And They’re Off! The Inaugural Railbird Festival At Keeneland

Lexington, Kentucky has never seen anything like the inaugural Railbird Festival. Over the last few decades, Lexington has had some great success in cultivating talent that goes on to become household names. What Lexington has not had, is a true destination festival. Unlike Louisville that hosts the Forecastle Festival and several Danny Wimmer Productions. That all changed when AC Entertainment (Promoters of Forecastle and Bonnaroo) partnered up with Keeneland.

Let’s be honest, horses and bourbon are what most folks associate with Kentucky. Music though, isn’t too far behind in terms of exports. Kentucky has produced artists like John Michael Montgomery, Montgomery Gentry, Sundy Best, Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, and of course our newest favorite son in Tyler Childers. Who happened to be one of the headliners at Railbird.

So where else could a classy festival that shines a light on horses, bourbon and music? My answer as a Kentuckian, is nowhere. Keeneland is the ultimate location that has plenty of room to grow with this festival.

Having said all that, we’re incredibly honored that we were given the opportunity to cover this festival and put our own little spin on the who, what and why Railbird is hopefully here to stay.

RAILBIRD GUIDE: 21 Must See Artists At The Railbird Festival

Ralbird is a brand new music festival that will take place at the grounds of Keeneland. Which is right here in the very center of our great Commonwealth.

Produced by AC Entertainment, who also produces Forecastle and Bonnaroo, decided to embrace three of Kentucky’s best exports in music, horses and bourbon. They also brought in West Sixth Brewing and our own little Mother Church in The Burl.

I’m guessing that after that last paragraph that you’re now all in. So I thought it would be a great idea to put together a list of artists that we feel simply can not be missed at Railbird. (more…)

Tyler Childers Comes Home To Kentucky To Ring In The New Year With Three Sold-Out Performances At The Louisville Palace

If you’re a reader of this site, you’ve likely read one of the many articles that I have written about Kentucky’s newest favorite son, Tyler Childers. If this is your first time here, feel free to take a look around, but more importantly, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy what we do here.

When an artist returns to their home state, it is always a love fest and attending those shows are my favorite activity in life. I’ve seen wonderfully talented folks return home for a show. Folks like Dwight Yoakam, Sundy Best, Chris Stapleton, Sturgill Simpson, The Kentucky Headhunters, Black Stone Cherry and of course, Mr. Tyler Childers.

Tyler’s meteoric rise has been an incredible journey to watch and one that we’ve been honored to help document. Late last year, we saw Tyler (more…)

The Moonshiner’s Ball – Day Two. Does It Get Any Better?

After one of the best days of live music that I’ve personally experienced, I came into day two of The Moonshiner’s Ball with lower expectations. Why? Because the bar was set so high, there was no way day two could top day one. Right? Wrong. Wrong on every level. (more…)
