This Country Star Wants to Make Your Friday Night One for the Books
This Friday, 106.5 The Wolf and Kanza Hall are proud to present country music star Brandon Lay! Performing his latest hit song "Yada Yada Yada" among many others, this show at Kanza Hall is one you can't miss. Start your weekend on a high note with Brandon Lay!
Growing up in Jackson, Tennessee, Brandon Lay lived out the songs of John Mellencamp, Alan Jackson and Bruce Springsteen. He played sports during the day, fixed up cars after school and eventually wrote down his experiences in song, telling not only his story, but the story of other kids raised in small town America.
Now signed to EMI Records Nashville, he's able to share those songs on a grand scale, beginning with his autobiographical debut single "Speakers, Bleachers and Preachers." Inspired directly by Brandon's life, the song spells out right in its title the three chief influences that shaped him. There was always country music on the radio, he played basketball, football and baseball, and his dad spread the gospel on Sundays as a minister.
"There are parallels between what I watched my dad do every Sunday morning and being onstage as a country singer," Brandon says. "He was able to tell stories and relate to people, and seeing him connect with people had a lot to do with my songwriting."
"I knew coming out of the gate as a new artist that my first single had to say a lot about who I am and where I come from. Hopefully, people will hear it and fill in their own blanks," Brandon continues. "That's my goal: for listeners to know that every line I'm singing, I've lived, and for them to find their own story in my songs."
Be there when Brandon brings down the house this Friday evening! General admission and VIP tickets are now available for purchase.
