Kenny Hess has been deeply involved in the music industry since the early 80’s. Born in small-town Saskatchewan, he cut his teeth singing the songs of such greats as Charlie Pride, Kris Kristofferson and George Jones. Fast forward a few years, and here’s a guy who has established a multi-award-winning artist career opening for the likes of Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson.
‘The Songs That Wrote Country Music’ was a truly natural process for Kenny, evolving out of his deep and abiding love for classic country and his behind-the-scenes industry glimpses – from backstage green rooms to Nashville’s Music Row writer’s rooms and all stops in between.
With his band of award-winning musicians – Hess has created an extraordinarily entertaining show, based on the songs that grew the roots of country music and the impact of those iconic artists.

The one with the handlebar mustache and beard? That's Igor. Not only can he play the upright bass like the dickens, but he can sing beyond 3 octaves.
