Country Music Entertainer
John was a success before even moving to Nashville. Nominated for North East CMA Entertainer of the Year and Best Male Vocalist, John has had a No. 1 on the MP3.com country chart with ‘There Goes the Neighborhood’ and ‘Small Town’ was featured in the movie American Reunion. ‘If you want to know where country is headed, just give a listen to John Karl,’ says Rodney Phelps, a top Nashville attorney who also worked with Garth Brooks and Chris Cagle.
John won the local Colgate Country Showdown in Upstate NY and had a song on Christian Country Radio with ‘Just Love Her’ in 2003. He has toured the USA and opened for acts Ricochet, Daryl Worley and Craig Morgan just to name a few. He has played lots of festivals, including the CMA Festival in Nashville and was the house artist in 2008 at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville.
John Karl is the next big thing, with the right attitude, music, and performance style. He can get wild and pull out a tear jerker right behind it. He knows what the fans want and he gives it to them.
Growing up in Niskayuna, N.Y., John has loved music all of his life and began singing at a young age. After high school he studied Graphic Design, was part of a professional water-ski team called the Coors Light U.S. Water-ski Show Team where he produced and performed the show and was a local Club DJ. While singing at a ski team function, a local funder made him an offer he could not refuse and helped him go to Nashville.
John moved to Nashville on Labor Day of 2002. He spent the next two years learning everything he could about the Nashville music business. He networked and got into writing circles and formed the duo Kalamity Jane. Soon after John went solo and began work on his self-produced album Redneck Rich Hillbilly Happy, released 2007. Recorded his second “Are You Ready For This” in 2010 and has since hit the charts running with Redneck Rich and That’s What I Believe. Visit www.JohnKarl.net and check him out for yourself!
