This year’s live entertainment is performer Kurt Thomas. The small town way of life is a frequent theme in many of the songs Kurt writes. Kurt recalls that he used to work at an old country store called Pierce’s. “All the old farmers would hang out there in the mornings and tell stories about their lives and I guess that it had a big impact on my life” says Kurt. He has written/produced several albums and has most recently collaborated with Grammy Award Winning writer, Dennis Morgan on Kurt’s soon to be released album “Give it Hell Trying”.“Kurt’s songwriting ability is one of the most amazing talents I have seen in my many years in the music business”, said Lee Davis of MLD Productions, an opinion supported by Kurt’s win of Kenny Chesney’s Next Big Star contest making him the opening act for Chesney, Brooks & Dunn, Sammy Hagar, LeAnn Rimes, Gary Alan and Sugarland. Kurt has also opened Joe Diffie, Little Big Town and Ronnie Milsap.After opening for Chesney, Kurt went on to win CMT’s Music City Madness – a nationwide contest that lead to Kurt’s doing an Unplugged Studio 330 session on CMT as well as a mentorship with Grammy-award winning singer, Randy Travis.Kurt has a unique ability to captivate an audience – whether playing old favorites or his own songs. “I have always tried to stay in touch with the fact that a good song tells a story and most of my songs always do”, says Kurt.
