Kyle Clerkin grew up and lives today in southern Indiana. His interest in bluegrass music began when he was thirteen years old after hearing highway 40 blues on the radio. It was soon after when a family friend gave Kyle a box set of Flatt and Scruggs which inspired him to play banjo. Kyle has been playing for thirteen years and has played with bands such as the New Balance, Jake Brown and Blue Line, and the band he currently plays with today the Caleb Daugherty band. Kyle would like to thank the Lord and Savior for blessing him in all of his endeavors and for surrounding him with such good people and friends throughout his life and music career. Kyle would also like to thank his mom and dad, his wife Katie Clerkin, his two sons Kade and Ian, Dolly Bradshaw, Rickey and Sarah Wasson, and his friends Zion Napier and Caleb Daugherty.
