Lambert, Ken

ken lambertKen Lambert was born in 1940 in Cartersville, GA. At age 14 he picked up his uncle’s guitar and taught himself how to play, thus beginning his love for music. Later, Ken decided to try Nashville. One of the first people he met there was a very little known guy at that time named Kris Kristofferson. He lived with Kris for about a year and there his love for songwriting was born. In 1978 he recorded his first album of his own songs. In 1982 Mel Tillis cut Ken’s “Wrong Again,” on his “Long Way to Daytona” album. In 1986 Alabama cut “Pony Express,” a song Ken co-wrote with Teddy Gentry, Buddy Cannon and Dean Dillion on “The Touch” album.
