THE KENTUCKY HEADHUNTERS
Join us for another FREE Friday night concert on the river with 90s Country megastars The Kentucky Headhunters
The Kentucky Headhunters, declared “the great American rock ‘n’ roll band” by Billboard magazine, began their professional journey in 1968 when brothers Fred and Richard Young and cousins Greg Martin and Anthony Kenney formed the Southern blues-rock band Itchy Brother. The band morphed into The Kentucky Headhunters in 1986. Their first album, 1989’s Pickin’ On Nashville, was released by Mercury Records and surprised the world, becoming a bona fide hit, selling over two million copies. The album won a Grammy Award, three Country Music Awards, an American Music Award and an Academy Of Country Music Award. It spawned four consecutive Top 40 Country hits. Currently, the band is made up of Richard Young, Fred Young, Greg Martin and Doug Phelps.
Hailing from the hollers and hills of West Virginia, Ducain makes music in the dusty places of the American south where tradition and progress come to fight. Lost love, envy, family, brawling and repentance are all mentioned here.
Jeremy Sargent writes, sings, and plays with Southern soul, while Austin Lewis fills the spaces with melodic fire. Rich Mills and Jared Holley set the foundation and shake the ground with rolling thunder.
The band comes together to labor with one another to create something bigger and better than themselves.
Ducain, a Rock & Roll band, takes inspiration from bands such as Kings of Leon, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Free, The Rolling Stones, and countless others, helping create a sound all their own.
