Born
in the mountains of Kingsport, Tennessee on July 10, 1965, Ken Mellons
and his family soon packed up and moved to Music City USA where he grew
up on the standard honky tonk heroes. Those heroes included: Keith
Whitley, Vern Gosdin, George Jones,  Merle Haggard and Lefty
Frizzell.  Ken played guitar, sang at school talent shows and made his
way in the clubs after his high school graduation. 
Ken
was a featured performer at Opryland USA where he caught the eye of
impresarios Hal Durham and Bud Wendall.  This led him to a prized Friday
night spot on the Grand Ole Opry.  Impressed by one single performance,
the general manager of the Grand Ole Opry invited Ken to make an
appearance.  Not only was he invited back once, but numerous times from
1989-1992.  While most young people Ken’s age were away studying at
college, Ken was honing his craft as a singer, songwriter and
entertainer.
Music
producer Jerry Cupit took notice and a deal with Epic Records was
sealed in 1992.  Ken’s self-titled debut album was released one year
later.  The single, “Jukebox Junkie,” was a smashing hit and continued
to receive airplay for the remainder of the decade. 
In
1995, “Where Forever Begins,” followed up his debut success.  Ken
signed his second major label deal with Curb records in 1997 where he
issued the “Best of Ken Mellons” in 2001.  A couple of years later, the
successful single, “Mr. DJ” was issued.  In 2004, he released “Sweet” on
the Home Records label which featured the single, “Paint Me a
Birmingham.” 

Ken then decided in 2005 to concentrate on one of his best projects ever, his son Kade.  He
left the road to be home with his family and continued to pen songs for
such artists as George Strait, Dierks Bentley, Hank Williams, Jr. and
Mark Chesnutt just to name a few.
  In
October of 2010 he released his debut bluegrass album entitled, “Rural
Route” on his own label, Jukebox Junkie Records to much acclaim in the
Bluegrass world.
  Ken
and his wife, fiddle player Kristy Jo have since added another Mellons
to their patch, a son by the name of Kash Whitley, born in February of
2012. Ken is currently touring in the US and abroad as part of the
“Keepin’ It County Tour” and is performing songs off his latest country
album “Just What I’m Wantin’ To Do” as well as all his other hits.
