9 December 1970, Humble, Texas, USA. Kersh is another anonymous, good-looking country newcomer, possessing a good voice, but one not distinctive enough to register. His debut album has been well received. The album is mostly up-tempo but the key track is the slow dance tune Goodnight Sweetheart, which made the US country Top 10 in 1996. On If I Never Stop Loving You he attempted a cover version of Eric Claptons Wonderful Tonight, in addition to a credible version of Willie Nelsons Hello Walls. In 1999 Kersh was suffering from throat problems and spent the next few years recovering. He returned in 2004 for a US tour with the Honky Tonk Tailgate Party, which included Rhett Akins, Chad Brock and Daryle Singletary.
