Born and raised in Southern Illinois, Kendell started playing the guitar at the age of five. He spent the rest of his childhood playing and singing in local bars. Kendell moved his family to Nashville in the summer of 1998 to pursue his musical career. He has been cranking out country music hits ever since.
The first song he wrote after moving to Nashville was the top five hit by Gary Allan “Right Where I Need to Be”. Since then, Kendell has had over sixty cuts. He landed seven songs on Jake Owen’s first two albums, including the hits “Yee Haw”, “Startin With Me”, and “Don’t Think I Can’t Love You”.
One of Kendell’s biggest honors was having legendary singer George Strait cut one of his songs. “Twang” ended up being a hit single and the title of the album. Kendell also co-wrote “That Lonesome Song”, the title cut on Jamey Johnson’s Grammy-nominated album. Lee Ann Womack cut one of Kendell’s favorite songs “Either Way” on her Grammy-nominated album Last Call. Kendell’s songs have also been recorded by Trace Adkins, Blake Shelton, Joe Diffie, Josh Turner, Randy Houser, Josh Thompson, Colt Ford, Travis Tritt and many others.
Kendell’s recent co-writes include Justin Moore, Brantley Gilbert, Randy Houser, Darius Rucker, and Thomas Rhett.
He most recently had five songs on Josh Thompson’s new album “Turn It Up”, cuts on Blake Shelton and Darius Rucker’s new albums, and one on Kenny Chesney’s next beach record.
After appearing on NBC’s The Voice and Jay Leno’s The Tonight Show, Hailey Steele has made her home in Nashville where she writes and sings her own brand of country music. She grew up in a one-stoplight town in South Dakota listening to classic country and Def Leppard, and shared the stage with legends such as Willie Nelson and Neil Young. Her rootsy upbringing is embedded in her songs, where she’ll go from wine-drinking heartbreakers to Jesus jams, bridging the gap between classic and today’s country. Hailey is signed with BMG Chrysalis Nashville and is currently writing for her first solo record. She recently received the honor of being inducted into the South Dakota Country Music Hall of Fame.
