About Gary Kyle

TEXAS STRONG

Raised in Kingwood, TX, just outside of Houston, Gary grew up the youngest of six children in a very musically charged family. Gary’s father, who passed when Gary had just turned a year old, was a country/bluegrass performer for years, and his mother sang and performed in theatre. Gary’s life took a dramatic change at the age of 13, when Gary’s 19 year old vivacious, free-spirited brother, was diagnosed with Leukemia. He passed just months later. After that, life took on a whole new meaning for Gary. It shook him into the realization that life is too short and too precious to be taken for granted. Gary then made a vow to follow his heart and cherish each moment to the fullest. This passion for life later became the basis of the title track of his debut CD, aptly entitled “Livin”. When Gary was a senior in high school, his mother gave him his father’s guitar. Making good on a promise to his mother that he would attend college and earn a degree, Gary attended the University of North Texas in Denton where he majored in Marketing and Sociology. Music took precedence over academia, however, but after six years of college (no, he is not a doctor!) Gary earned his degree. Gary has a relentless passion for performing, and his unorthodox connection with the audience, leaves an undeniable mark on all who see him play.

Gary has released three studio albums: Livin, Turn this Life Around, and Texas Strong. He has had 4 singles charting in the top 30 on the Texas Charts. His title cut to his newest record “Texas Strong” is the theme song for the popular TV show Lone Star Roads with Justin Frazell. Gary is always writing new material and he is working on his fourth record. He has found a new love for producing and artist development and has been producing and writing for several other artists. If you haven’t seen a Gary Kyle show then you need to find out when he is in your area and mark it on your calendar! With a band second to none and an incredible energy on stage good times will be had by all.

Flips tonight in Fort Worth with chance Anderson! Show starts at nine ...

As a guitarist, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper’s cemetery in the back country. As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost.

I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.

I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn’t know what else to do, so I started to play.

The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I’ve never played before for this homeless man.

And as I played ‘Amazing Grace,’ the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my guitar and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full.

As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, “I never seen nothin’ like that before and I’ve been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.”

Apparently, I’m still lost…
