When/Where: Thursday, June 5th, Samsung Galaxy Stage
Who: The John Mayer of country music — minus the tattoos and tainted love life
Why You Can't Miss Him: If you didn't get to a recent Tim McGraw show early enough to see the opening set by this Tennessee-born, Alabama-bred singer-songwriter, do yourself a favor and see him command the Galaxy as if he's been headlining for years. Kinder is a guitar virtuoso with a penchant for the kind of heartfelt lyrics that play out like a Rachel McAdams movie. Make that, a Rachel McAdams movie that even guys enjoy. His sound channels hints of everyone from Mayer and Jackson Browne to Garth Brooks and Brad Paisley, yet his voice is one of the most unique of any country newbie on the radio today.
