(Nashville, TN) Irish Singer/Songwriter Pete Kennedy brought his international tour to a close earlier this month after a 3-month stint opening for incredible pop icon/composer Neil Sedaka and Philadelphia soul group The Stylistics. It was the experience of a lifetime for Kennedy, who played 27 shows to an audience of nearly 36,000 people across the UK between October and December. Kennedy also was invited to join national and regional radio stations, RTE (Ireland) BBC (UK), along with a number of local stations in the UK.

“Pete Kennedy was truly a crowd pleasing warm up act and a delight to have on tour,” Sedaka says of his experience with this burgeoning country artist.

After spending several busy months in Nashville this year filming his debut music video and performing at the fan-filled CMA Fest, the opportunity to tour closer to home was a welcome one for Pete. With the holidays fast approaching, he’ll use his newfound downtime to rejuvenate for what is sure to be an eventful new year.

“This tour has been amazing and I am so grateful to have been a part of it,” said Pete. I am taking away many new fans that I would not have been able to reach if not for this tour.”

Pete Kennedy is the walking, talking, singing embodiment of how the world sees the people of Ireland—repeatedly bouncing back from tragedy and finding inspiration in music. After a lifetime of working solely to support his family, Pete was finally able to pursue his love of music in 2008. Foraging his path by playing local pubs in Germany and the UK, Pete began to make a name for himself in the world of country music. His entrepreneurial style resulted in the formation of his own label, KEMC Records and his first EP. From there, he caught the eye of CMR Nashville’s Lee Williams, who brought Pete to Nashville to play his first show at Cadillac Ranch as a representative of Ireland for the International Artist Showcase prior to the 2011 CMA Awards. He has since released his first album, The Nashville Sessions Volume 1, which has received critical acclaim and was named UK Album of the Year at the 2012 British Country Music Awards.
