Top 15 Moments From Capture Kentucky’s First Two Years!

Here at Capture Kentucky, we’ve been incredibly blessed to be a part of some really great moments. Moments that will someday soon, be looked upon as part of our musical history. We’ve already seen the rise of several Kentucky artists and we feel there are plenty more on the horizon. Having said that, here is a list of the top 15 moments we were privileged to be a part of over the last two years!

First, an honorable mention. We created the Cinder & Smoke Fest which was held at Proud Mary BBQ in Lexington in 2018. It was the culmination of many months of work and it is something we are incredibly proud of. This year, we’re having the show in Jackson, Kentucky and when you see the lineup, you’re gonna want to snag tickets asap. So go ahead and clear 6/22 on your calendars. Trust me!

Now onto the list! (more…)

Oh What A Year In Pictures! Capture Kentucky 2018 Edition

I debated on putting this photo recap together, but oh what a year it was! We had a ton of fun and there were waaaaaay more photos that I wanted to include, but I tried to just do some highlights and favorites for everyone. My goodness, Kentucky is absolutely loaded with talent and we had an almost overwhelming amount of support in 2018. We truly can’t thank you enough and we promise to work even harder in 2019 to not only cover your favorite artists, but to create events and to shine a little light on the wonderful talent in Kentucky.

Thanks for everything and we’ll see you at the show!! (more…)

Kickin’ It On The Creek 2018 – Saturday Edition

The crickets, frogs and birds provided the soundtrack for a peaceful nights rest and it was once again time to do some kickin’ on the creek.The music started early on my day two and the fact that Mr. Childers would be playing later on Saturday night, I fully expected the crowd to be much thicker.

The Wine Tree Band began the day for folks, but I have to admit they didn’t start mine. So my apologies to those folks. The sirens song that the frogs and crickets sang kept me in bed until about 9:15. As I awoke and scanned the schedule for the day, I suddenly realized that Saturday was going to be a who’s who for Kentucky and regional music. (more…)

Kickin’ It On The Creek 2018 – Friday Edition

Kickin’ On The Creek is one of the most difficult festivals that I have ever been asked to describe. Why you ask? Thank goodness! I wasn’t sure how to move forward. So I’ll start here, family.

The Roberts family has turned their beautiful homestead into a music venue. Wait, what? No seriously. Hear me out. Deep in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, part of the Daniel Boone Forest, technically in Lee County, Byron Roberts and his family have seriously turned their home into a music venue. What seems impossible is actually flat-out magical.

Give me another example of such selflessness. I’ll wait…..You have nothing? That’s what I thought.

The idea for Kickin’ It On The Creek was born from a birthday party. No, again, seriously. When Kenton Roberts turned 21, Byron and Kelli threw him a birthday party and invited several local musicians to participate. Just so happens, one of those locals eventually became a household name for us Kentuckians and the rest, as they say, is history. The local? Tyler Childers. Every year since, with this being the fourth year, folks have traveled as from as far away as Oregon to experience such a unique event.

Top 20 Must-See Kentucky Artists At Kickin’ It On The Creek 2018

Kickin’ It On The Creek (KIOTC) has quickly grown into the absolute MUST have ticket for Kentucky Festivals. The four-day event held deep in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains has drawn in like-minded folks who have banded together to create a beautiful, helpful, loving community. There’s even a common phrase used by those in the musical community and it’s eloquent in its simplicity, “Know Your Tribe.” I can say first hand that once you are accepted within the “tribe”, your faith in humanity will get a huge jolt in the restoration department.

Now I’ve heard a million stories about how magical KIOTC is. How it is all about community and how that is right up our alley here at Capture Kentucky. So when you get a phone call from KIOTC owner Byron Roberts asking you to be a part of something as special as his event, you simply, “Yes, Sir.” Mr. Roberts also gave me a compliment that I can not thank him enough for. He sees how we’re benefiting artists and creating a genuine spotlight for all the talented folks that we can. He told me that he likes, “The eyes that I see this community with.” That told me that our missions, intentions and hearts were in the exact same spots.

A lot of us here in Kentucky feel that there is a musical revolution that’s beginning to take shape here and I personally think a lot of the recent success stories point right back to the vision that Mr. Roberts created. Folks like Tyler Childers, The Wooks, Arlo McKinley, Justin Wells and countless others have made tremendous gains in popularity just from being a part of KIOTC.

Having said all of that, I felt that I needed to create a list for those folks that may be overwhelmed with so many performances. I will focus only on Kentucky artists for this list. That’s definitely not a slight towards any traveling artists, it just makes more sense in helping us build a community.

We won’t be able to make it on Thursday unfortunately, but if you see us during the weekend, say hey. We ordered 3000 stickers and they are supposed to be here by Friday. So snag ya one if ya like! Also, don’t forget to bring cash for your artist merch, food and drink purchases as there is no cell or wifi service available.

Now on to the music! (more…)
