Country Music Singer/Songwriter, Bryan Kent, Talks Touchdown & Tunes Festival and how he Tailgates

What are you looking forward to most playing Touchdown & Tunes Festival?

Just being a small part of a very cool festival experience, not to mention sharing the stage with some phenomenally talented people! It’s gonna be a pinch me moment for sure.

This is a big hometown show for you, how does that feel?

I love having the opportunity to not only play music in front of my friends and family but also bringing this experience back home. This is just the start of something that my hometown can be proud of and as growth comes over the years will see numerous benefits from.

What song are you most excited for fans to hear at the festival?

“Telephone Pole.” Don’t even have to think about it. Lots of people love “Tennessee Neon,” it’s probably the most popular song on my record, but there’s just something about the energy and nostalgia of “Telephone Pole” that I love when I get to play it live.

Are fans going to be able to meet and talk with you doing the festival?

Absolutely! One of the most rewarding aspects of this business for me personally is meeting the people that love my music. I love hearing stories and people sharing which songs are their favorites. It’s truly what keeps the wind in my sails!

What music are you listening to right now?

“Round Here Buzz” by Eric Church

Music and football go hand in hand with food! What makes the perfect dish for tailgating at a game?

My friends back home make this creamy buffalo chicken dip. It is sinfully good and a game day must!

There’s always a big debate over charcoal vs. gas. What is your take on the subject?

My preference would be charcoal, if time permits of course. BUT, a great cook can make great food on gas or charcoal!

@bryankentmusic Because I’m ready for fall to be in full swing #season #favoritetimeofyear #grill #beer #pumpkin #trynewthings #football #outside #countryboy #manshit #leinenkugels

Let’s talk beverages, what’s your must have festival or football tailgating drink?

Sun Drop and Makers Mark! Very few people outside of West Kentucky are gonna know about my drink of choice, but if you are reading this, do yourself a favor. Find the nearest source to you that sells Sun Drop. Buy a 6 pack and a pint of Makers. You can thank me later!

What about your favorite festival foods?

I would say chili dogs or street corn, depending on how hungry I am!

What are some of your favorites places to eat in Mayfield, KY?

I definitely have my go to spots for when I am home, but that just goes to show how real my love for food is. Hills Chili Dogs, Majestic, Larry Darrell and Darrell, Los Pinos….for a small town, we know how to do food!

Alright, the Touchdown & Tunes Festival is over where is the best place to grab a drink and bite to eat after?

Carr’s Barn will be the local go to for the late night food and drink! There’s also Applebees across town if you have a hankering for a brutus!

Finally for Battered and Brewed, If you could eat or have a drink with one person dead or alive, who would it be and what would you have?

I’d be drinking margaritas on the rocks with Betty White!
