Pete Kennedy Wraps Up His International Tour With Impressive Company

Pete Kennedy Wraps Up His International Tour With Impressive Company

 (Nashville, TN) Irish Singer/Songwriter Pete
Kennedy brought his international tour to a close earlier this month
after a 3-month stint opening for incredible pop icon/composer Neil Sedaka and Philadelphia soul group The Stylistics.
It was the experience of a lifetime for Kennedy, who played 27 shows to
an audience of nearly 36,000 people across the UK between October and
December. Kennedy also was invited to join national and regional radio
stations, RTE (Ireland) BBC (UK), along with a number of local stations
in the UK.
 
“Pete Kennedy was truly a crowd pleasing warm up act and a delight
to have on tour,” Sedaka says of his experience with this burgeoning
country artist.
 

After spending several busy months in Nashville this year filming
his debut music video and performing at the fan-filled CMA Fest, the
opportunity to tour closer to home was a welcome one for Pete. With the
holidays fast approaching, he’ll use his newfound downtime to
rejuvenate for what is sure to be an eventful new year.
 
“This tour has been amazing and I am so grateful to have been a
part of it,” said Pete. I am taking away many new fans that I would not
have been able to reach if not for the Sedaka/Stylisitics tour.”
 
Pete Kennedy is the walking, talking, singing embodiment
of how the world sees the people of Ireland—repeatedly bouncing back
from tragedy and finding inspiration in music. After a lifetime of
working solely to support his family, Pete was finally able to pursue
his love of music in 2008. Foraging his path by playing local pubs in
Germany and the UK, Pete began to make a name for himself in the world
of country music. His entrepreneurial style resulted in the formation of
his own label, KEMC Records and his first EP. From there, he caught
the eye of CMR Nashville’s Lee Williams, who brought Pete to Nashville
to play his first show at Cadillac Ranch as a representative of Ireland
for the International Artist Showcase prior to the 2011 CMA Awards. He
has since released his first album, The Nashville Sessions Volume 1,
which has received critical acclaim and was named UK Album of the Year
at the 2012 British Country Music Awards. The music video for his
British Country Music Award nominated single, “I Am The One,” can be
viewed here.
