Here they come, roaring out of Kentucky as their always unpredictable and always dangerous selves, the Kentucky Headhunters!

The Headhunters turned the music world upside down with their ground-breaking debut album "Pickin' On Nashville," a record so visionary it became the model for the country boom of the 1990's. The album soared to gold status almost instantly. Songs such as "Walk Softly on This Heart of Mine" and "Dumas Walker" were big hits on country radio. In 1990, they picked up CMA awards for Vocal Group of the Year and Album of the Year.

Their jagged mixture of Southern music represents a change that opens up country music to a larger and more varied audience.

The Young brothers and their cousins, guitarist Greg Martin and bassist Anthony Kenney, have been playing together at the "practice house" where they started long before they were old enough to drive a car. The group has been called Aftermath, The Truce, and for 13 years, Itchy Brother.


  Kentucky Headhunters, Richard Young -- photo courtesy of Jack Terry - booking information  In 1986, Doug and Ricky Phelps joined up with the boys and the band finally settled on the name of the Kentucky Headhunters. In 1989 and 1991, the band released two landmark records "Pickin' On Nashville" and "Electric Barnyard."  These records helped change the face of country music forever.

  Kentucky Headhunters, Fred Young -- photo courtesy of Jack Terry - booking information  In 1992, Doug and Ricky left the band to pursue a duo career. Greg Martin stated, "It was a very emotional time for everyone involved." From 1992 through 1995, a friend of the band, Mark Orr stepped in as lead vocalist on the next two Headhunter albums, "Rave On" and the critically acclaimed "That'll Work" with legendary piano player, Johnnie Johnson.

Doug Phelps rejoined the Kentucky Headhunters at the beginning of 1996 and they haven't looked back since. The chemistry was so good that the band had 21 new songs written within the space of a month.

When it comes to influences, few bands have had as such a profound impact on the music of the 1990's as the Kentucky Headhunters. They came out and helped start a rockin' country thing and a lot of guys and gals took it somewhere else.

When reading about the Headhunters, one can't help but compare their life-long happiness, strife and their perseverance-to-succeed to the likes of Benny Goodman, Bob Wills, Elvis, the Grateful Dead and many, many more. The one thing that always is read between the lines, back then and today, with these acts and the Kentucky Headhunters – is good music!
