    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…

    Kentucky’s Short & Company Release Debut Album, Lost in a Spin, March 29

    Raised in Jackson, Kentucky (Sturgill Simpson’s hometown), singer-songwriter and genre-bending guitar blazer, Jeremy Short, has quickly risen to the top shelf of must-hear players. Short was raised in a musical family where music poured out everywhere – at church, the piano, the dinner table – you name it. The son of a rock ‘n’ roll drummer, he first found his professional groove as lead guitarist and frontman for the R&B horn band, Downtown King, and the lead guitarist for Sasha Colette’s red-hot Americana backing band, The Magnolias. Now armed with his own water-tight rhythm section, the twenty-something rounds out Short & Company with the talents of Trevor Litteral (bass, backing…

    Join Us At Rupp Arena On Friday For Miranda Lambert, Jon Pardi And The Steel Woods!

    Miranda Lambert has been on the road early in 2018 on her new “Livin’ Like Hippies” tour. You’d be hard-pressed to name a female act bigger than she is in Country Music. So her stop in Lexington at Rupp Arena on Friday is a pretty dog-gone big deal. So join us for a performance from Scott Said & Backroads in the Civic Center before the show. Then join us inside as one of my favorite bands, The Steel Woods opens up the night. I saw these guys with Blackberry Smoke last year, before their album was released and they blew me away. I’m betting that trend continues. Can’t wait to…

    Bulls, Bands & Barrels Invade The Kentucky Horse Park With An Amazing Soundtrack

    Here in Kentucky, horses are royalty. Which is why the Kentucky Horse Park even exists in the first place. A few years ago, the Alltech Arena was built at the Horse Park when Lexington was chosen to host the World Equestrian Games. Since then, in my humble opinion, it’s the least utilized venue in our area and that’s truly a shame. So when I read about the premise behind Bulls, Bands and Barrels, I knew that this event was the PERFECT event to utilize this world-class facility. The idea behind Bulls, Bands and Barrels is pretty self-explanatory, but for reference, the event has competitions for bull riding, barrel racing with…
