Kevin Williams is an accomplished musician who is no stranger to southern gospel music. While growing up in Russell Springs, Kentucky, Kevin first picked up a guitar at age 12 and began playing at churches and community events just two years later. His natural ability and hunger to grow as an artist led to countless opportunities to produce, perform and record professionally.
“As a kid, I would sit on the front row at concerts of many of the artists that are now featured on the Gaither Homecoming videos. It has been my honor to play for them and get to know them. I will never forget men like George Younce and Joel Hemphill who offered an encouraging word to a then-hopeful 14-year-old guitar player.” Shortly after his 16th birthday, Kevin made his first trip to Nashville. It was then that his dream of becoming a professional guitarist began to take shape.
This guitar player, band director and “resident smart-alec” for the Gaither Homecoming Tour continues to light up arenas all over the world with his warm spirit, musical expertise and passion for blessing audiences with the gift of laughter.
Kevin and his wife, Kathy, reside in Nashville, Tennessee, with their two daughters Carolina and Olivia.
