Leaping Hawk Records is proud to welcome one of the founding members of The Kendalls - Grammy Award winner Jeannie Kendall - and Carl Acuff Jr. to our Record Company.
Jeannie, along with her father Royce Kendall, rose to fame with several number one hits including "Heaven's Just a Sin Away." The vocal blending of this father/daughter dup was perfect, and never needed tuning in any studio.
Their love for God, Country, Family and Music came through in their voices and created something that only occurs with family vocal timbre and is almost impossible to recreate.
Carl Acuff Jr. adds those same timbre and harmony qualities to complement Jeannie Kendall on their new release, "Island in the Kitchen," written by none other than Jerry Gillespie (writer of Heaven's Just a Sin Away) and Dan Willis. Jeannie's powerful, sweet, clear voice is as strong today as ever, and has found a good vocal match with the amazing harmonies of Carl Acuff Jr., an established performer in his own right. This song will carry you to paradise and set you dancing around your own "Island in The Kitchen."
Jeannie Kendall & Jerry Gillespie, writer of Heaven's Just a Sin Away and co-writer with Dan Willis of Island In the Kitchen.
