Kirk Holloway is a musician with a classic twang that sounds like Texas. The Texas native and his band veer towards old school country, giving a rowdy edge to their modern boot-stompin' songs. After a CEO on music row told him he wasn't on par with the Nashville sound, Holloway was forced to try something new, or give up. Like his heroes before him, Waylon Jennings & Merle Haggard, he chose the former. His departure from music row & the Nashville scene is documented with his debut EP, Lonesome in the Lone Star State. Produced & mixed by Ryan Michael of the Roomsounds, the EP is raw & honest. "I was blown away by the songwriting ability of a 21-year-old," Michael says of Holloway. Despite being shot down by Nashville, Holloway has found success in his home state of Texas. Holloway played his EP release show to a sold-out room at the Free Man in Dallas, TX. The EP received 4 out of 5 stars from Country Music People Magazine & his songs have received international radio play. All of which indicates this young man is one to watch.
Pairs well with: Charlie Robison, Robert Earl Keen, & Billy Joe Shaver
