Kenny Foster’s unorthodox career has seen him sharing the stage with artists including Buddy Miller, Kacey Musgraves, Patty Griffin, Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris and Old Dominion, and appearing in numerous episodes of ABC’s Nashville and even in Super Bowl commercials alongside Sheryl Crow and Danica Patrick. He was named one of the “Top 10 New Artists You Need to Know” by Rolling Stone and has been highlighted in the New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today, and Forbes. The critically acclaimed Deep Cuts (2017) album expanded Kenny’s reach further than even he could have imagined. After touring to 18 countries in the following years the release of his newest effort, Somewhere in Middle America (2022), addresses the beauty and the limitations, the experiences and the challenges, facing those Midwesterners who, like him, carry a complicated relationship to their hometowns and the polarizing mindsets that increasingly define our times. Born and raised in Joplin, Missouri, the acclaimed and innovative artist didn’t set out to make this complex and deeply personal territory the focus of the record, but gradually became aware of what was feeling most urgent to him. The results merge country storytelling, singer/songwriter intimacy, and rock & roll intensity—the place where pedal steel and banjos meet power chords. The first single ‘Somewhere In Middle America’ had it’s World Radio Premier on BBC Radio 2’s “The Country Show with Whispering Bob Harris”. His second single, ‘Poor Kids’, a premier on Absolute Radio Country, and his third single ‘Copy, Paste, Repeat’ earned him a British Country Music Award for ‘International Single of the Year’.
