About the Event
Raised in Lubbock and Texas Hill Country, Noel McKay is a much acclaimed songwriter/recording artist now residing in Nashville. In 1993, he was discovered by songwriting legend Guy Clark while performing his songs at a venue in Kerrville, Texas. Clark’s mentorship has been a key component to Noel’s success, with songs recorded by Guy, Sunny Sweeney, Buffalo Gals, Melissa Carper, Sarah Borges and many others. In addition to writing solo, Noel has co-written songs with greats such as Richard Dobson, David Olney and Shawn Camp. Brennen Leigh also joined Noel in recent years as his songwriting partner AND duet partner, with their collaborations and US/European tours as McKay & Leigh, garnering wide acclaim.
“The songs of Noel McKay, they’re like those one of a kind items, CAREFULLY CRAFTED with their DOVETAILED JOINTS and BEVELED EDGES, and proudly engraved with a maker’s mark. They’re well-loved, and presented to the world without commercial concern, and more for the memories they hold, or that they will soon impart.” (Saving Country Music)
