Who is Alex Key? That’s what many people, millions to be exact, are asking themselves when they see bus rolling down the road with his face on it, or a viral video on TikTok featuring one of his songs.. However, they’re soon after finding out that Alex Key is a more traditional country singer, songwriter and Nashville recording artist, quickly making waves in the music world. Alex comes from a small town in NC called Wilkesboro where he grew up on multi-generation family farm listening to music inspiration of all kinds. His mom (and personal manager, Karen) raised him on some of the greats like George strait, Alan Jackson, Randy Travis, etc.. and this is where Alex believes his love for classic country began.   Fast forward to present day; Alex’s first ever album “Barstools and Saddles” (released in late April of 2021) received rave reviews by fans and critics, has hit the top 40 on iTunes world wide country charts multiple times after songs like “The Fool That I Am” (of which the video was featured on CMT) “Sleep Talking” and (just recently) "The Cowboy Stayed" went viral on TikTok! The album has been streamed several million times.. Talk about coming onto the scene with a bang! With over 375k followers across his socials, it’s safe to say he has large and devout fan base. Alex is  nominated for Artist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year, as well as Song of the Year, Single of the Year, and Video of the Year with "The Fool That I Am" at the 2022 Josie Music Awards taking place at the Grand Ole Opry House on October 23rd!

When it comes to hitting the stage, the same is said.. He and his amazing band are drawing, captivating and engaging the audience with his awesome originals, as well as their take on hit covers from other artists! Alex’s shows are always family friendly and he wants people of all ages to come and enjoy the experience.. They’ve toured over many states playing concert series, festivals, venues. Often headlining, but sometimes opening for/appearing on lineups with artists such as the Kentucky Headhunters, Wynonna Judd, Tyler Childers, Whey Jennings and more. 

From the time the bus and trailer roll into town, to when the lights come up, until the time they roll out; Alex and his crew are a well-oiled honky tonk machine ready to bring that classic country sound to you, wherever you may be! 

But the question is, are you ready? Get your boots on.
