Biography

Kurt Wooldridge's performance style is emotional high energy; there's nothing bland about this country boy.

Kurt’s perspective on country music is very simple “The traditional country music that has embraced folks for years has seemed to have gone to the wayside making room for a more rock and roll and mainstream Pop sound. I wanted to create a record that would be able to have music and lyrics that would be emotional and tell a story that would bring the listener into the song you know something country has always been about, you have to be able to relate to what your listening to”
