Most recently, Friendswood Development Company, the largest residential developers in the Houston market, picked up a Hutton song, "The Place That''s in Your Heart", as the theme song for their marketing video for their Houston neighborhoods. "The Place That''s in Your Heart" will provide the key tag lines for Friendswood''s marketing thrust for years to come.
Songwriting continues to be Kyle''s first love. Most of his writing is done solo, but collaborations with other songwriters have resulted in unforgettable music experiences. Recent cuts include "Feel Again", produced by veteran Texas musician and Grammy award winning producer Lloyd Maines for Roger Creager''s album "Having Fun All Wrong", and "Some Get Rich" for Creager''s Dualtone release "Long Way to Mexico" . Hutton also wrote and recorded the 10 original songs for his first album "Small Price to Pay". Kyle''s second c/d "Coming Home", another product of Lloyd Maines, includes 9 original written by Hutton, along with 2 cuts co-written with lead guitarist, Ken Reynolds.
When you hear Hutton''s songs you hear a difference. Legendary producer Lloyd Maines (also the father of Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks) had this to say about Kyle''s writing, "In my opinion, the best songs are about the truth. Kyle writes songs about the truth." Songs about family, songs about fun, songs about love, songs about loss. You''ll find them all on Hutton''s first 2 studio albums.
Kyle resides on the outskirts of Houston with his wife Tara and sons Brooks, Casen and Carter.
What the Media is saying about Kyle Hutton
"This Kyle Hutton CD definitely deserves a serious listen.......Kyle is a serious writer.......In my opinion, the best songs are about the truth and Kyle writes about the truth......When I heard his song "If I Quit Now" , I knew I wanted to help him with this recording.........Kyle Hutton, yet another Texas treasure. "
".....sheer grit and emotion. Just one listen to Coming Home......and you get the impression he lives by every word he writes and sings. His songs tend to center on.... down-home loving, Texas country living, home and hearth, Jesus and family... he delivers them with endearing earnestness. Plus, his blend of Lone Star country elements (that folk-''n''-rock melange) with the traditional kind (plenty of steel guitar and fiddle here) makes for an honest listening experience. .... there''s something reflective and wistful about the music he makes. "

"Kyle Hutton''s songs speak of what''s in his heart - his family and faith, his love of music and the state of Texas.....he makes a smooth switch from his radio-friendly songs to countrified rock covers and even some gospel."
