Does Your Holiday Spirit Need A Jump Start? We Have The Perfect Christmas Show For You!

The holidays have a different effect on many. For some, it’s a joyous season. For others, it can be really emotional. No matter your view of the season, it’s always a time to reflect on those you love.

If you’re feeling a bit like the Grinch, the small Eastern Kentucky town of Prestonsburg hosts the perfect remedy to kicking your Holiday Spirit into high gear. Bille Jean Osborne’s Kentucky Opry Christmas show has something for everyone. You can have your photo taken with the Grinch and Cindy Lou Who. Or maybe you’d like to set on Santa’s knee at the top of the stairs, riding the slide back to the bottom, ala the classic movie “A Christmas Story”. We don’t suggest asking for a Red Ryder BB Gun though, we all know how that will end, “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid”! (more…)

Best known as the singer/songwriter/guitarist of Cinderella, TOM KEIFER once sang, “You’re only going once around the ride.” He’s proving that theory wrong with the highly anticipated release of THE WAY LIFE GOES – DELUXE EDITION, an expanded compilation of his critically acclaimed solo debut album, THE WAY LIFE GOES, chock full of bonus content and special artwork.

KEIFER and his bandmates (#keiferband: Tony Higbee/guitars and vocals, Billy Mercer/bass and vocals, Savannah Keifer/vocals, percussion and piano, Kendra Chantelle/vocals and percussion, now along with new band members Jarred Pope/drums, Kory Myers/keyboards and vocals) have been touring in support of THE WAY LIFE GOES ever since its release and they’re still not showing any signs of stopping.

2017 Pete Fest in Louisville, KY. Destigmatizing Mental Illness Through Music And Activism

In the wake of a tragedy like the one The Jones family faced a mere nine months ago, most would have shut down, tried not to think about it or drowned in an endless sea of questions, what ifs and the like.

The Jones took a different approach to their son’s death, they decided they had to take their experience and educate others about the terrible disease that depression is and all its repercussions. Pete had struggled with depression since he was a teenager. He was a gifted student and loved by many, his death was a shock. He had struggled with a sadness he didn’t understand.

On The Road: Star Wars And The Power Of Costume At The Cincinnati Museum Center Inside Union Terminal

Capture Kentucky is proud to present a new series that we’re calling, “On The Road”. While our main focus will always be all the things that make our Commonwealth so great, we will be posting articles that feature things we see and do within our travels outside our home.

In this first installment, we took the short trip across the mighty Ohio River into Cincinnati. It’s there where we made our way to The Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal. While the majority of the Museum is under a long renovation, the Children’s Museum and the traveling Smithsonian exhibit that features Star Wars and the Power of Costume are both open for business.

This article is all about the latter. Star Wars and the Power of Costume is an exhibit, that on its surface may seem a bit pricey, but I’m here to tell you and show you that it is money well-spent. Even if you are just a casual fan of the Star Wars franchise or if you happen to be a die-hard fan, rest assured there is something there for everyone. The best part? No Jar Jar Binks! Haha (more…)
