Grammy Award-winning songwriter, musician, and producer Gordon Kennedy will be playing an intimate concert at Wilkinson Public Library on Friday, September 25th at 6:00 pm.

 

Kennedy's name became nationally recognized when he won Song of the Year at the 1997 Grammys for Eric Clapton's song "Change the World", which he co-wrote with Wayne Kirkpatrick and Tommy Sims.

 

In addition to his work with Clapton, Kennedy has had his songs cut by musical greats, including Bonnie Raitt, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Bruce Hornsby, Carrie Underwood, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Alison Krauss, Nickel Creek, Peter Frampton, George Strait, Martina McBride, Joan Osborne, Wynonna, Jerry Reed and, most recently, bluegrass legend Ricky Skaggs.

 

Some of his most notable cuts include his Bonnie Raitt singles, "I Can't Help You Now" and "I Will Not Be Broken", his Garth Brooks single, "You Move Me", which reached No. 2 on the country charts, and his Alison Krauss cut, "Maybe".
