    Black Stone Cherry’s Kentucky Pride Was On Full Display At The Paramount In Ashland

    For a nice warm Friday night, the Paramount Arts Center was the place to be, and for the number of people that showed up, they knew it was going to be a good time! It was a night full of some good ol’ Southern Rock music! The first band to get on stage was none other than Northeastern Kentucky’s very own Devil’s Creek Special! They opened up for The Georgia Thunderbolts and Black Stone Cherry, but with the amount of energy that they had you would’ve thought they were headlining. And they had a killer cover of “Folsom Prison Blues” by Johnny Cash, and the Paramount was in a full…

    Ten Black Stone Cherry Songs That Flew Under The Radar

    Let’s have some fun!!! I chose to feature 10 Black Stone Cherry songs that I personally feel have been massively overlooked and very underappreciated. I’m lucky to claim these fellas as friends and since I have a long history with the band, I felt that this article would be the perfect fuel to keep the Capture Kentucky (Lonely) Train rolling. Ha! This list will consist of some deep album cuts and some bonus tracks. I’ll also toss in my personal favorite Black Stone Cherry song to top it all off for ya. Sit back and let’s take a little musical trip as friends. Shall we?

    Kentucky’s Black Stone Cherry Unleashes ‘The Human Condition’

    I’ve been blessed to cover an amazing array of bands and artists over the last eight years or so. I’ve also worked with just as many as a talent buyer. As I look back at the body of my work, there is one band that has always been a constant. That band is Edmonton, Kentucky’s Black Stone Cherry. From booking shows, to creating graphics and posters, to covering the band on just about every Kentucky home show, I’ve given a lot to “fight the good fight” for these fellas. There’s a reason for that, and it’s likely not what you’re thinking. The obvious answer is their music. Yet, while that’s…

    Black Stone Cherry Brought The Party To Pikeville To Close Out Their 2019 Tour

    When someone says, “I’m headed out to a rock show.” Pikeville is usually not the first city you would think of, but on Sunday, Pikeville was THE place to be. Edmonton, Kentucky’s Black Stone Cherry invaded the newly renamed Appalachian Wireless Arena. Sunday was the bands’ final performance of 2019, so you best believe they were ready and eager to take care of business, but before that could happen, another band of Kentuckians kicked the night off. The Josephines are a name

    Black Stone Cherry are a band that I hold dearly next to my heart. I’ve seen these young men perform more than any other artists out there. Having said that, there’s got to be a good reason, right? Well there definitely is. These four young men have pumped out some of the beqst music around for the last 13 years. They know who they are, but they also know

    Black Stone Cherry Electrifies On Their “Carry Me On Down The Road” Tour At Cincinnati’s Bogarts!

    It had been 25 years since I’ve been to a show at Bogart’s. The Venue hasn’t changed much but the area around sure has! Changed for the better, best I could tell. I did learn one thing though, soccer fans are hard core! The Cincinnati FC was having a match near Bogart’s, the fans were gathering together for what I was about to find out was a march to the stadium in the pouring rain, most were soaking wet, banging drums while chanting/singing. Hardcore I tell ya! Bowling Green Kentucky’s own The Josephines took the Bogart’s stage first. They describe themselves as “a rag tag group of rock n roll…
