Aaron Kelly is not your typical twenty year old. In fact, at age 11, Aaron was a finalist on the TV show America's Most Talented Kids and at 17 had reached the top 5 on the popular show, American Idol®. He participated in a national tour, appeared on other national television shows such as The Ellen Degeneres Show, the Late Show with David Letterman, Wendy Williams, Larry King Live and Access Hollywood. Not willing to rest there, his current goal is to write and record a great pop flavored country album.
Signed with Buddy Lee Entertainment out of Nashville, TN, Aaron is confirming tour dates for 2013 . He’ll be fronting his band named 2nd South and appearing around the country opening for Casey James, Montgomery Gentry and Joe Nichols to name a few and headlining his own shows as well....All while he writes songs for his upcoming album and readies himself for showcasing for Nashville labels. .
At 20, he’s a professional performer. American Idol® was far from his first time to perform in public. His love to sing and write music became apparent at the age of 7, so his parents nurtured his desire allowing him to entertain at fairs, festivals and benefits where he opened shows for Billy Currington, Thompson Square, Emerson Drive, Aaron Tippin, Bill Anderson, Loretta Lynn, David Ball, Little Big Town and sang with Martina McBride, Charlie Daniels, Marshall Tucker Band, The BeeGees, among others. Kelly credits Rascal Flatts, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban to be among his musical influences.
