Gary Kyle's "Rewind White" Coming Sept 15

Nashville, TN (August 9, 2017)-Songwriter, performer and producer Gary Kyle wears many hats, just never on stage.  He’s a generational Texan raising a big family and a big career with  a couple of acclaimed albums under his belt and five kids underfoot.  A consummate songwriter  and a robust entertainer, Gary’s live show echoes his deep Texas roots and the storied music scene that thrives there, and his writing style is the seasoned recipe found largely in the music city of Nashville.  It’s this kind of 50/50 concoction that removes all regional borders leaving Gary free to move about the “country.” It’s also the basis for his decision to release his brand new studio album in parts.  On September 15th, 2017, Gary will release Part I: “Rewind White,” a 6-song EP that projects the spirit of his big Texas soul.

Growing up just outside of Houston under the tutelage of musical parents, a very young Gary was scratching out lyrics from the time he could put pen to paper.  His urgency to write was a constant companion captaining him through a life infused with rich homemade love, personal family tragedy and a deep respect for the time allotted us in this life. He did well in school, went to college and got a sales job accompanied by a big devoted paycheck, yet nothing gave him the peace he found in creating music, a beckoning that rose above the cacophony of a “responsible life.” So, he changed direction towards his true north and over the last few years released two studio projects that saw four Top 30 singles on the Texas music charts including “Texas Strong,” the theme song for the nationally syndicated TV show “Lone Star Roads” with host and revered radio programmer, Justin Frazell.

“Rewind White” represents the Texas side of Gary Kyle. The first single “Tornado” characterizes the overall climate of this bona fide country music release and is already sweeping through radio and headed up the Texas Regional Radio chart.  When it comes to putting on the old cowboy boots and heading to the dance floor, Gary does it just right like on the rambunctious “So Good So Far” and the slightly more laidback “Late Night Runaround.”  And when it comes to the more tender spots of the human condition, Gary does it even better.  With a voice the listener can actually feel, he escorts you right to the barstool for a drink full of emptiness on “Champagne.” His precision with balladry is a well-honed skill that leaves no doubt that he has faced down demons of his past.  That is never more evident than on “Whiskey Dents,” a sober reflection about the ripple effect of an alcohol induced state, and by far the most powerful song of the lot. Overall, “Rewind White” is a trip down the familiar roads where Gary grew up in Southeast Texas.  In the spring of 2018 he invites you to take a trip with him around the Nashville landscape with the release of Part II “Rewind Blue.”

Miranda Lambert at Whitewater Amphitheater

Miranda Lambert's Highway Vagabond tour made a stop in New Braunfels for two nights in a row at Whitewater Amphitheater. Wade Bowen opened both nights at Whitewater, and will continue on with Miranda for two shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado in the form of he and Randy Rogers' Hold My Beer Tour.

It was a great night and I was told despite the fact they've had numerous shows sell out, they were expecting record bodies through the gates for the two shows. Wade Bowen is one of New Braunfels' many talented residents, and his opening for Miranda was not by any stretch a decision made at the last minute. In fact, Wade told a story about how when Miranda was 16 and would frequent Bowen's shows with her mother, she told Wade that when she one day made it big, she would have him open for her. I'm not sure how seriously he took her at the time, but her promise has come to fruition multiple times over. Both Wade Bowen and Miranda Lambert put on fantastic, high energy shows.

Miranda's last stop at Whitewater Amphitheater was in June of 2010 with her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour which also included Wade Bowen and a guest appearance of another New Braunfels resident Cody Canada. It was later that year in October when Cody and his former band Cross Canadian Ragweed played their final show ever at Joe's on Weed Street in Chicago.

One final note... Because of a misunderstanding on my part, I just happened to get kicked out of the photography pit by security shortly after Miranda's set began. I'm by no means a professional music journalist, and didn't understand that the instructions "front of house" meant NOT in the pit. They graciously let me stay at the venue and take more photos and videos, but you live and you learn, and I hope the kind people at camp Miranda and Whitewater will accept my humble apologies for not following the instructions better.

Here are a few shots from the Friday night show!
