Trey Hensley

Our 14th annual Buddy Walk was a success! We had a great day and generated close to $37,000 in support! What a fabulous event. Our sincere gratitude is extended to Trey Hensley our Grand Marshall. His musical talents, warmth, and generosity will truly be remembered for years to come. Check out his website.

Grand Marshall: Trey Hensley (www.treyhensley.com)

Trey Hensley, despite his young age, has already forged his own style. What started eleven years ago as a kid singing traditional bluegrass has become the mature sound of a 22-year old country performer and vocalist who has already found his voice. While you’ll hear some of his idols and influences around the edges, more than anything you’ll hear Trey Hensley.

With a guitar in his hands, his talent expands beyond the reason of his years. This guitar aficionado will blow your mind. His own style of picking, whether on his Telecaster or acoustic, bears the influence of some of his guitar heroes. You’ll hear traces of Merle Haggard’s Roy Nichols; genre-smashing super-picker James Burton; country stylists, Marty Stuart, Buck Owens and Ricky Skaggs; and bluegrass royalty Doc Watson and Tony Rice.

Listening to Trey on CD is certainly enjoyable, but seeing him performing, hearing his voice and watching his fingers will surely make you a fan. And just when you think you can’t like him more, you’ll realize that the humility in this young man is every bit as impressive as his talent.
