MICHAEL KNIGHT ... "Lives His Life the Country Way!"

From the Piney Woods of East Texas, artist Michael Knight is well-known for his incredible vocals in both his Traditional Country and Country Gospel performances and recordings. Michael is well known for his unique reverberating vocals in both his Traditional Country and Country Gospel performances and recordings.

Raised in the small town of Rusk, Texas, Michael's musical development began at the age of 15 by learning to play both fiddle and guitar. He proceeded to play honky tonks with Alvin Murray, the man that raised him and influenced his interest in performing.

Michael first recorded in Nashville, soon releasing his first record "Last Story" b/w "Texas" in 1983. Later in the mid 80s, several nationally released singles followed on CBT Records including "Country Way", "Say It Isn't So", and "Who You Gonna Be Tonight?". Each were in rotation at hundreds of Country radio stations and all nationally charted in the Top 10 of the independent artist charts. Although his records received significant airplay nationwide, his records were in heavy rotation on many of the Texas Country radio stations.

In addition to nationally charting records, Michael performed at many Honky Tonk clubs in Texas including Gilley's, Billy Bob's, White Elephant Saloon, Broken Spoke, Cotton Eyed Joe's, and Jitterbugs. At many of these venues and others, Michael was the opening act for major Country Music acts including Joe Stampley, Moe Bandy, Gary Stewart, Dan Seals, David Houston, Johnny Rodriguez, Mel McDaniel, Gene Watson, Dwight Yoakam, Restless Heart, Mark Chesnutt, Randy Travis, and Claude Gray.

Michael appeared in the movie "Nail 32" performing his self-penned song, "Country Way". Several more of Michael's recordings were used in the movie's soundtrack.

In 2015, Michael Knight's first Gospel CD album titled "Livin' The Good Life" was released to the public and has since enjoyed considerable sales. In 2016, Michael had two CDs released. His Gospel CD was titled "What A Wonderful World" and A Traditional Country CD titled "Honky Tonk Style" which was some of his earlier recordings from the 80s and 90s. This CD includes four of his unreleased recordings produced in Nashville in 1996 and four out of the five songs that were in the movie "Nail32".

In 2018, Michael released "Live Your Dream". In the Fall of 2020, Michael released his CD "Bible On My Dash". Both of these CD's show the different styles and types of Gospel Music that Michael does in his performances. In 2023 he released a new CD Tribute Album to James Payne called Borrowed Songs.
