With over a decade in the music industry, renowned country singer Gary Pratt is sharing his unique country sound with the masses. While this is my introduction to Pratt, he has already established a name in the US music scene. Performing with artists like Pam Tillis, Lorrie Morgan, Ronnie Milsap, Dwight Yoakum, Neal McCoy and Crystal Gale, as well as playing notable festivals like the Rocky Gap Music Festival and Tennessee State Fair, Pratt has built a loyal following – a following that continues to grow. Along with his gigging experience, the US-based singer-songwriter has received several accolades being a Josie Music Awards nominee (2021) and an International Singer-Songwriters Association Songwriter of the Year award winner (2021).
Recently he received The ISSA Male Emerging Artist of 2022 and The Hollywood Red Carpet Fair Play Award for his song Country to the Bone." Gary has been featured in The Hollywood Digest, Skope Magazine, Music Update Central, and New Music Weekly (to name a few publications), Pratt is described as good-natured, anthemic and “…setting the world on fire” (New Music Weekly).
Coming off his 2021 album Something Worth Remembering, Gary Pratt is a singer, a songwriter, but most of all, an energetic country entertainer who connects with his audience. His last two songs have hit number one on the International Itunes Chart. He grew up in the small, old coal mining town of Slickville, Pennsylvania. His current recording project, "Something Worth Remembering", is dedicated to his brother who recently passed. The album is a combination of Gary's originals and songs written by credited Nashville writers. The title track was written by Grammy Award Nominee Tony Arata, who wrote Garth Brooks' "The Dance". This project has been in the making for over a year. It was recorded at Tonic Studios with Engineer Doug Kasper, Producer Bryan Cole and Musician/Artist Adam Ernst.
Excited about this new album, Gary invited MTS Male Vocalist Matt Westin and Female Vocalist Savannah Nider to help out on a few songs. Savannah and Gary recorded the duet he wrote, "To Find Us", at Omni Studios in Nashville. It was the first time Gary and Savannah met and are now making plans to write together in the future. Gary is forever thankful to God for walking with him through life, paving this musical journey and putting the gift of music in his heart. Not only has music been an outlet emotionally and has helped Gary through some rough times, but it has also brought family together and has introduced him to some of the most amazing people he is proud to call friends.
Gary is proud to work with his stage/music partner Kate Szallar. The year 2022 has been such a busy year and they have added the band Abilene to his large shows and his good friends Tim Bush and Mike Scimmie to the Acoustic Shows!
