Real Life Real Music was founded by host and singer/songwriter Kyle Hutton. “I am a music fan first and foremost,” claims Hutton. “I was listening to and learning about life through song long before ever writing one.” His love for the content and the craft culminated into this one-of-a-kind acoustic series where songwriter interviews songwriter and truly goes behind the song.

Real Life kicked off in March of 2007 after Hutton and wife Tara stopped into the newly constructed Dosey Doe for a quick lunch. “I couldn’t believe the place,” says Hutton. “It’s so unassuming when you’re driving down I-45 at 70mph, but inside it’s like another place in time.” Owner Steve Said and Kyle met that day and the rest is history. “It was evident that Steve and I shared a vision about how the music and the artists should be presented and treated,” Hutton states. “I pitched the idea for the series and a few meetings later we we’re headfirst into Season One.”


The first season of Real Life began in March of 2007 with longtime Hutton friend and co-writer Roger Creager. Graystone Hills, a Friendswood Development Company master planned community, signed on as a corporate partner that first season and remains a proud supporter of the series. Not far into the innagural season Hutton, along with David Amato and Karen White of 99.7 KVST began conversations that led to Real Life Real Music Radio. Each 90 minute live show is taped and edited into a 1 hour broadcast. “KVST is our home station,” exclaims Hutton. “While we are now in syndication in numerous markets blanketing the state of Texas in order to take this music to a broader audience, KVST is a vital part of our history.” Now in its thirteenth season with over 150 radio shows, Real Life’s library reads like a “who’s who” of Texas and Americana music.
