Alabama-bred Ryan Kinder has composed songs with some of Nashville’s most successful writers, including Josh Osborne, Ashley Gorley, Ross Copperman, Chris DeStefano, Tom Douglas, Jeremy Stover and Luke Sheets, and has shared the stage with performers including Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, Martina McBride, Brett Eldredge and Zac Brown. Known for his soaring tenor voice and nimble guitar chops, Kinder just launched a 14-city headlining tour behind his hit single, “Close.” He also recently shared a poignant video for the song “Still Believe in Crazy Love,” which was inspired by its composer, Andrew Dorff, who passed away last year at age 40. The video features several brief vignettes featuering real couples who share their own experiences of true love. Steve Dorff, father of Andrew Dorff, speaks in the video about what the song meant to his son and now what it means to him.
