Charlie Daniels, The Kentucky Headhunters and Kaleb Lee Delight In Pikeville!

One of the things Jonathan told me he was looking for when I joined Capture Kentucky several years ago, was that if it was cool and happened in Kentucky or had a Kentucky connection he was interested. Let me ask you this and you tell me if this qualifies. I think I know the answer before I ask but here goes, does The Kentucky Headhunters playing on stage in the mountains of eastern Kentucky qualify as cool? Maybe an emerging artist in Kaleb Lee and former contestant on The Voice born in western Kentucky playing on that same stage, is that cool enough? Or to top Kaleb and The Headhunters, both were opening for the legendary Charlie Daniels and his band at the Appalachian Wireless Arena in Pikeville Kentucky. I think all that qualifies as cool, no, not just cool, that qualifies as kickass! (more…)

Ashley McBryde Delights Prestonsburg Alongside Nicholas Jamerson At The Mountain Arts Center

Tonight’s near-capacity show at the Mountain Arts Center saw Ashley McBryde bringing her Girl Going Nowhere Tour into East Kentucky along with Prestonsburg’s own Nicholas Jamerson. It is always good to be back at one of my favorite venues in east Kentucky, well for that matter not just Kentucky but just about anywhere. In my opinion, you would be hard-pressed to find a better thousand seat venue than the Mountain Arts Center. Beautiful building, top-notch staff and incredible sound and lights! But enough of that, let’s talk about tonight’s music.

As I said earlier Nicholas Jamerson is from right here in the city of Prestonsburg, he’s covered a lot of miles since he left Prestonsburg all those years ago to be back home and performing on this stage tonight. I’ve had the pleasure to photograph him several times both as a member of the successful duo Sundy Best and as a solo artist. I commented to someone recently that this show was the best I’ve heard him sound in a long time, he (more…)

Black Stone Cherry Electrifies On Their “Carry Me On Down The Road” Tour At Cincinnati’s Bogarts!

It had been 25 years since I’ve been to a show at Bogart’s. The Venue hasn’t changed much but the area around sure has! Changed for the better, best I could tell. I did learn one thing though, soccer fans are hard core! The Cincinnati FC was having a match near Bogart’s, the fans were gathering together for what I was about to find out was a march to the stadium in the pouring rain, most were soaking wet, banging drums while chanting/singing. Hardcore I tell ya!

Bowling Green Kentucky’s own The Josephines took the Bogart’s stage first. They describe themselves as “a rag tag group of rock n roll drenched country hoodlums” and having seen them live I’d say that’s an accurate description! When I walked into the venue they were on stage running through sound check in their pajamas no less! I knew right then this was going to be a cool ass band and I was right! They had been stuck in traffic and were late getting to the venue, but that didn’t hamper their performance at all. In fact, that may have motivated them because the ripped through their set, kicking it off with “Coal Mine Gone” into “Never Ends”, then finishing with the set “Cocaine” and “Fireball”. I really hope to catch another show from The Josephines sooner than later! (more…)

Josh Turner And Mo Pitney Delight The East KY Expo in Pikeville

Why was it a good night to get in out of the rain at the East Kentucky Expo Center? I’ll tell you why, Josh Turner brought Mo Pitney along for a night of traditional country music.

Mo Pitney was up first. He took the stage with just his voice and a guitar. For the next few minutes he entertained the crowd with his original tunes and some great Roger Miller covers. Mo grew up playing bluegrass, and some compare his roots and voice to Kentucky’s own, Keith Whitley. He was the perfect choice to open this night. No frills just a man and his guitar singing some super cool tunes!

Kane Brown Brings Granger Smith And Danielle Bradbery To The Corbin Arena

I saw a picture posted from the Corbin Arena staff at around noon on the day of the show and there were already fans waiting at the doors to get in. That’s usually a great indicator of how the night is going to go. When tickets went on sale a few months ago the show sold out in just a few hours and even with a lengthy traffic delay (almost an hour, not the Arena’s fault, but due to a traffic accident) every seat in the house was full! Not just full but full of enthusiastic and loud fans!

As I mentioned there was a lengthy traffic delay and I, of course, got caught in it, unfortunately, I missed Danielle Bradbery’s set. I was told that she put on a great set, just wished (more…)
