ABOUT BRANDON KINNEY
With his skewed images, offbeat personalities, unpredictable phrasing, songwriter Brandon Kinney doesn't take himself, or the world around him, too seriously. “Seriousness is not in my personality,” he admits. “I have been able to get in the room with some of the best craftsmen in the business; I have been able to share my sense of easy going with their seriousness.” This is what drew peermusic to sign him to a publishing deal in 2016.
Kinney has been influenced by artists like Roger Miller, John Anderson, Don Williams and John Conlee, particularly drawn to songs with lighter themes or blue-collar subject matter in the traditional form of the genre.
His journey as a songwriter has garnered him cuts with artists like Jason Aldean (“Drowns The Whiskey,” “Set It Off”), Cole Swindell (“No Can Left Behind,” “Reason To Drink,” “Love You Too Late,” “Should’ve Ran After You”), Luke Bryan (“Beer In The Headlights”), Justin Moore (“I’d Want It To Be Yours,” “Off The Beaten Path”), Chase Rice (“Dirt Road Communication”), Chris Janson (“Right In The Middle”), Willie Nelson (“Ain’t Goin’ Down On Brokeback Mountain”), Craig Campbell (“Outta My Head”) and Randy Houser, whose single “Boots On” went to #2 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart.
