Cole Swindell Brought Lauren Alaina and Chris Janson Along To Invade The Corbin Arena

Cole Swindell brought his “Reason To Drink” tour To Corbin Kentucky and judging from the amount of beer I saw being consumed, there were plenty of reasons to drink!!

Most people that know me would consider me a rock n roll guy and I am but I’m also a fan of live music. So when the opportunity presented itself to cover this show I jumped at it. One thing I’ve learned about these big country tours is they put on one helluva show! Big stages, big productions, big video screens and some serious lights! All that makes for great photo opportunities and Cole Swindell, Chris Janson, Lauren Alaina took full advantage of all that was provided to them! (more…)

Josh Martin Comes Home To The Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg As Tyler Booth Makes His MAC Debut

It’s springtime in the Bluegrass, 60 degrees one day and snow the next. So as I’m traveling along Highway 80 to the Mountain Arts Center you’ll see evidence of spring and winter, snow in places and fruit trees blooming. That’s Kentucky weather for you. Tonight wasn’t about weather, it was about two homegrown Eastern Kentucky singers performing together at the MAC. What a performance it was!

Tyler Booth is a name that everyone in this area

Pink Makes A Stop In Louisville On Her Beautiful Trauma World Tour

I’ve had the opportunity, and great privilege, to witness and even cover many of the biggest musical stars in the world. Arguably though, I have never had the opportunity to photograph a more famous female star than the beautiful young lady that you know by the name of Pink.

If you follow this site, the fact that I’m covering a P!nk show may catch you off-guard a bit. While I won’t claim to be a huge pop fan, P!nk is, on a personal level, my favorite pop female voice. She is my biggest guilty pleasure in music. She is such a confident, talented, funny and real star. I am equally drawn to her personality as much as I am her voice. If you can watch the Carpool Karaoke video below and not see all those traits I just listed, we just can’t be friends. Lol (more…)

In Honor Of The Country Music Highway, 23 Kentucky Artists You Need To Know!!

When I sat down to write this article, it was originally going to be just ten artists. I had so much trouble trying to whittle down my list, that I ultimately decided to write until I felt the list was full. Turns out that the magic number wound up being twenty-three, so I figure why not dedicate this article to the Country Music Highway or as the Government calls it, U.S. 23!

This list includes every genre out there, so there truly is something for everyone here. If you know me at all, talent is talent, so enjoy this musical smorgasbord. I hope you find an artist that compels you to get involved. See a show. Buy a CD. Buy a shirt. Support the artists or lose the art.

By the way, these are in no particular order. Why? because I feel rankings and things like a battle of the bands causes more division in a musical community than they’re worth. The intent of this article is for us all to lift each other up. We’ll call it “Fan-Sharing” for lack of a better term. So here goes!

Kris Bentley’s Star City Circus Jam At The Mountain Arts Center In Prestonsburg

You are asking yourself, what is a Star City Circus Jam? Glad you asked! Star City Circus Jam is a joint effort between The Revival (Kris Bentley’s (Sundy Best) band) and the Mountain Arts Center. The idea was to bring local and regional musicians and artist together for a day of music and arts. The Mountain Arts Center was the perfect place to host this gathering.

The festivities got underway at 2 pm with musical performances in the lobby by Waylon Ray Nelson, Brandon Campbell and Prototype. Tables were set up near the concession stand for a free community lunch provided by The Lunchroom Project. On the other side of the lobby you found craftsman, painters and woodworkers all with work on display and for sale. It was a great environment setting the tone for what was to come in the MAC’s main auditorium. (more…)

Dancing The Night Away With Magnolia Boulevard At The Burl

If you’ve seen this site before, you’ll know the concept. I find Kentucky bands and artists that I feel need a little spotlight and I do my best to convey the reasons you should care. My motto is pretty simple, support the artists or lose the art. That should be a pretty compelling argument, but I’m sure you’ll want more, so let’s get started.

One of the bands that have been on my radar for some time, is Lexington’s Magnolia Boulevard. I’ve watched several performances on the ole Tube of You, but I just hadn’t had the opportunity to catch them live. Thankfully though, that all changed on Saturday night at The Burl.

Miranda Lambert, Jon Pardi & The Steel Woods Had Us Living Like Hippies At Rupp Arena

If Country Music is King in Kentucky, Rupp Arena is it’s Palace. Kentucky’s Queen will always be Loretta Lynn, but on Friday, the Palace got a visit from a Princess. As Miranda Lambert brought her “Livin’ Like Hippies” Tour to Lexington. In tow where Jon Pardi and The Steel Wheels.

The cool thing about a Country show at Rupp Arena is there’s usually a pre-show concert in the lobby of Heritage Hall, near the food court. Just so happens, some old friends were playing the Austin City Sound Stage on Friday. Scott Said & Backroads don’t really need an introduction around here, they’ve long been considered one of the premier cover bands around. Traffic was an issue for me, so I didn’t have enough time to get see my friends, but I did hear a couple songs in the lobby. So if you’re attending a country show at Rupp, I highly recommend you get there early and check out some local talent. Lexington is absolutely loaded right now and I wish that 98.1 The Bull, WBUL would pay more attention to local artists. (more…)
