Kentucky’s Tyler Childers Needs Your Help
Unless you live under a rock, you have heard and hopefully seen Mr. Tyler Childers by now. His meteoric rise has been well documented, but that’s exactly why he needs your help. Over the past year, many great things have happened for Tyler. He has shared the stage with John Prine, debuted on the Grand Ole Opry, played the Ryman and has played many, many sold-out shows. All of which were documented in a very personal way on Tyler’s Instagram. Now it seems, it has been erased by a hacker. The biggest year of this wonderful man’s life and some a$$hole stole his account and has been deleting his memories.…
Just What We Needed. A Recap Of Our Networking Night At Austin City Saloon.
When I created Capture Kentucky, I had several ideas and paths that I planned on taking. The site was created to showcase anything and everything that we felt made Kentucky cool. We’ve tried our hand at covering different events like NASCAR, Flat Track Motorcycle Racing, World of Outlaws Racing, a Ballet, the Kentucky Music Hall Of Fame, several festivals, MLB and MiLB Baseball, Car Shows, a Motorcycle Club Ride, the WWE, a Fire Station and even Keeneland. We’ve also covered tons of great concerts.
Twenty Ways To Improve The Musical Community And Advance Your Career In Kentucky
Sometimes, the most simple ideas can become one of the most incredible things that you’ve ever been a part of. In this instance, it was a simple idea for a networking night for the Kentucky musical community. On Sunday, my good friend, Austin Brashear, allowed Capture Kentucky to essentially takeover Austin City Saloon. He did so because he believes in not only Capture Kentucky, but the talent that Kentucky currently possesses. As folks began trickling in, it wasn’t before we both realized that we were onto something special. We were greeted by singer/songwriter types, local legends, music professors, rock and rollers, blues men, lovely female voices of all types and…

Lexington Brought The Love As Magnolia Boulevard Unleashed Their Debut EP
If you live in Kentucky, you need to be paying close attention to the musical community. Why? Well, I’m glad you asked. There has likely never been a time where Kentucky has possessed more talent than she does right now. Seriously. Allow me to use Magnolia Boulevard as a shining example for ya. Kentucky shines with artists like Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, Black Stone Cherry and Tyler Childers at the top of their games while our legends continue to thrive. Loretta Lynn, Dwight Yoakam, Ricky Skaggs, The Kentucky Headhunters and many more are still performing to large crowds all over the world. While that’s truly wonderful, I want you to…
Doing It His Way. Tyler Childers Takes Nashville By Storm.
The music industry is a very strange place most of the time. Long gone are the days of record labels signing a young band or artist to a developmental deal. Most labels want to get their hands on an already established and somewhat successful artist that way it is a quick way to recoup the funds it takes to break an emerging artist. It’s definitely a sound business decision for them, but the industry has changed tremendously over the past few years and the days of taking chances on signing folks to a developmental deal are long gone. Few folks are actually good enough to cut through all the clutter…
The Kentucky Ballet Theatre Performs The Little Mermaid At The Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg
When I created Capture Kentucky, I had hoped to expand my skills and photograph anything and everything. Turns out, opportunities have come to me that had not even made a blip on my radar. In a little over a year, I’ve had the opportunity to photograph NASCAR, Minor League Baseball, Major League Baseball, a rodeo, a motorcycle club ride, a Star Wars museum exhibition, the final Carl Casper Auto Show, a fire station, a wedding, several large music festivals and one of the biggest pop stars on the planet, in P!nk. I’m either incredibly lucky, or I’ve finally figured out how to do something right for once. Lol
On The Road: Kentucky’s Black Stone Cherry Brings Black Top Mojo to Capone’s in Johnson City, TN
This was a perfect spring day to make my first trip to Capone’s in Johnson City, TN for Black Stone Cherry. I am sure it will not be my last! Great venue! I had seen Black Stone Cherry a couple times, but hadn’t seen their opener for tonight Blacktop Mojo. A 5 piece band out of Texas, Blacktop Mojo’s music was a great fit to open for BSC. Their Texas southern rock was just what this big crowd at Capone’s needed. Pulling songs from both of their albums Burn The Ships and I Am, tracks like “Burn The Ships” “Where The Wind Blows” and “Back Home” and a cover that…
Bowling Green’s Spillway Bar & Grill Celebrates 20th Anniversary on May 12th!
What does a music venue really mean to a community? That’s a very difficult question to answer, but one that I want to try and tackle. Smaller venues have a tendency to attract fair-weather business owners, especially when the capacity of the venue isn’t 25,000 people where so many people go and word of mouth helps things grow much more quickly. As soon as a small venue begins losing money, most close up shop and disappear as a small blip on the musical map. Others though, help musicians and communities grow and as time goes on are sometimes taken for granted. When those things happen, it breaks my heart. As…
