Kenny Stockard is a native of St. Louis, MO. He comes from a long line of musicians and has been singing all his life. It was in the Baptist Church that he gained his appreciation for voice as a favorite instrument. Forever a student of the craft, he picked up song writing in high school. Follow along to see what new avenues will be explored as he continues to communicate stories to bring people together. His main goal is to show us all how alike we are by sharing common experiences and appealing to us to set our differences aside.
