These Halls Are All Decked Out! Castle Noel Celebrates Christmas, Hollywood Style!
Christmas is a holiday that means different things to different people. It’s the time of year, no matter what a person’s belief system may be, they try and treat people how we should treat people everyday. In the cold and often bitter winter season, the human spirit brightens up our world and reminds us all of our humanity and allows us to show our appreciation to those we love. Christmas in Hollywood captures that spirit and then serves it back to us in the form of heartwarming stories of love, family and often times nostalgia. That’s where Medina, Ohio enters this article. Wait, what? That’s right, Medina, Ohio. See, the…

Kentucky Artists Take The Show On The Road To Denver For Appalachia On The Rocks
Kentucky music is no longer a secret and people all across the country are taking notice. You may ask, “What makes you say that?” Glad you asked. Because we have been invited to be involved in tons of Festivals and shows in several different states in just the past year. First we made it out to Iowa for Hinterland. An event that featured three Kentuckians in Sturgill Simpson, Tyler Childers, and Wheeler Walker, Jr. (Review here) We then invaded Nashville for three shows. We partnered up with Whiskey Soldier during the SEC Tournament for a Kentucky Takeover show with artists like Tyler Booth, Senora May, Jericho Woods, and Timmy Dunn.…
My Old Kentucky Home…In Denver. Tyler Childers Plays To A Sold-Out Crowd at Red Rocks
What if I told you that a young man by the name of Tyler Childers played to about thirty people at the Moonshiners Ball, just 2-1/2 years ago? Would you believe me? Well, ya should, because I was there. That show was my first time seeing Tyler perform. He was all by himself, kicked back, sitting in a chair, singing away at a, if I remember correctly, 2pm set. He had on torn-up jeans, muddy boots and was wearing a “Hawaiian Shirt.” I thought to myself, “Does this fella deserve the hype that my friends have heaped upon him?” Now I had listened to his first album, as well as…

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…
Black Stone Cherry ‘Carried Me On Down The Road’ To Tennessee’s Cumberland Caverns
Kentucky’s Black Stone Cherry needs no introduction, but the venue that I saw them in, definitely does. I have been wanting to attend a show at The Volcano Room at Cumberland Caverns ever since I laid eyes on photos folks have posted. Now Cumberland Caverns isn’t in Kentucky, it is in Tennessee, so I simply waited until a Kentucky angle made sense for me to put over 8 hours behind the wheel in one day. Finally ,the perfect show popped up! Black Stone Cherry, Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown, and Bowling Green, Kentucky’s own, The Josephines. I will admit that I have already seen all three bands, so I had…
Nashville Is Officially Blue! The Kentucky Takeover At Marathon Music Works Brought The Party And The Soundtrack!
Nashville, Tennessee is considered the home of Country Music. So when I was approached by Daniel Collins (Whiskey Soldier) to help develop a Kentucky Takeover that would showcase Kentucky Musicians during the SEC Tournament, it was a no-brainer. I’m in. Let’s make a new tradition and shoehorn Kentucky into Nashville! After several phone calls and many emails, a date was set and the wheels began spinning quickly. Which is a positive sign for sure. The only drawback to scheduling during the SEC Tournament, is you don’t know seeding and game times. Turns out that Kentucky played at 6pm, when the Kentucky Takeover was to begin.
The Who, What, When, Where And Why. The Kentucky Takeover In Nashville At Marathon Music Works
When I was approached about helping Whiskey | Soldier develop Kentucky Takeover, my mind, as it often does, began racing at all of the potential opportunities. As our conversations progressed, the two things that I locked in on were simple. 1. How can I help make this a yearly event so we can funnel Kentucky’s talent to Nashville? 2. Who best represents the music happening in our Commonwealth? Dan Collins (Whiskey | Soldier) and I came up with some really good ideas that I truly believe will make this show not only successful, but also sustainable. It’s one thing to dream something up, but it’s even more difficult to make…
Tyler Childers, Kelsey Waldon, Justin Wells, The Wild Rumpus and Half Bad Bluegrass Do Their Part In Healing Appalachia.
Before we get into this article, I want to take a moment to ask for your help. Kentucky, West Virginia and Virginia are facing a terrible opioid epidemic. Organizations like Healing Appalachia assist folks with recovery, as well as setting up programs to help prevent addiction. As an Eastern Kentuckian, much like Mr. Tyler Childers, I want to help where I can. I was asked to donate some prints which were sold at the event. Here is where you come in. If you weren’t at this show, please consider donating online. Together, we can make a change. If able, please donate here. Thank you.
