“The band performed an amazing cover of “Footloose”, where Kurt and a band member demonstrated how to do the dance. They didn’t waste the opportunity to get the crowd to join in with them! The band ended their show with “The Devil Went Down to Georgia”, and the park echoed with the crowd singing along! I’m eager to see these guys again, and anxious to see what the future holds for them.”
"Kurt’s voice was strong as he commanded the attention of everyone in the vicinity. The band’s energy was electric, easily transitioning from a Motown jam to pure country gold. The small town band with big city dreams proved to the revelers at Dixie Tavern they are a dynamic country music force to be reckoned with."
“Fans of Kurt Thomas know they are “in” on something special. Regarded by Southern Ground fans as a friend and comrade of Zac Brown, Kurt is not signed to a major label. However, this independent act is making waves in the Atlanta music scene. Kurt Thomas works hard to bring his music to the masses. Raised in the small Georgia gold-mining town of Dahlonega, Kurt Thomas has opened for some of the biggest names in country music (Sugarland, Zac Brown Band, Kenny Chesney, Brooks & Dunn). Kurt was the winner of CMT’s Music City Madness as well as Kenny Chesney’s Next Big Star contest….something tells me Kurt has more than luck on his side. This aspiring country music star has drive and talent that seems on the cusp of something great.”
“And if Kurt Thomas was playing on the weekend you pretty much had to stand on a barstool if you wanted extra elbow room.”
“As I sat down to enjoy an evening of music with singer-songwriter Kurt Thomas, one thing became quite apparent – he has star quality, that certain something that brings people back night after night to hear him sing. And, it doesn’t hurt that in addition to being a great talent, he’s hot. Kurt puts his heart and soul into his music, and this passion shines through with a voice so delicious it makes you hunger for more. His approachable stage presence coupled with his quick wit, warmth, and humor, are the perfect potion for a perfect evening.”
