The 3 Kings, the core of the Jason Aldean band, Kurt Allison, Tully Kennedy and Rich Redmond dive into Episode 8 of #PickRichsBrain. This brotherhood of top-notch musicians have stayed the course since 1998 and have forged a sound with Jason Aldean and Producer Michael Knox that has redefined the Nashville Country sound since 2005.
Rich, Kurt and Tully reflect on their beginnings, their tumultuous, yet very educational time with the now defunct band Rushlow, and how honesty and freedom with Jason Aldean have made an enormous difference in Jason’s records and live performances.
Their almost 20 year legacy has resulted in a myriad of income streams from producing artists including hits with Parmalee and Thompson Square with their company, New Voice Entertainment to writing hit songs like “Tip It On Back” by Dierks Bentley, “Seein’ Red” by Dustin Lynch and the title track to Jason’s 2016 record, “They Don’t Know”.
They also discuss the modern state of the music industry. “If you come here, you’ll quickly know if you truly want to play”, Tully says while ruminating on how it is a “failure business”.
After over 30 years of making a living making music, the 3 Kings are keeping it real, honest and don’t hold back.
