Kerr has been a headliner at Nashville's Bluebird Cafe since 1991 and performs at the prestigious music venue periodically every year. With his Bayou Band, he has hosted annual Mardi Gras shows at the Bluebird since 1992.
A three-time nominee for Music City Blues Society awards, Kerr was nominated for the society’s Male Vocalist of the Year, CD of the Year and Entertainer of the Year awards.
A prolific songwriter, Kerr has penned songs with Bryan Cumming that chosen as theme songs for Cookeville, Tennessee (Highlands of Tennessee) and the University of Mississippi's MomentUM program (For the Love of Ole Miss). His CDs are comprised primarily of original material. With Jim Sparks, Kerr composed "Voicemail," a song recorded by World Music artist Barefoot Man and the folk music duo Howard and Debra Faris.
Kerr and his band appeared in the TV documentary Civil War Songs and Stories, aired through the United States on PBS TV affiliate stations.
Also a journalist, Kerr co-authored The All-American Truck Stop Cookbook and frequently contributes to magazines and newspapers.
