I can do all this through Christ who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13 Keven was born the son of Gerald and Kaye King of Monticello, Louisiana. The younger of two sons, Keven can remember always being surrounded by music. From his earliest memories some type of music was always filling the King home. Gerald, Keven’s dad has always been able to pick up a musical instrument and begin to play it by ear. This always amazed Keven, because he did not inherit the gene. When Keven turned twelve years of age, he saved up enough money to purchase a sunburst guitar from Sears. Keven started playing and learning the music of his peers of the time Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Charlie Rich, and even a little Elvis.
