They say that Friday nights are made for fighting, but on this Friday night, there were 3 bands playing at The Paramount in Ashland, KY for all to enjoy. Josh Brown & The Hard Livin’ Legends were celebrating the release of their brand new album, “Thunder And Lightning”. The perfect title for an album full of songs about the storms of life.
First up, was Brock Thompson! He started off strong with his own tunes, but when he threw in a few cover songs, like ‘Feathered Indians’ by Tyler Childers and then ‘Rodeo’ by Garth Brooks, that’s when the crowd was ready to part. Brock even gave us a listen to a new song he had been working on. His energy on the stage was electrifying! This young man loves what he’s doing and will do his best to make you love it as well. Huntington can claim a good one in Brock Thompson! (more…)
On a chilly Sunday evening, I got the chance to do one of my favorite things on Earth. I got to see one of the many talented performers that our great Commonwealth has produced, back home here in Kentucky. Dwight Yoakam played to a sold-out crowd at the beautiful Paramount Arts Center in Ashland, KY.
This was my first trip to the Paramount and it was also my first time seeing Dwight Yoakam. Neither would disappoint on this night. The Paramount is a beautifully preserved theater. It’s like walking back in time to a 1930’s era “Movie House”. It’s a bit art deco with beautiful murals adorning the walls and ceilings. It’s also home to the friendliest staff that I’ve ever worked with. They truly made me feel at home. (more…)
