    Album Review: Grayson Jenkins Is ‘Turning Tides’ With A Brand New Album And Tour In 2021

    With several Kentuckians currently occupying spots on most any music chart you look at, one would have to agree that Kentucky holds an embarrassment of riches within her musical arms. The love and support of her music family finds a new way to impress me on a daily basis. So I want to re-introduce you to a young man that is about to make his own push and hopefully climbs his way up a few of those charts himself. Grayson Jenkins may or may not be a new name to you, either way you’re gonna find something you’ll like on ‘Turning Tides.’ That’s the brand new album from Mr. Jenkins,…

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…

    Welcome Home. Day One At Kickin’ It On The Creek

    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? It can’t be any different than every other music festival.” That’s where you’re wrong and if you choose to believe that and close this article now, it is 100% your loss. 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. I’ve covered festivals of all sizes and I assure you with everything in me…

    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…

    Arthur Hancock Is Taking Us Back To The Country With ‘Alive At Hillbilly Central’

    Arthur Hancock is a name that you likely know, but if not let me fill ya in a bit. Arthur is a Kentuckian that has helped create a ton of music that has provided the soundtrack to many of our road trips around here. From his time with Tyler Childers in the band High Wall to the progressive bluegrass sounds of The Wooks, Arthur has the respect of his peers and the adoration of his fans. Things changed for Arthur and he decided to step back and reevaluate his path. Once a prominent banjo player, Arthur suffered a thumb injury and was forced to move to only playing the guitar.…

    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…

    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.
