On this episode of Roger the Wild Child Show: Nashville, we are joined by actor, Callum Kerr, of the new series on Fox "Monarch" and Nashville recording artist, KC Johns!
Callum Kerr is an actor/musician originally from Edinburgh, Scotland. After moving to Texas at 17, Callum has been splitting his time between Austin and London until recently, when he moved to Nashville. You can see Callum in the upcoming country music series Monarch (Fox), where he’ll play country music singer Wade Stellings. Callum is also currently working on releasing music here in Nashville.
With powerhouse pipes that take you on a whiskey-soaked jaunt to your favorite honky-tonk in the absolute best way possible, KC Johns’ music is as infectious and dynamic as she is. Think Miranda Lambert meets Sheryl Crow with a touch of Brandi Carlisle, and you’ve got an artist with a voice all her own, tied tight around songs that make you feel like you’ve known her forever.
With deep roots in the Blues capital of the world, KC grew up in Memphis, where she was baptized in soul and fell hard for the stage, the spotlight, and songs that make the world go ’round.
“Music has always been that one thing in my life that digs up a smile when I feel like I’m buried under the rest of life,’” says KC. “I want other people to feel the same way.”
Having discovered her stage legs young, KC jumped feet-first into this business called music, performing everywhere from Dollywood, where she was featured in Dolly Parton’s “Christmas Coat of Many Colors,” to cruise ships around the world. After performing in ports throughout the Atlantic, the Caribbean, and everywhere in between, she made her way up the mainstream music ladder, opening for artists like Luke Bryan, Chris Young, Randy Houser, and Trailer Choir.
2022 was the continuation of her page-turner of a story, starting with the January release of a new single and video, “Confused,” co-written with Timme Angsten and Tim Baumgartner and produced by GRAMMY-nominated producer and songwriter Billy Smiley (WhiteHeart, Johnny Cash, and Petra). “Confused” follows her popular 2021 single release, “Whiskey Break,” which was featured in a nationally distributed documentary about the legendary venue, the Gorge, where nearly every major touring artist has played for the last 50 years. “Confused” made its way on to radio playlists in a growing list of markets across the country, cracked Nashville’s Music Row charts and climbed well over 100 spots up the respected rungs of the influential industry ranking.
2022 has already seen the digital release of KC’s 2021 full album, Thunder, recorded at the legendary Sound Kitchen in Franklin, Tennessee. The digital release features three songs previously released only on the vinyl version of Thunder plus KC’s brand-new recording of “Desperado,” best known for being recorded by legends Linda Ronstadt and the Eagles. The collection is a result of an artist who knows who she is, what she wants to say, and the best way to say it.
KC Johns’ new single release, “FAMOUS,” touches the heart of why she sings. For KC, this song immediately brought her fans to mind. This wasn’t a song about romance for KC. It’s about the passionate faces in the audience every night. It is an anthem to the people who show up, support, download, listen and love KC and her music. The song is KC’s message to them – “You make me feel famous!”
