More Praise for The Kernal from The Bluegrass Situation!

Today, our friends at The Bluegrass Situation premiered "Tennessee Sun", a song from LIGHT COUNTRY-- a new album due March 3rd from The Kernal.

On March 3, the Kernal will release his debut record, Light Country, officially introducing his breed of smart, often witty twang that infuses that sense of locomotive, gospel-tinged mystery. “Tennessee Sun,” premiering exclusively here, shows his skills at the lyrical ramble, conjuring up Bob Dylan and, in a certain kind of sonic onomatopoeia, a ‘70s-era refrain that just feels like those warm Tennessee rays kissing the skin. “Lettin’ go of everything that I don’t need on my way down,” he chants, and you believe him. The Kernal doesn’t need much to be convincing ... except, maybe, a red suit and a room full of people ready to dance.
