The Kentucky Headhunters at the Hochatown Saloon
Grammy-winning Southern blues rockers The Kentucky Headhunters are celebrating the release of Meet Me In Bluesland, their previously unissued 2003 recording with their friend, the late, legendary pianist and Rock and Roll Hall Of Famer, Johnnie Johnson.
The Kentucky Headhunters, declared “the great American rock ‘n’ roll band” by Billboard magazine, debuted with 1989’s Pickin’ On Nashville, released by Mercury Records. It 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. The New York Times describes the band as “rowdy, twanging, wild-eyed Southern rockers [who] perform songs that insist on down-home roots. The Headhunters bring a sense of bar-band recklessness, riffing with unchecked muscle, combining country roots with ferocious, bluesy hard rock.”
