Producer Kenny R. is proud of his Emmy!If you’re a Nashville based songwriter, singer or musician, it’s almost impossible to not know Kenny. The top writers and artists in town use him regularly as both an engineer as well as a producer. His client list includes Tommy Barnes, Paul Overstreet, Don Goodman, Royce Porter, Buddy Jewell, Freddie Weller, Buddy Brock, Donny Kees, Anthony Smith, Will Nance, Bobby Pinson, Casey Bethard, Richie McDonald, Craig Morgan, Jamie O’Neal, Rebecca Lynn Howard, Heidi Newfield, “The Roys”, Ryan Casper, Charlie Rivers, Darby Ledbetter, Eric Stone, Mark Mulligan…just to name a few.Confidently focused and forward moving at all times, Kenny instinctively knows what singers need and precisely what it takes to make them comfortable and successful in the studio. Amateurs and professionals are equally at home with him. And speaking of the studio… the studio that he uses for recording music is his own. Kenny knows every wire and every piece of equipment intimately. He designed it, he built it, he knows what to use for every unique situation. Six isolation rooms (including world class drums) use state of the art preamps, EQ’s and the finest microphones available.The vibe at Kenny’s place is casual and musical. And perhaps the best compliment Kenny can be given is that his demos sound like radio ready masters. And his masters, sound perfectly brilliant. He has that intangible certain something that makes him a master at his craft.
Ray B. working his magic at the mixing board.If you listen to producer Ray B talk about his craft, you will hear words like “heart” and “soul”, “listening” and “communicating”, “magic” and “truth”. His heart and soul are devoted to finding the soul of the project, the heart of the artist. He knows that if he’s done his job well, you will ultimately not notice him at all. That’s OK, that’s a great producer. As Ray says, “An album is a collection of works and the artistry that makes an album special is making great recordings of great songs but songs where every word means something to the artist and ultimately to the listener. It’s certainly not about plugging the singer into my creation.”Ray’s credits include: Billy Dean’s Let Them Be Little album [Curb Records] Billy Dean The Christ “A Song for Jospeh” [Curb Records], Molson Road Trip, Regis and Kelly promotion, 615 Music’s Contemporary Country, “Silent Night” (duet, Billy Dean and Dolly Parton), “Little Drummer Boy,” “Oh Holy Night,” “What Child is This,” and “Away in a Manger,” all for Billy Dean. Swinging for the Fence”, “I’ll Race You to the Bottom”, “The Christ” recently recorded by Dean on Curb Records.Music Director, Vocalist and Bassist: A graduate of Lambuth University in Jackson, TN, Ray earned a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance. He’s served as Billy Dean’s music director on his Let Them Be Little Tour.
There’s a reason why Dolly Parton seeks out Kent’s abilities when she goes after a new project: he’s great. Housed in one of the most elegant studios in Nashville, Kent can inject major magic into the simplest tune. His roots are pedigree perfect, supporting some of the biggest stars in Nashville such as, Reba McEntire, Kenny Rogers, Brooks and Dunn, The Oak Ridge Boys, Keith Whitley, Lee Greenwood & Travis Tritt, Kent has earned his stature in the community of who’s who in Nashville.Kent is happy to produce an ADN artist when time and budget permits. The supporting musicians chosen are always the highest caliber. And ADN clients consistently love the final product. He’s just got that “gift” or “thing” or whatever you want to call it. But one things for sure… we all know it when we hear it. It’s unmistakably Kent.
Various producers we work with have produced projects for country superstars including:
