Southern, Christian and more than a little rock-and-roll, the Rhett Walker Band will be coming to Savannah, Tenn., to share their debut album Come to the River June 14. The K-LOVE sponsored band will hit the stage at the Hardin County Fairgrounds at 7 p.m., bringing what Walker says is going to be one big party. Besides Walker himself, the Rhett Walker Band is comprised of Kenny Davis on drums and Joe Kane on guitar, a self-described “bunch of guys picking fights with instruments and hoping to come on top.” Here, frontman Walker describes his faith journey, favorite artists and what he says is unique about his story-telling songs.
Q: What are you most looking forward to about the show in Savannah?

Q: It’s been a year since the release of your debut album. How does that feel?
A: It’s been great. A lot has happened. We have toured the country, met a lot of cool people, sang some songs, got nominated for a Grammy, played the Ryman, ate at every Waffle House from the Carolinas to California and still not caught up on sleep.
Q: And now that that’s over, what’s next?
