If you’re new here, welcome. If you’ve followed Capture Kentucky for long at all, you’ve seen the name Tyler Booth. A Wolfe County native with a golden baritone voice that now calls Nashville home.
We’ve likely covered Tyler Booth more than any other media outlet. The Booth family are friends, but we consider each other family since we’ve known each other so long.
We’ve been growing alongside Tyler Booth from the early days of his music journey and having said that, I am EXTREMELY excited to share Tyler’s brand new song, “Half A Mind To Go Crazy.” (more…)
I find myself repeating many talking points I've made for the talent that we're surrounded by here in Kentucky. That's truly a blessing, but a curse for a writer, albeit an unintentional redundant one. So anywho, I want to focus your attention on a Lawrence County native that now calls Nashville home. I think you're gonna enjoy this one, a LOT.
Rye Davis is a name that some may remember as a really good pitcher for Western Kentucky University. Davis went on to play in the minor leagues as a member of the Philadelphia Phillies. Unfortunately, as is the case with many others, that didn’t work out for Rye like he had hoped.
Fortunately for us though, Rye decided to pursue a career in music. His first release, ‘A Story To Tell’, is a definite favorite from 2018. A release that often winds up in my personal playlists.
For 2020, Rye has an EP that rolls out on March 27th titled ‘Cut To Tape’. We get our first taste of Rye’s new album in “King Me”. (more…)
Lexington’s Sour Cream is a band that has held my attention since I first read about them. I’m sure you’re curious where I first heard of them, so follow along for the next couple of paragraphs, you’ll appreciate this one or at least be intrigued by it.
I have known several of the gentlemen in The Kentucky Headhunters for years. Guitarist Greg Martin is truly one of the most genuine, loving and positive individuals that I’ve ever had the pleasure to have met. I respect Greg on many levels, so trusting him when it comes to music, is an absolute no-brainer. (more…)
The deeper we dig into the musical fabric that has created the wonderful sounds and support we now enjoy in our Commonwealth, one name has continued to pop-up, and that name is Don Rogers.
I first found Don about 18 months ago, but as life tends to keep us busy, Summer came along and all the coverage and/or the creation of festivals we try and provide, my research got pushed to the back burner.
Johnny Conqueroo are no strangers to Capture Kentucky. We’ve had the unique opportunity to watch these young men grow into a dynamic trio that can hold their own on any stage. We weren’t the only folks watching them grow. Turns out that Soul Step Records had their eyes and ears on Johnny Conqueroo.
Soul Step Records signed a deal with the band to release a 7″ vinyl single, to pair with their EP titled ‘Taking It Easy’. That EP and vinyl both drop on Friday, December 6th and we were given early access to share our opinion and help spread the word.
Johnny Conqueroo has never been (more…)
Grayson Jenkins needs no introduction around here, but since we have a pretty decent amount of new folks, I’ll give ya the cliff notes version.
Grayson is yet another Kentuckian that deserves your attention. He’s been honing his skills for several years and he’s grown exponentially better as a vocalist over the last couple of years. (more…)
Black Stone Cherry are a band that I hold dearly next to my heart. I’ve seen these young men perform more than any other artists out there.
Having said that, there’s got to be a good reason, right? Well there definitely is. These four young men have pumped out some of the beqst music around for the last 13 years. They know who they are, but they also know (more…)
Kentucky Music is absolutely on fire! We’ve shared a ton of new music over the last couple of weeks and I’ve got ya one more to check out.
Brad Hardin has quickly became a mainstay at the one and only Austin City Saloon. The proving grounds of many artists as they’ve grown into their abilities. Folks Like Greg Austin, John Michael Montgomery, Montgomery Gentry, George Molton, Sturgill Simpson and more recently Dillon Carmichael and Tyler Booth, have all graced the corner stage at Austin City Saloon.
I have had the good fortune of being involved with several artists over my lifetime. Many have “made it”, many more have not. None have matured faster or made greater strides than Wolfe County Kentucky’s Tyler Booth.
I met Tyler when he was around 10 years old. I knew his Dad, Jason Booth, as we both worked with bands and venues promoting our friends and in J’s case, family. (more…)
