Tom Kimmel’s songs have been featured in film, in television and on albums by dozens of artists, including Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker, Randy Travis and Linda Ronstadt, selling millions of copies around the world. A critically acclaimed recording and performing artist in his own right, he tours widely and has released seven albums.
The Sweetest & the Meanest, his first collection of poems, draws on his colorful life experience coming of age in the Deep South, traveling the world and exploring spiritual practices. Born in Memphis, he grew up in Alabama and now lives in Nashville with his wife and daughter.
