Can you imagine being on America’s Got Talent, singing your heart out, and then Simon Cowell cuts you off? That’s exactly what happened to our guest on this episode of Metrosource Minis. BUT – what could have been a moment of disaster was actually a moment of triumph as singer-songwriter Kameron Ross continued his audition, singing acapella, and wowing every one of the judges.
Kameron Ross started his country music journey at the age of 8. when his parents took him to his first concert to see Shania Twain at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. That experience changed his entire life, as he walked away knowing what he was meant to do in life. He soon began singing at local country music concerts that allowed budding artists the chance to make a name for themselves. In 2006, he put out an album produced by T.G. Sheppard & Kelly Lang called When I'm Done Lovin' You. In 2010, he played at A Day In The Country music fest in Houston, opening for The Band Perry, Miranda Lambert, and many other artists. Around the same time, he started to become more in tune with who he was as a person as well, eventually coming out as gay. Soon after Kameron put his country music career on hold after he noticed a loss of interest from the same people that had been booking him all these years.
Last year, Kameron appeared on season 15 of NBC's America's Got Talent. Kameron excelled in the competition making it all the way to the live Quarter Finals. Today, Kameron is busy performing everywhere, releasing new music (now streaming), and just released remixes of his hit singles.
On this episode, we chat about the pros and cons of getting in the music business at such an early age, staying true to his Texan roots, coming to terms with his sexuality and its effect on his career and family life, the reality of reality TV, country music fans and the LGBTQ community, his creative process, labels, and his Palm Springs debut…with host Alexander Rodriguez.
