Kyle Petty
Kyle Petty
Kyle Petty is a former race car driver turned racing analyst who has always carried a passion for music. A traveling preacher at the racetrack gave Petty his very first guitar at age 12. Petty soon began writing his own music in high school, finding creative influences in country artists, such as Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard, and singer-songwriters like Carole King, James Taylor, Harry Chapin and Jim Croce. Throughout the ‘80s, Petty was an opening act for various bands, and now enjoys open-mic night at the Evening Muse in Charlotte, North Carolina. When not onstage, you can find him on NBC Sports Network’s daily NASCAR America show, and beginning in July, on pre- and post-race NASCAR Sprint Cup shows on NBC and NBCSN. Petty lives in Charlotte with his wife, Morgan. www.kylepettycharityride.com
David Childers
David Childers
David Childers is a musician, poet, historian, painter, father and champion of people who get tangled up in the bureaucratic legal system; he specializes in helping people navigate the maze of the Social Security system to obtain their benefits.

He grew up in the cotton mill country of North Carolina and started playing banjo when he was 14. “I didn’t have the confidence to be a musician,” he says. “I sang in the church choir so I could get close to the good looking girls I knew.” He started playing guitar in college, but he was a 37-year-old practicing lawyer before he got serious about his songwriting. His first album, Godzilla! He Done Broke Out!, was released in 1994. It marked the beginning of 13 years of relentless touring, while working 60 hours a week as a lawyer.

He made nine more albums before he burned out and stopped performing in 2007. “I ran into a brick wall, burned out from the touring, drinking, staying out late and my work schedule.” Childers sat in a chair for a few months before having a spiritual awakening. “I wanted to investigate God. I dove into the Quran, but I grew up with the Bible and began reading. It helped me understand the spiritual consequences of the things I was doing. I became happier and more at peace. Now, I try to set an example with my life and be decent to other people.”

He started playing music again in 2010, recording two albums, Glorious Day (2010) and Next Best Thing (2013) with the Overmountain Men, a band that Avett Brother bassist Bob Crawford – a huge fan and close friend of Childers’ - helped produce. “David is the most prolific North Carolina songwriter alive,” Crawford said. “Everywhere I go, people ask about him. It’s great to see people constantly discovering this man and his massive body of work.”
