Kenney was born and raised in small town America where his family has resided for many generations, in Southwest Missouri. Where the priorities were, family, church, hunting & fishing, sports, agriculture, horses, cattle, etc.

Kenney’s interest in rodeo came young & he started competing in high school, into college while simultaneously playing music in a country band. Ironically, at a local rodeo in ‘96, the announcer ‘no showed’ and Kenney reluctantly filled in to help & from there, his career began. Working many different rodeos over the next few years & becoming the rodeo coach at Missouri Valley College, Kenney received his PRCA Pro Rodeo Announcer card in 2000 (at 25 yrs old) and he’s worked btwn 75-100 performances annually since & currently.

With wife Amanda & 6 yr old son Kolter, they still reside in Southwest MO., in the Stockton Lake area on their working cattle ranch enjoying the ranch & rodeo life.

“I’m forever indebted to many folks. This wonderful life wouldn’t be possible without all those who’ve helped us, the stock contractors, committee’s, fellow announcers, specialty acts, clowns, bullfighters, sponsors, fans, friends, the list is long, and we're beyond grateful & humbled by it all” Says Kenney.
