Yesterday was a big day for Kentucky music! Six artists and/or bands picked up Grammy nominations, and I feel they are strong favorites to win them all.
We love both Grayson Jenkins and Wayne Graham around these parts. Hopefully, you do as well. Enjoy!!
Hope you enjoyed the show! Here are a few shots that I was able to capture that night. Enjoy!
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…)
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…)
On November 14th Whiskey Soldier will gather a collective of musicians to Bowling Green, Kentucky’s premier music venue, Tidball’s Sounds and Spirits.

Joining those previously mentioned artists will be Cody Lee Meece, Josh Thurman, Highway Natives, and Drew Michael Blake and the Belfry.

Here at Capture Kentucky, the goal is always to help shine a positive light on Kentucky and her people. The greatest asset we have in our Commonwealth is by far and away, our people.
Seeing people chasing their dreams and ultimately catching them is likely my favorite hobby. That’s why this Blues Traveler show was so important to me. (more…)
TOOL. A simple name for a very complex band. A band that needs no introduction to any fan of rock, metal or prog, and especially to any musicians out there. The band recently made a stop in Cincinnati and we were lucky enough to be there to review the show. So let’s get started.
In a recent interview, members of TOOL considered genre labels and how they apply to TOOL’s music. Feeling more kinship with Pink Floyd than Whitesnake, Danny Carey mentioned that he felt like TOOL wasn’t really a metal band in his mind. Discourse about genre labels will always continue, regardless of how futile, but TOOL is a group that, since its inception almost 30 years ago, has been in a league completely on their own. Blending elements of grunge, psychedelia, metal, and prog, TOOL has consistently shattered expectations, while still maintaining an easily identifiable and timeless style and sound, creating what is arguably one of the best complete discographies in modern hard rock/metal.
This tour is following one of the most anticipated (more…)
Y’all know I’m a sucker for concerts where we see a Kentuckian come home. We’ve covered many of ’em and one of our favorites will forever be Mr. Chris Stapleton.
On Saturday night, Kentucky’s current King of Country Music returned to his home state and invaded the KFC YUM! Center with Brothers Osborne and Kendell Marvel.
You may recognize the name Kendell Marvel, as we had the opportunity to interview Kendell here at Capture Kentucky. (You can read that here)
Kendell is a pretty prolific songwriter in Nashville. He’s worked with Mr. Stapleton on many, many songs and he recently released a new album through Easy Eye Records. Working with Dan Auerbach from the Black Keys, Marvel released ‘Solid Gold Sounds’. (more…)
