Kenny Butterill

Americana Artist, Songwriter & Producer


“No One You Know” was Kenny’s debut CD and it yielded two singles.

The first track, “How Far Can We Go?” became the first Americana format song in over two years to cross over and become a #1 Country Hit in Europe where it stayed in the Top 10 for almost three months. The song also stayed in the Canadian Country Charts for approximately five months. “How Far Can We Go?” was also included on the first Americana New Music Sampler, a CD utilized by public and commercial radio stations in the USA as part of listener appreciation programs. The CD featured Americana legends like Emmy Lou Harris, Joe Ely, Jimmy Dale Gilmore amongst others and, for Butterill, being included on the same CD was a humbling experience.

The sixth track, Balsam Lake, reached the top 30 in the European Media Services Country charts and was on the first AFIM Americana CD “Get Your Kicks“, that included icons like Doc Watson, Jerry Reed, and many others.

All told, Butterill’s debut CD garnered global airplay on over 300 stations and programs in almost 20 countries. We thank you for listening!
