Perhaps you remember this guy and his story from right here at the Quick Country Website, and the viral video that was featured on Inside Edition, Fox Sports, and other national media outlets.

His name is Kyle Smith. He is a Staff Sgt in the US Air Force, specializing in K-9 training and security. In addition to being a decent guitar player, and exceptional singer, he is also an over-the-top Chris Stapleton fan, and a fellow member of the Chris Stapleton Fanclub on Facebook 'The Travellers'!

He is currently pitted against other promising singers & guitar players in a national contest on a popular country music blog, Wide Open Country. I ask you to please go to the site and VOTE for Kyle Smith.

I am very fortunate to have such a unique platform in which to promote good country music, and talent. Staff Sgt Kyle Smith is the "real deal" on many levels in my humble opinion, including being a proud new papa!

Read Kyle's Facebook post that is embedded below, and then go to the Wide Open Country site to locate his Video & cover of Chris Stapleton's 'Tennessee Whiskey'. I think you'll agree....Kyle's rendition is jaw-drop amazing! If you SORT BY VOTES as the website suggests you'll see Kyle is currently in first place nationally, and that's where I'd like to see him stay....on top!

Thank You in advance for voting for Staff Sgt Kyle Smith! (he's a Minnesota Vikings fan, too!)
