    A Songbird Takes Flight. Meet Tiffany Williams

    I’m blown away, on nearly a daily basis, by the talent our Commonwealth continues to produce. I saw an article recently with the title “Country Music Was Born, & Is Now Being Reborn, In Appalachia“, the article itself is a pretty simplistic piece, but I couldn’t agree more with its title. Folks like the “Whiskey Riff” don’t cover artists until they reach a certain level of fandom. In doing so, they barely scratch the surface of what is actually happening here in Kentucky. They’re pumping out short and simple articles that focus on the “it” artists of the moment. They’re going for clicks. We’re here for the music, the artists,…

    Old Souls And Youthful Energy, Meet Bedford!

    The hotbed of talent that lies within our great Commonwealth surprises me on an almost daily basis. Country music or as some call it, Americana, is pretty prevalent around these parts, but the music community is extremely diverse at the moment. We have Rock, Rap, Soul, Singer-Songwriters, Metal, Circus Sideshow performers and just about anything you can dream up. In this article, I want to shine a little light on a band that is based in Morehead. The band is Bedford and their business is rock’n’roll. And from where I’m sitting, business

    Meet Sour Cream As They Unleash Their Sweet Self-Titled Debut

    It’s no secret that Kentucky has become a hotbed for talent over the last couple of years and I want to introduce you to one of the young guns. Meet Sour Cream. If you’ve followed the site, you may remember these guys from our Cinder & Smoke Fest earlier this year. If not, let me fill ya in a bit. Back in the late 1990’s the music scene in Lexington was booming with venues like The Wrocklage hosting tons of bands that have went on to become household names. The scene at that time had a few local bands that had a real shot at becoming a household name themselves.…

    Despite A Late Start To His Career, Dan Conn’s Music Continues to ‘Shine On.’

    For me, I look for music that moves me. That can be construed in a couple of different ways, so let me clarify a bit. With Dan Conn, you’re not buying a dance record. You’re buying a collection of short stories with the sole purpose of soliciting an emotional response. Be it love, loss or heartbreak, Dan Conn’s songs are relatable at nearly every level. I’ll call it a blue-collar authenticity. His songs are real. They’re matter of factly in nature and they deserve your attention. Especially if you listen to music as intently as I try and tell myself that I do. For ‘Shine On’, Conn has decided to…

    REVIEW: Chelsea Nolan Raises The Bar With ‘chelsea.’

    I want to start this article by saying something that I can likely never say about another artist. I have never heard an album that captures a person’s personality more than Chelsea Nolan’s new release, ‘chelsea.’ What does that even mean? Glad you asked. Follow me down the rabbit hole and enjoy this one! I’ve spent some time with Chelsea over the last year. I was honored to take a few photos for promotional purposes and I’ve seen her perform several times. In a way, I watched these songs be born and grow into what you now hear.

    REVIEW: Kentucky’s Wayne Graham Unleashes Joy! On September 18th

    I know what you’re thinking. Which one is Wayne Graham? And the answer is none of them. The bands moniker was created by combining the two Grandfathers that brothers Hayden and Kenny Miles share. As a fellow Eastern Kentuckian, I certainly understand and appreciate the nod to family. While Joy! is Wayne Graham’s fourth release, in my humble opinion, it is by far their most ambitious. Joy! is also their first album to receive a European release, which will be on K&F Records in Germany. As with any review, I try to highlight only a few songs that I feel you will appreciate. Then I leave the rest for you…

    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…

    Black Stone Cherry Becomes The Band We All Dreamed Of With Family Tree

    There are few bands that can even come close to deserving recognition as a true Southern rock band. The grit, the grime, the hard workin’ blue-collar work ethic that crafts such powerful anthems is often imitated, but rarely replicated. You need to live a Southern life to truly understand it and represent it to the masses. When Black Stone Cherry released their self-titled debut back in 2006, we all envisioned these guys as a new modern heavier version of Lynyrd Skynyrd.
