THE BAND

KYLE BOURGAULT

Lead Vocals

Nashville Recording Artist Kyle Bourgault is from Eagle Mills, NY and has been singing country music for over 20 years. As an early teenager, his parents would throw neighborhood parties with many people attending, one of which was a female country singer, picker, and yodeler, which is where his love for country music began. Although from upstate NY, Kyle resided in Douglasville, GA in the early 90's where his love for country music was revitalized. Kyle’s influences include the early 90's era of country music; Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt, Alan Jackson, George Strait and many others, as well as the older generation he grew up listening to. 

In October 2015, Kyle recorded an EP of three original songs in Nashville, produced by Eddie Kilgallon of the highly decorated country band Montgomery Gentry. Music for Kyle's songs, "Better Every Beer," written by country artist Billy Wayne Yates, and Byron Hill, "Little Red Dress," written by Kevin Mason, Terry Clayton, and Brett James, and "Absofreakinlutely," written by country singer, songwriter, musician and producer Jeff Dayton, were all recorded at Beaird Music Group located in Nashville, TN with top quality studio musicians. Lead and background vocals were recorded at Off the Row Studio in Franklin, TN. 

In September of 2016, Kyle returned to Nashville and recorded another six original songs, again produced by Eddie Kilgallon and recorded at Beaird Music Group (Lead vocals for four of the songs were recorded at there as well).  Pat Lassiter Production (Riverfront Recording Studio), captured the other two lead vocals and all background vocals.  These six songs were written by top quality Nashville songwriters as well, including Gary Hannan, Lance Carpenter, Eddie Kilgallon, and Eddie Montgomery (Montgomery Gentry).
