Kym Shurbutt, of Spartanburg, South Carolina, has been entertaining for more than thirty-five years—over thirty of those years spent here at The Carolina Opry, where he was an original cast member and is best known for the character “Bogie.” Also a vocalist and musician, Kym has performed at the legendary Bitter End in New York.
When not performing, Kym has volunteered for such causes as Promise Land Crisis Center and Hurricane Katrina relief. He also helped form a men’s devotional group, which he attends weekly. Kym’s favorite quote is “People will forget what you say, and people will forget what you do, but people will never forget how you make them feel.”
Kym takes great pride and pleasure in his son Cody.
