Kenni Huskey began singing country music in 1959 at age 5, making her first stage appearance under the strict guidance of her country music performer/songwriter parents, Bill and Julia Huskey. The Huskey family includes her cousins Ferlin and Roy. Growing up in Memphis and often travelling to Nashville, Kenni made several of her early recordings in Sam Phillips'' Sun Records Studio, running into Elvis, Jerry Lee, and Johnny during recording sessions. She first performed in the Grand Ole Opry at age 12, with many performances thereafter, as well as sharing the stage with greats such as Loretta Lynn and Roy Acuff and other Opry legends. As a young teenager, she moved with her family to Southern California, and played gigs with her family at venues big and small. She was discovered by Buck Owens at age 15 and signed to a 5 year performing contract with Buck''s All-American band and recorded for Capitol records, with several hit records to include a featured artist in Buck''s Best of Bakersfield album. Elected in the Academy of Country Music in 1975, Kenni signed with Warner Brothers and made many more hit records. In 1980, she signed with a London label, Country Roads, and performed in Europe and Asia as well as the US. Kenni married in the early 1980''s and took a singing vacation to raise her son.
