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
Singer-songwriter David Childers is the proverbial study in contradictions. A resident of Mount Holly, North Carolina, he’s a former high-school football player with the aw-shucks demeanor of a good ol’ Southern boy. But he’s also a well-read poet and painter who cites Chaucer and Kerouac as influences, fell in love with folk as a teen, listens to jazz and opera, and fed his family by practicing law before turning in his license to concentrate on his creative passions.
The legal profession’s loss is certainly the music world’s gain. Childers’ new album, Run Skeleton Run, releasing May 5, 2017 on Ramseur Records, is filled with the kinds of songs that have made him a favorite of fans and fellow artists including neighbors the Avett Brothers. Scott Avett contributes to four tracks, and Avetts bassist Bob Crawford co-executive-produced the effort with label head Dolph Ramseur. (Crawford and Childers, both history buffs, have recorded and performed together in the Overmountain Men).
In fact, it was Crawford who kickstarted this album, Childers’ sixth solo effort, by suggesting he reunite with Don Dixon (R.E.M., the Smithereens), who’d produced Crawford’s favorite Childers album, Room 23 (done with his band the Modern Don Juans). Crawford also suggested tracking at Mitch Easter’s Fidelitorium Recordings.
Crawford has also called Childers “a great friend, a great thinker and a great man … a true North Carolina treasure.” But let’s take out “North Carolina,” because Childers is the kind of treasure who can spread joy wherever people love listening to great songs. In other words, just about anywhere. Or everywhere.
