PHIL McGARRAH, VOCALS/GUITAR/MANDOLIN/FIDDLE, 2019 Arkansas CMA's Entertainer of the Year Phil McGarrah & Runnin On Empty The sound of country singer-songwriter Phil McGarrah and his Runnin’ On Empty Band is original, traditional and oh so much more! McGarrah’s natural born knack for writing songs has been called "phenomenal" and compared with the songwriting abilities of Hank Williams and Willie Nelson and has been called a modern day Harlen Howard.. "I write songs about everthing including my friends,so, if you're my friend you are free game!" McGarrah grew up in a one-room log cabin in the Spring Valley and Clifty area of Northwest Arkansas. "I started playing the guitar when I was about 5 years old. I watched my brother, cousins, and uncles play at church. I saw where they put their fingers on the strings and it was all history from there." Wrote his first song at 8 years old, "Night Time In Old Kentucky" In an effort to establish his own sound, McGarrah has recorded all original material on two past CDs and is preparing a third featuring duets with his musical heroes. Phil is an ALL American Boy ! He likes Hunting, Fishing, Baseball and really likes to meet people!
