McKee's crossover success has helped him to achieve millions upon millions of YouTube viewers, underscoring his emergence as one of today's most unique and influential artists. McKee is the first artist to be signed CGP Sounds, the record label founded by fellow guitarist Tommy Emmanuel. 'Live Book' is McKee's first release for the label.
