Red Kirk was recording country music in the late 40's and early 50's when I suppose record labels were asking the question, "Can you sell this stuff?" Well, we know the answer to that now. I worked with Red at a car dealership in KIngsport in the 90's. I feel lucky to have known him. He talked about doing barn dances in the old days with people like Archie Campbell. Red died some years ago, and he is a great loss to country music and I will always miss him.

Red Kirk is my cousin. He had a fantastic voice. He was a recording arist in his early years and a DJ as well as doing TV commericals for a Cheverolet dealer in Johnson City, TN in his later years. I think he was living in Bristol TN when he passed away. His daughter Piper Kirk is following in his footsteps a singer, performer in TN. She has a web site www. Piper Kirk.homestead.com. I can't tell you much about what he wrote or recorded as he was my fathers age and he also has passed. The family can still be found in the Bristol area. Hope this is of some help...

Message Martin Gibson. The guy has a phenomenal memory, and he just might have some stuff to add here.

Found this, too.

Although not a great singer he is an effective, particularly on the upbeat and bluesy sides like Sugar Coated Love/ Cold Steel Blues and Can't Understand A Woman. Particularly noteworthy are the accompanying musicians including Jerry Byrd/ steel guitar, Tommy Jackson/ fiddle and Zeke Turner/ lead guitar.

This was from a google search, and Red's name came up on a radio playlist. E-mail Ken Hippler, and maybe he can provide further contact info. Best of luck. Bruce M.

Many years ago there was a DJ in our town who was very good at playing and singing country music. He wrote a song while here and I think it was "The Wall". I seem to remember him as Red Kirk and after a while he moved on.

This song has always been one of my favorites and I have lately tried to find info on Red Kirk. Very little can I find in the Dt or Forum.
I may be wrong all the way around, but I really would like to trace him and find if he did indeed write "The Wall".

Recorded by Johhny Cash and a few others. Thanks folks. Jim
