Tennessee native Kyle Elliott, a country singer/songwriter, once split his time between sports teams and singing in vocal groups throughout high school. He eventually picked up the guitar whilst attending college at Middle Tennessee State University and began writing songs thereafter.

Since releasing his debut single ‘Anymore’ in April last year, Elliott has released a steady stream of singles ever since. His latest offering is a duet with friend and fellow country singer/songwriter Stephanie Nash called ‘Never Break’. Elliott recently had a chat with AMNplify about the new single and more, check it out below!

Who or what inspired you to pursue a career in music?

My mother is more than likely the reason I have a passion for music. She is a choir teacher for my hometown high school and was the music director for my church as a kid. So I was always around music.

.

Who are your main musical influences?

My musical influences are Chris Stapleton, Chris Young, Randy Travis, Josh Turner and Luke Combs.

.

What inspired ‘Never Break’?

‘Never Break’ was brought to me by my friend Stephanie Nash, who provides the female vocal on the track. She had a verse and a chorus to the song when she brought it to me. We sat down and took both the male and female perspective of a broken relationship that you once may have thought could never break, but in reality did.

.

How does ‘Temptation’ differ to your current single?

‘Temptation’ is very different from my normal style of writing; it was a different day writing ‘Temptation’. It’s not a true story from me, but I feel as though everyone has certain temptation in their life and that anyone can relate to it.

.

What inspires your song writing?

Normally my inspiration is based around the mood I’m in when I sit down to write. So, if I’m in a good mood normally it’s something happy. However, sometimes something will be weighing on my heart or mind and writing is a way of expression. Music is also the perfect form of self expression.

Have you or do you have plans to release an EP?

I am planning on releasing an EP. After ‘Never Break’, I don’t plan on putting anything out until my EP releases. I’m hoping for a release time in early spring 2019, but things happen and ideas change so here’s to hopeful thinking!

.

What makes you different to similar sounding artists?

I like to think that I don’t sound too much like anyone else; certain characteristics set me apart from other artists. I think that my personal touch in my music and the emotional connection I have with music makes me a game changer. I feel like most artists like their music and live it sometimes, but may or may not lose sight of the music that connects them to the people that listen to it. I don’t write my music for just me but for others that I hope can relate as well.

.

What has been your most memorable career highlight to date?  

The first time I got to play at The Bluebird Cafe was pretty magical. The thought of the people who have played at that venue, on that stage was just majestic. I always enjoy going back and feeling the home for singer songwriters.

.

What is something you would like to achieve career-wise that you haven’t done yet?

As many other artists do, I work a full time job to support my musical dream. The goal is to be self sufficient as an artist and live off of the music. That is the dream!

.

If you could play any venue in the world, where would it be and why?

I think every country artists dream is to play at the Grand Ole Opry! I’ve been going there since I can remember; especially back when Opryland was open. It’s just such an iconic staple in country music and once you’ve played the Opry, you’ve made it!
