The Quick Story:
After 15 years, 1993 to 2008, living and recording in Nashville TN. Plus performing all over the USA, Kevin is now sharing his time between New Zealand, USA & Australia, and once again proving very popular in the Down-Under Scene. In fact since returning home he has won some of NZ’s most prestigious awards, including, Best Male Artist, Best Comedy Act, The Agnew Award, awarded in recognition of an outstanding professional career. 2016 he received the “Living Legend Award” On Face TV Awards. Then in 2017 he was presented with the Benny Award, the highest accolade awarded in the NZ Entertainment Industry. This award is voted on by his peers, which means just that much more to Kevin. It was a very proud moment as he accepted it as it was 41 years after his famous father, and country music pioneer, Rusty Greaves received the same award, the first father and son to achieve this.
Kevin was asked for the 2nd time, to be one of the support acts for Super Star Kenny Rogers on his tour down-under, recognizing his fabulous talent and popularity. A tremendous hit as one of the featured Stars on the 2008 Highway of Legends Touring Show, “He truly stole the show each night” said Gray Bartlett, one of the six Legends touring on this show, which also included, Eddie Low, John Grenell, Brendan Dugan, Dennis Marsh and Marian Burns.. “His 15 years in the tough USA and Nashville scene have moved Kevin to a new level as
an entertainer, this shone through and he proved to be the hit of the show.” His mixture of country music, comedy and on-stage personality is like no other in the NZ entertainment scene.
Kevin is one of a handful of International Artists that have had the honour to perform at the World Famous Grand Ole Opry.
In 1995 Kevin was lucky enough to score 2 songs in the Nashville Charts. “I’m Not Scared of Women” #15,
“Hurtin’ To The Bone” #4. Which enabled him to get many opening spots and support tours, with some amazing artists.
