Kaleb McIntire is from the piney woods of Joplin, MO, in a small town called Diamond Missouri, where he called The Ozark Mountains & Branson, Missouri his Home


McIntire grew up playing gospel music on the road.  At age 6, McIntire began playing the piano, then moved onto playing the drums, and then eventually moved on to playing the guitar. His pops, Kent, is McIntire’s very 1st musical influence as his dad played (& still plays) the saxophone. McIntire’s dad, Kent, played the piano/“keys” on McIntire’s 1st album, Scars”, in 2011-2012!

After high school, McIntire worked on a drill rig for a couple of years before becoming a security expert for Ted Nugent.

McIntire 1st performed in front of people doing impersonations of one of his musical influences, Elvis Pressley, in Branson, MO. While growing up in The McIntire’s household, Elvis was King & if you said otherwise, you were in trouble!

Later in July 2012, that dream quickly turned into a tragedy as McIntire was involved in a life- threatening car crash on his way to Nashville TN from Dallas Texas just outside of Oklahoma City on I40. The truck in front of him didn’t have any working break lights & McIntire had a knee- jerk reaction to try to avoid the truck & swerved, hitting the meridian, & hitseveral semi-truck trailers.

Lucky to be alive, McIntire underwent 5 surgeries to help repair some of his injuries -broken back, cracked ribs, & almost a severed arm. He now has a titanium rod - 1st of its kind - to help hold his arm together.
