**KYLE MERCER
http://www.kylemercermusic.com/
Originally from Phoenix, Arizona and now based out of Nashville, TN this country music singer-songwriter and recording artist has entertained folks across America. He's performed in states such as New York, Ohio, Texas, Missouri, Florida, Arizona, New Mexico and California to even performing for our troops overseas in Japan. Stepping back, after completing his tour of duty as a U.S. Navy Sailor, Kyle decided to pursue playing Country music as his full-time profession. After gaining years of combined live shows, studio recordings and a good size catalog of self-penned songs under his belt, Kyle hit the road for Nashville to make a name for himself in Country Music. "I love the idea of laying it all on the line and living out one's dream by creating opportunity through hard work and determination. It keeps me pushing for more!"
  Along the way Kyle has worked with many other Nashville artists and songwriters inspiring him to become the "whole package" as a Country artist. He's lived in Tennessee for eight years now and stays busy playing regular gigs on Nashville's famous downtown streets of "Broadway", while staying consistently booked across the nation playing for his dedicated fan base he calls his "Mercenaries", while on top of it all still finding time to write songs for his next project. "I love song writing! Being able to write and sing about the life one's lived and the experiences we have all been through in a way that connects with a listener is truly fulfilling for me. Knowing that my songs could possibly help change a person's life for the better or even give them a "break" from life is a great feeling. Some people say moment to moment is how most people live their lives. I like to think being a songwriter, I live my life song to song."
