Midwest country music singer-songwriter Jared “Pete” Gile returns June 4 for a second year to open for headliner Phil Vassar at Chingawassa Days in Marion.
Gile’s sound ranges from slow country to a faster paced rocking country feel.
He is noted for his original songs, witty humor, and entertaining storytelling. Gile has released multiple CDs. His latest effort was an eight-song project entitled “Small Town Troubadour” in 2013.
He lives in Kansas, and says he is “rural by choice” because the Midwest fuels his creativity and helps his songwriting. The self-proclaimed “small town troubadour” has performed more than 900 shows in the last 12 years.
