The Kentucky Headhunters are an influential genre-blending country rock group whose early albums were embraced by both traditional country and rock n roll fans, and the band maintains a cult following among both alt-country and general southern music fans to this day. One early review described their sound as “Bill Monroe meets Cream.” With a solid seven studio albums under their belt, the group has won three Country Music Association awards, an Academy of Country Music award, and a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal.
The band currently has the line-up of Greg Martin, Doug Phelps, Fred Young, and Richard Young. They are essentially a southern rock group that adapted their sound to straight-forwards country music in many of their songs. Their music has crossed a number of genre boundaries, at various times ranging from country and bluegrass to blues to hard rock that borders on traditional metal.
The Kentucky Headhunters is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
