Kevin Derryberry is a Christian musician and former lead singer of Birmingham-based rock band Telluride. He currently lives in Alabaster and continues his music as part of his ministry, "Kevin Derryberry Music Evangelism, Inc."

Derryberry was born in Selma to Ralph and Eleanor Derryberry and was raised with two older brothers as members of First Baptist Church, Selma. By the time he was in his late teens, though, he was getting involved with drugs and alcohol. He started playing with bands in Mobile and Auburn before joining Telluride. He spent 18 years touring with Telluride as lead singer and keyboardist.

After returning to Christian service, Derryberry joined the Church at Brook Hills where he became a music leader for the youth group. He also recorded his first Christian single "Jesus, Lover of My Soul" and gradually began performing at conferences, camps and retreat, leading to six full-length Christian albums and his present full-time ministry. He is currently praise team leader at Westwoood Baptist Church.
