Hal Ketchum... poet... songwriter... painter... carpenter... singer... actor... author... made his way to Texas in the early eighties where he made his mark with future pals Lyle Lovett, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Willie Nelson, and Asleep at the Wheel, among others.
Hal landed his record deal with Curb Records in Los Angeles in the early 90's and the rest we know, is the history we love. His first single off his first record for Curb went straight to number one scoring Hal his first Gold record. The song of course is his now famous, "Small Town Saturday Night."
Since then Ketchum has had 15 top ten hits, countless songwriting awards, and was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.
"The King Of Love" was released in the UK to an overwhelming positive response. On this project Hal has produced his own music for the first time. "It's an exciting time for me," says Ketchum. "I'm enjoying my life, my work,and my art more than ever."All Hal fans will be happy to know that Hal is back in the studio! Stay tuned for more updates on this fantastic new record due out in 2005.
UK fans of CMT will remember many of Hal's songs - Past the Point of Rescue / Sure Love /Hang In There Superman /Tonight We Just Might Fall In Love / Momma Knows The Highway
