Kendell Marvel rockin’ The Shed stage during Smoky Mountain Bike Week!
Acclaimed solo artist. Grammy-winning songwriter. Road warrior. By the time Kendell Marvel moved into a 200-year-old farmhouse in the Tennessee countryside in 2021, he’d already spent more than two decades expanding the boundaries of modern-day country music.
Albums like Lowdown and Lonesome and Solid Gold Sounds were showcased for his blend of southern twang and super-sized vocals, filled with songs that split the difference between honky-tonk country and roadhouse rock & roll. Marvel’s catalog reaches far beyond his solo work, too, with artists like George Strait, Gary Allan, and Chris Stapleton all landing Top 40 hits with his compositions. The man had clearly left his mark. If he’d chosen to celebrate his new home by taking a few months off, the vacation would have been well-earned.
Of course, you can take the man out of Nashville, but you can’t take the Nashville out of the man. Hours after moving in, Marvel unpacked his guitars and quickly got to work in his new space, writing songs that blended timeless textures with contemporary insight. He began with “Younger Me,” a nostalgic ode to young manhood and resilience that became a Grammy-winning hit for the song’s co-writers, Brothers Osborne. He kept writing during the months that followed, fine-tuning the mix of country-rockers, soul standouts, and bluesy ballads that now fill his third solo effort, Come On Sunshine.
