About Kendell Marvel

Marvel’s songs showcase his blend of southern twang and super-sized vocals, filled with songs that split the difference between honky-tonk country and roadhouse rock & roll. Marvel’s catalog reaches far beyond his solo work, too, with artists like George Strait, Gary Allan, and Chris Stapleton all landing Top 40 hits with his compositions.

“I’m 51 years old, which means I’m long past the point of catering to anybody,” Marvel says. “I’m just telling the stories I want to tell, whether it’s a song like ‘Come On Sunshine’ — which Devon Gilfillian and I wrote at the height of the pandemic, looking to pour some light into the people who were shut in, shut down, and struggling with the doom and gloom we were all seeing on TV — or “Keep Doing Your Thing,” which argues that the world would be a better place if we just let people be who you are.”

It’s been nearly 25 years since Marvel — a native of southern Illinois, where he began playing barroom gigs at 10 years old — moved to Nashville and wrote Gary Allen’s Top 5 hit “Right Where I Need To Be” during his first day in town.

Riverbluff Park is located at 175 Old Cumberland St, Ashland City.
