The Kentucky Headhunters

The Kentucky Headhunters are fresh off of the 2015 release of their new blues album Meet Me In Bluesland, (released by Alligator Records), featuring the pianist Rolling Stone called "the greatest sideman in rock and roll" – Johnnie Johnson. The album received rave reviews from outlets like No Depression which writes, "Age has only improved this offering, rockin' Appalachia-billy that'll put a big ole grin on your face," and Blues Blast Magazine which adds, "The beautiful piano work and synergy between Johnson and the Headhunters is something that should not be missed. It is a raucous and wonderful album." The project was also named No. 12 on the list of the most-played albums of 2015 published by Living Blues Magazine. UK-based The Blues Magazine gave Meet Me In Bluesland a slot in the Top 50 essential rock and blues albums of the year.

About The Kentucky Headhunters

Known as "Southern rock Royalty" and the "great American rock 'n' roll band," The Kentucky Headhunters have maintained a longevity most acts can only dream about. With a GRAMMY® Award, CMA Album of the Year Award, two CMA Vocal Group of the Year Awards, two Top 10 charting albums, and four consecutive Top 40 hits. The "Heads" are credited for creating a unique blend of honky-tonk, blues, and Southern rock that appeals to the toughest music critics and listeners of all kinds. Getting their start in 1968, brothers Fred and Richard Young and cousins Greg Martin and Anthony Kenney, from Edmonton, Kentucky, formed Itchy Brother, which later morphed into The Kentucky Headhunters after Kenny departed and Doug Phelps joined The Band. Their first album, Pickin' On Nashville, (1989), surprised the world when it became a major success, selling over two million copies. Their newest album Meet Me in Bluesland, hit stores on June 2 and includes the last vocals ever recorded of the late, great pianist Johnnie Johnson - Rock N Roll Hall of Famer and legendary keyboardist for Chuck Berry. Meet Me In Bluesland features previously unreleased, original material, and showcases The Kentucky Headhunters' familiar blues sound. The album reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Blues Album chart the week of its debut. It also garnered top placement on the Billboard Americana Chart. Yahoo! Music hailed, "The album is a rocking joy through and through, an unexpected romp that's as good to hear as it must have been to perform." The Kentucky Headhunters still tour extensively throughout the United States and will soon be commencing a European tour in 2016. For more information on The Kentucky Headhunters, please visit
