Country Recording Artist & Member of Montgomery-Gentry
Writes special Songs For Adopt A Room:
Background on Eddie "K":
Eddie Kilgallon was born and raised in Upstate New York. His musical
roots started to take hold as he performed in countless school musicals
and concerts, and he started writing songs soon after the family got
their first piano. In 1991, Eddie went to Nashville to record a demo
session and never looked back.
He married his hometown sweetheart, Terry, and soon after was offered
a position with the band "Ricochet". Signed to Columbia Records
in 1994, the band began a whirlwind touring schedule to promote the
overwhelming success of their debut album. Eddie's vocal arrangement
of "The Star Spangled Banner" can still be heard today on
radio stations throughout the country. In August of 1996, Eddie co-wrote
a song with Roger Cook and Earl Bud Lee that became ASCAP's "Song
of the Year" in 1997. "One Night At A Time" was recorded
by George Strait, and held the number one position for five straight
weeks. Soon after, he was signed to a major publishing deal with BMG
music. Eddie is touring nationally with CMA Award Winner Montgomery

KARE, Channel 11 Adopt A Room's collaborative efforts are available for all to see
thanks to Minneapolis NBC affiliate, KARE, Channel 11. The TV station
reports on one of Adopt A Room's brainstorming sessions - a meeting
with children and parents to gather ideas for what a "home away
from home" environment might be like.
For a child, being hospitalized means being separated from parents,
brothers, friends, pets and the comfort and familiarity of home. A child’s
hospitalization can rob both parent and child of a sense of control,
leaving them feeling helpless.
