Kentucky’s Own Josh Martin Returned Home To The Jenny Wiley Amphitheater!

For the second week in a row I find myself at the Jenny Wiley Amphitheater for a socially distant outdoor show. Yep, you read that right “for the second week in a row” take that 2020!!

For those that aren’t familiar with tonight’s venue, the Jenny Wiley Amphitheater is part of a Kentucky state park, the Jenny Wiley State Resort Park, located in Floyd County very near the town of Prestonsburg deep in the hills of eastern Kentucky. Prestonsburg is also home to another of Capture Kentucky’s favorite eastern Kentucky venues the Mountain Arts Center. (more…)

Grammy Award Winners, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Delight A Packed House At The Mountain Arts Center In Prestonsburg

*A huge thank you to James Stamper for the assist with this article*

The Tedeschi Trucks Band brought their superb show to the best venue of its kind, the Mountain Arts Center on February 25th, 2020. The Mountain Arts Center, or known locally as the “MAC”, Is a 1,040-seat venue that in my mind has the best sound and best lighting system in all east Kentucky. I have seen a lot of shows here from Ralph Stanley to Ricky Skaggs to Goose Creek Symphony to Dressed to Kill – The Kiss tribute band. Every show has been perfect. I would love to see more acts appear at this venue. If you’re around Prestonsburg, KY and there’s a show happening, you must see what an amazing place this truly is. With that being said, I want to give a HUGE thank you to the Mountain Arts Center and the Mayor of Prestonsburg, Les Stapleton, for bringing this outstanding act to eastern Kentucky! This will be one show that will never be forgotten! (more…)

Chris Janson, Ray Fulcher, And CJ Solar At The Appalachian Wireless Arena In Pikeville

Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, children of all ages Degeneration X umm wait, I mean the Appalachian Wireless Arena proudly presents to you Chris Janson, Ray Fulcher and CJ Solar! I apologize, been watching way to many late 90’s wrestling videos on YouTube (but you know you read that in your best wrestling ring announcer voice)! Okay, let me get back on track here. Keeping with the cool things that happen in Kentucky that I mentioned in my last review for Capture Kentucky, Chris Janson along with Ray Fulcher and CJ Solar stopped by the Appalachian Wireless Arena in Pikeville to play some country music for the fine folks of eastern Kentucky. Judging by the size of this crowd, the people of Kentucky were joined by fans from West Virginia, Virginia and maybe even Tennessee who were more than ready for the country music these three artist are about to offer.

Ringing In The New Year At Home With Tyler Childers At The Appalachian Wireless Arena In Pikeville

Okay, be honest, Pikeville Kentucky is not the first place that comes to mind when thinking about New Years Eve festivities. That thought belongs to a city square in a metropolis up north that has a population larger than the entire state of Kentucky. A party made famous by Dick Clark and carried on today by Ryan Seacrest and a host of other celebrities, but today on New Years Eve 2019 THE party is in Pikeville Kentucky! Because this New Years Eve here in Pikeville, Tyler Childers has gathered family and friends for the third and final sold-out party at the Appalachian Wireless Arena. He had fellow Kentuckian Darrell Scott start the party then Todd Snider and his band kept it going.

Darrell Scott may not be a household name to the casual music fan but I don’t think this Pikeville crowd were casual music fans! As he walked center stage to the mic the Pikeville crowd started cheering and didn’t stop until he finished his last song. Darrell is a singer/songwriter from London, Kentucky and like I said the casual fan may not recognize his name but you will know some of the songs he has written. Like his second song tonight “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive” that has been recorded by several artist including Brad Paisley and Patty Loveless and used several times during the run of the TV series “Justified”. Or maybe “It’s a Great Day to Be Alive” recorded by Travis Tritt. That’s just naming a couple, the list of artist that have recorded his songs is long and impressive! Tonight, however, was about Mr. Scott, his guitar and a New Years Eve audience that was eating up everything he gave them! (more…)

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…)
