Jimmy Blythe, singer for Jimmy Blythe and the Midnight Run, is a born and raised Oklahoma country boy, started singing and performing for crowds when he was just 5 years old. From singing for family and friends on top of pizza restaurant tables and performing to an imaginary crowd in his bedroom, he just wanted to be on stage. Little did he know then, where he would be today. His inspirations as a kid included Randy Travis, Dwight Yoakam, George Strait, and Garth Brooks. He got the feel of strumming a guitar as his dad sat on the tailgate and let him strum the strings as his dad held the chords. The spark lit in his eyes and from there on, he knew he was born to play, sing, and perform.
Jimmy got into the bar music scene just two years ago, and has gained the love and respect from hundreds of fans all over Northeastern Oklahoma. He wows the crowds with his amazing country voice, great guitar playing, deep song writing, and funny, cheery personality. He was recently nominated in Urban Tulsa Weekly for the Absolute Best of Tulsa Music Awards for Country Artist of the Year, and Newcomer Artist of the Year for 2011! His biggest dream is to play music for a living and be someone else’s role model, like Randy, Dwight, George, and Garth were to him.
