Kenny Evans

Biography

Music has always been a part of Kenny’s life. His grandmother Irene was a bluegrass musician and singer, and as a child he sang in a family quartet with his father, brother, and younger sister. The Evans Family Quartet toured the southeast doing concerts at churches, festivals, and theatres and also made guest appearances with Archie Campbell at the live Hee-Haw theatre in Pigeon Forge, TN.

In 1994, just three months after getting married Kenny signed with a booking agency out of Orlando Florida and quickly began a grueling tour schedule that would put him on the road for more than 250 days a year as 
the opening act for some of country music’s biggest stars including Kenny Chesney, Charlie Daniels, Lonestar, Sara Evans, Toby Keith, Tracy Byrd and many others.

In February 1998 Kenny signed a record deal in Nashville and released his debut album “When you love somebody” and just as his career was taking off tragedy struck as Kenny and his band were almost killed by a drunk driver while on tour. It took several months to recover from the accident, and in the spring of 2000 Kenny left the country music industry to serve the Lord. Kenny Evans has served churches in east, TN and south Florida as a student pastor, music minister, and associate pastor and since 2005 has traveled the nation as an evangelist singing and speaking in more than 100 Christian events each year.
