Kevin Griffin at Hal & Mal's
Hal and Mal's-Jackson, MS – Kevin Griffin (of Better than Ezra) live with J.R. Moore (of Ingram Hill). Kevin Griffin made his professional debut in 1995 as the singer and songwriter for New Orleans- based band Better Than Ezra. Their debut record, Deluxe, went double-platinum fueled in part by the success of the #1 Modern Rock track “Good.” The band's follow up record, Friction Ba-by, went Gold and contained two Top 10 Modern Rock tracks followed by another Top 10 Hit in 2001 with the single “Extra Ordinary.” In 2005, Better Than Ezra had a Top 10 Hot AC hit with "Juicy" which was not only licensed by several commercials and brands but also featured in the promotional advertisements for the popular ABC television series Desperate Housewives. Better Than Ezra’s most recent song, “Breathless,” was covered by Taylor Swift at the Hope for Haiti telethon and during her world wide tour. In 2006, Griffin branched into writing for other artists and soon scored a #1 hit with Howie Day's "Collide." Most recently, he has written and produced for a variety of artists in Rock, Pop, and Country. In 2010, Griffin had Sugarland's #1 Country hit, "Stuck Like Glue" which according to Yahoo Music! became the 11th most downloaded country music song of all time. Since then, Griffin has penned singles for David Cook, James Blunt, Augustana, and Tristan Prettyman. Other cuts include songs written and produced for artists such as Missy Higgins, Train, Blondie, Shinedown, The Rouge, Get Scared, Daniel Powter, Josh Radin, Brendan James and more. To date, Griffin has produced, written, and co-written albums and songs that have sold in excess of 30 million copies. Kevin recently re-located from Los Angeles to Nashville where he continues writing and produc- ing in his newly built studio in the bucolic hills of Franklin, TN.

You can even create a team of five runners and tackle the course as a relay team. Four of you take on five-mile legs with the final runner going the 6.2 miles to the end.
