Award-winning Canadian country performer Kenny Hess made his debut in the Rio Grande Valley in 2014 late in the season and was well received by Winter Texan audiences.

This outstanding singer, who was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2014, will be in the Rio Grande Valley during late January and February when country music fans will have the chance to hear him perform with his deep, versatile voice that ranges from bass to tenor. Hess sings old favorite Country Western songs and tells stories about growing up in Canada in a family of nine children where his father was a pastor and a farmer.
