Kevin Suhr is a songwriter that lives in Nashville, Tennessee.  He and Cara have been married 32 years and they have a daughter that attends Belmont University.

He and his sister, Jill Marie were raised on the family farm in Eastern South Dakota.

Kevin's professional life has been a journey.  From welder to short order cook to teacher to day laborer to college campus president, his career has been a series of adventures. 

However, the most important position he has held was being his little sister’s full-time care attendant.​

In July of 2014, Jill Marie was diagnosed with stage4 cervical cancer.  Leaving their families in place, she and Kevin relocated to Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland for what became a 2 year journey.

Jill Marie passed to Heaven on September 7, 2016.

During his time in Bethesda, Kevin started keeping a journal, chronicling Jill Marie’s fight.  This journal  evolved into his first album,
“Songs from the Big Parade”. ​


We do not hold the corner on tragedy; all families have adventure" - Jill Marie Casey -
