Canadian country music artist, Kevin Davison, has launched a country music career that is taking the industry by storm.
Jumping into the music scene with both cowboy-booted feet in 2009, Kevin found himself in Nashville within a year in recording sessions with some of the best musicians in North America. With a career as a Paramedic in his small hometown of Kentville, NS, Kevin has dedicated his life to helping others while always carrying a tremendous passion for music. Life’s journey has brought Kevin to a place in time where music is taking a front seat.
Having released his debut album "Just The Beginning" in November 2009 with his first single "Bring it Here to Me" hitting the airwaves on radio stations across the country in regular rotation, it was no surprise when his second single hit #82 on the media base charts. With the initial success of Kevin's first album being recognized by the country music industry Kevin was invited and honored to kick off his live performance career opening for country music legends "Little Texas". The same year saw Kevin taking the stage with Jason Blaine, Chrystal Shewanda, Doc Walker, Gord Bamford and Paul Brandt at the first annual Ridgefest in Nova Scotia’s beautiful Annapolis Valley.
