Austin Jenckes will be bringing his music to the Pizza Express Live at 99 High Holborn in London tonight: one of the capital’s newest live music venues. Rolling Stone Country-acclaimed, singer-songwriter Jenckes releasing his single ‘Fat Kid’ in March, taken from Austin’s debut album ‘If You Grew Up Like I Did’, due to be released this Friday 31st May, via Red Dot. Although Jenckes wrote or co-wrote every other song on ‘If You Grew Up Like I Did’ - and even took his debut album’s title from ‘Fat Kid’s lyrics - he himself didn’t write ‘Fat Kid’. This song was the work of award-winning artist Lori McKenna and her co-writers Neil Mason (The Cadillac Three) and the late Andrew Dorff. The official video for ‘Fat Kid’ was shot in Nashville (featuring McKenna) and indeed Lori herself does perform on Austin’s take on the track.
