Kurt Fortmeyer was born in a barn and raised in a stable environment, or so he might tell an unwitting listener in one of his sillier moments. Brandishing his acoustic guitar and harmonicas, and writing and playing original songs with a traditional bent, he has been labeled as a “neo-traditional hobo bluesman honkytonking folksinger/songwriter”, although “Americana artist” is much easier to say. His great songs, good stories, and bad jokes prompted The Nashville Ear to name him “The Best Of The Best” local songwriter, and have kept audiences enthralled in venues as wide-ranging as Montessori Schools, motorcycle bars, restaurants, and rest homes. He has written songs with some of Nashville’s biggest hitmakers, played live on NPR radio stations, and shared stages with well-known country, bluegrass, blues, and folk acts.
He is as at home in front of a microphone as he is on a front porch, and it shows.
