Read more inside to find out who our Kickin Country Artist of the Week is and why!

Mark McKinney is out Kickin Country Artist of the Week, its not to often we get to talk about someone who is from right around San Angelo so we are going to take this chance to tell you all about the future President of the United States of Texas.

A Big Spring Texas native you can say that Mark McKinney is a true West Texas boy that can pick a guitar. We find Mark singing about a southern mans way in his first album called "Get It On". This album was nothing short of rockin and put you in the party mode for the rest of the evening. We saw hits like "Bonfire","Stompin Ground","Comfortable In This Skin" and "Party Foul" all come from that album and gain instant popularity in radio.

Mark's second album called "Middle America" was a new page for Mark because it not only had the rockin party songs that we all know Mark for like "Middle America" but it also boast the very first love ballad he ever recorded called "Long Night Coming On".

The most recent album that Mark has released is nothing short of amazing and should be one that every Texas Music fan owns and listens to religiously. Titled "Home" the track list goes on and will set up the perfect tailgate party for anyone.  Tracks such as "Drink Too Much" and "Live It" you will be in the mood to party or you can slow down and take your time with songs like "The River Song".
