    Music Is Medicine. Arlo McKinley, El Dorodo, And Cole Chaney Helped Us All Heal On The Fallsburg Summer Stage.

    Fallsburg, Kentucky. A place that I had never set foot in before Saturday. Situated along Highway 23, near Louisa, Fallsburg has taken a major step forward in improving its tourism. As the Fallsburg Summer Stage was finally living up to its’ name by hosting a two-day music festival with some of the best musical talent around, but there was so much more to this little gem. Nestled in a beautiful valley, smack dab in the middle of an RV park, Fallsburg shined like the gem it is. Lots of space for parking and camping, but it was the music that brought on the smiles. There were wine tours and tastings…

    Die Midwestern. Arlo McKinley Delivers A Hauntingly Beautiful, Yet Painful, Collection Of Truth

    Cincinnati, OH – For many Kentuckians, the name Arlo McKinley is immediately recognized as a stellar songwriter that is able to deliver like few others can even imagine. Arlo’s transparency is his secret weapon and his ability to be brutally honest is the reason why so many relate to his stories. If you aren’t familiar with Arlo or his music, then allow me to introduce you to your new favorite artist. I am not kidding. When you speak of an artist that has “paid their dues,” Arlo is the perfect embodiment of that sentiment. McKinley is a Cincinnati native that has made his own way. He’s played nearly every imaginable…

    Unforgettable. Day Three At Kickin’ It On The Creek

    The last day of Kickin’ It On The Creek has a strange effect on ya. You have been anxiously awaiting the experience for months, or all year if this wasn’t your first time on Ross’ Creek. When you wake up on the last day, you’re met with many waves of emotions. Excitement, knowing what’s headed your way. Joy, as you recount all the wonderful memories you’ve already made. Guilt, what did I do to deserve to be here? Inspired, you want to hug as many necks as possible and tell your friends you love them. Thankful, for every conversation and bear hug you have already been given. And finally, peace.…

    You Have Got To Be Kidding Me. Day Two At Kickin’ It On The Creek

    Welcome back!! After a peaceful night of much-needed rest, I started my day off with Luna and The Mountain Jets. David and Teresa Prince are two of my favorite folks on this planet. A day with those two in it is always a wonderful day. I have never, nor will I ever, hear anyone say a bad word about them. Their set was the morning fuel that I needed to get going. Great music, warm smiles and seeing so many friends up and at it to see these folks was perfect. My favorite performances were “Pepsi Girl”, “That Thing You Said”, “Firefly”, and of course, “KIOTC.” Next up was Kyle…

    Kickin’ It On The Creek (KIOTC) is the music festival that you never knew you needed to attend. Now you may ask, “What are you talking about?

Now don’t get me wrong here as we get started, large festivals have an importance and they serve their purpose well, but with these articles, I want to show you that what I say is the Gospel truth.

    Do’s, Don’ts And Must-See Artists At Kickin’ It On The Creek

    Last year, we were invited to cover Kickin’ It On The Creek. It’s an event that is flat-out magical. For a music junkie like myself, Kickin’ It is our Disney World. Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Little Ross Creek is the home of the Roberts family. Over the last five years, every September, the Roberts farm transforms into the heart and soul of the thriving Kentucky music community. With a stage in the front yard, the acreage welcomes roughly 1500 fans and artists. Kickin’ It On The Creek sold-out this year without even announcing the lineup. Read that again, Kickin’ It On The Creek sold-out this year…

    Music Rules! Our Recap Of The Music Rules Fest At The Jenny Wiley Amphitheatre

    The Music Rules Fest is a partnership between the Mountain Arts Center and Capture Kentucky. It is an event that I am incredibly proud of and that’s exactly why this article has been so difficult for me to write. The City of Prestonsburg now has control of the Jenny Wiley Amphitheatre, which is located in the gorgeous Jenny Wiley State Park. They have allowed the Mountain Arts Center to run the venue as a sister venue to the 1044 seated theatre at the MAC. The city has begun a remodel of the venue and there are plans to further improve the amphitheater. Restoring it to it’s once prominent place in…

Thanks for everything and we’ll see you at the…

    Kickin’ It On The Creek 2018 – Saturday Edition

    The crickets, frogs and birds provided the soundtrack for a peaceful nights rest and it was once again time to do some kickin’ on the creek.The music started early on my day two and the fact that Mr. Childers would be playing later on Saturday night, I fully expected the crowd to be much thicker. The Wine Tree Band began the day for folks, but I have to admit they didn’t start mine. So my apologies to those folks. The sirens song that the frogs and crickets sang kept me in bed until about 9:15. As I awoke and scanned the schedule for the day, I suddenly realized that Saturday…

    Kickin’ It On The Creek 2018 – Friday Edition

    Kickin’ On The Creek is one of the most difficult festivals that I have ever been asked to describe. Why you ask? Thank goodness! I wasn’t sure how to move forward. So I’ll start here, family. The Roberts family has turned their beautiful homestead into a music venue. Wait, what? No seriously. Hear me out. Deep in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, part of the Daniel Boone Forest, technically in Lee County, Byron Roberts and his family have seriously turned their home into a music venue. What seems impossible is actually flat-out magical. Give me another example of such selflessness. I’ll wait…..You have nothing? That’s what I thought. The…
