ Room: Vol. 2 album released on December 1st, 2017. The song was also covered by Chris LeDoux on his 2002 record After the Storm, and soul legend Solomon Burke on his country music tribute record entitled Nashville from 2006.
Originally from Oklahoma and revered throughout the Texas and Red Dirt music scene, Kevin Welch is no stranger to having songs enter the mainstream country music charts. He first moved to Nashville in 1978, and his songs have been recorded by the likes of Don Williams, Ricky Skaggs, Moe Bandy, Waylon Jennings, Patty Loveless, Garth Brooks, and others.
Kevin has just released his latest record Dust Devil in October 2018. Eight years since the release of his last album, Patch of Blue Sky, Welch assembled some of the world’s finest musicians and returned to the studio in Nashville to make his astonishing new record, Dust Devil. Featuring ten original songs, Welch’s words expertly guide the listener through life, loss and redemption.
Releasing a dozen records over the years, most for Dead Reckoning Records, the label he co-founded in Nashville in the mid 90s, Welch’s music has carried him around the planet, earning him deep respect in the musical community and fans from every walk of life, including the former President of the United States, Barack Obama.
