Album Review: Eastern Kentucky’s Josh Nolan Releases ‘Kind Heart To Follow’ On May 17th

I wanna say something that likely won’t mean anything to you, unless you know Josh Nolan. We’ll get to his new album momentarily, but I feel the need to share some insight that I feel is relevant.

Now what I am about to say, is not a negative thing. Perceptions can be tricky when trying to get the information to folks in a manner that makes sense to everyone. So follow me as I explain why this young man should be on your radar.

Help Our Veterans At The First Annual Ride For The Heroes In Lexington On May 18th!

Some folks never have the opportunity to have someone come into their life that leaves a huge impact. For Kathy Garrison, that person is Larry McCoy. Larry and Kathy have similar hearts and their work in aiding those in need brought them together. Mr. McCoy works with our veteran’s at the Hope Center in Lexington, Kentucky. A position he has held for many years. Kathy has spent many years helping those that fight the uphill battle of addictions. Their paths crossed and Larry showed Kathy how addiction affects many veterans.

This was a moment of clarity for Kathy. Her Father was a veteran, as is her brother, who served in the Marines and she will happily tell you that he is her hero. The issues the veterans were facing certainly hit close to home for Kathy and she approached Larry with an idea to help those in need, as well as a way to honor her father. Who unfortunately passed away in August 2015.

Seeing the many needs that the veteran’s wing at the Hope Center has Kathy approached Larry with an idea. An idea that she has now spent the last seven months shaping. The idea at its core is simple, a motorcycle ride where all of the proceeds will go to the veteran’s wing of the Hope Center, as well as the Wounded Warriors Project.

“Ride For The Heroes” looks to help address the multitude of supplies that are needed at the veteran’s wing of the Hope Center. Things like clothing, food, shelter, personal hygiene products, and so on. There are really just too many items to list.

So how do you get involved? (more…)

Friday’s Forgotten Gems: Kevin Welch

Music is a way of life here at Capture Kentucky. We love, live it and do our best to share it. While doing that, we’re often reminded of great songs, albums and artists that may or may not have had the success that we felt they deserved. It’s a series we’re calling “Friday’s Forgotten Gems!”

This week we have a listen to a song from Kevin Welch. Kevin had a decent run in Country music as he charted five songs, released eight albums and has continued to tour, although there are no current dates listed in 2019. Welch’s most successful song at radio was “Till I See You Again“, but the forgotten gem in this article is “True, True Love Never Dies.”

With an upbeat vibe, strong harmonies, a true Telecaster riff and a story we can all relate to, Welch hit this one out of the park from my perspective!

We hope you enjoy what we do here at Capture Kentucky. We do our best to shed a positive light on Kentucky and her people.

If you have a song that you’d like to suggest we take a look at, feel free to post it in a comment below!

Thanks for reading!

Friday’s Forgotten Gems: The Blue Ridge Rangers

Music is a way of life here at Capture Kentucky. We love, live it and do our best to share it. While doing that, we’re often reminded of great songs, albums and artists that may or may not have had the success that we felt they deserved. It’s a series we’re calling “Friday’s Forgotten Gems!”

In this debut edition, I wanted to pick a song that was personal to me. A song that not a lot of folks may know. I grew up with a Dad that loved music and he always talked about “The Blue Ridge Rangers.” He said that it was the next John Fogerty project after Creedence Clearwater Revival came to an end.

New Music Alert! Jericho Woods Drops ‘One Perfect Sound’ On May 3rd!

If you’re a reader of this site, you already know the magical sounds that Jericho Woods create. They headlined our first Cinder & Smoke Fest last year, and they were also part of the Kentucky Takeover show in Nashville earlier this year.

We’re big fans of the members of the band, it just so happens that they also create fantastic music while representing our great Commonwealth.

‘One Perfect Sound’ contains ten brand new songs. You’ll find yourself submerged in an audible landscape that’s painted by the wonderful melodies and harmonies. You’ll take the trip with stops at love songs gone wrong, songs that celebrate love, songs that transport you to the beach, songs that feature Spanish style guitars and everything in between.

With ‘One Perfect Sound,’ Jericho Woods delivers the perfect balance of country music that’s marinated in a little Southern Rock ‘n’ Roll, seasoned with a dab of bluegrass, topped off with a little mop sauce and washed down with a cold Ale-8.

The results are sure to appease Country Traditionalists, but it’s also modern enough to fit in with the rest of Music Row. Highlights include “Wrong Things Right Reason”, my personal favorite in “Love The Way You Love Me”, “Song Like This”, “Monday Morning Cigarette”, “Miss Devine”, “Tennessee”, and of course the title track, “One Perfect Sound.”

Here’s the deal though, if you like one Jericho Woods song, there’s a very high percentage that you’re going to like them all. Seriously. Check out “Love The Way You Love Me” and if you dig it, just buy it or if you must, stream it. It’s truly great!

These young men have toured relentlessly and there are some amazing things on their horizon that we can’t wait to share with you.

Central Kentucky is currently a hotbed for talent and there is no shortage of greatness out there trying to make a name for themselves. The Americana and Country scene is thriving, while the rock scene is definitely rebounding with bands like Johnny Conqueroo, Trippin’ Roots, Sean Whiting, Mojothunder, Sour Cream and People Planet taking up the mantle. C2 & The Brothers Reed have been honing their craft for some time now and they’re poised to make an impact in a big way.

Sold-Out!! Tyler Booth Comes Home To Campton!

Tyler Booth. Where do I begin? I’ve known Tyler’s Dad for years. We worked together back in the ole Stitch Rivet days. So I helped out any way possible when Jay reached out to me. This was in the early days of Capture Kentucky. I helped behind the scenes, in other words, the boring stuff that isn’t important. Lol I heard a few songs Tyler had written and as I do with anyone that is talented, I needed to see if he could pull it off live. Let me just say, that if you saw that November or December of the 2017 model of Tyler Booth, you would not believe that he’s come this far, especially in such a short period of time. That first show, I saw a nervous young man. One that escaped his fears by rarely making eye contact. I joked at the time that I took 1000 photos and only 8 had his eyes open. Some folks would get mad about that, but Tyler listens to people and that’s his biggest asset in my opinion.

I see a lot of Tyler in myself. He’s able to internalize things, sort out the truth from the bull and come back even better. That is what will keep this young man on his meteoric rise. With each show, Tyler gets better. Those early shows, he would go flat sometimes, as everyone does from time to time. Watching his face through my lens, I saw that brief moment of doubt. He’d be mad at himself, but he would go home and practice to dial in his voice. I saw none of that on Saturday. Which speaks volumes to his work ethic.
