The Kentucky Headhunters, have announced 25 new tour dates to wrap up the summer and bring their rowdy, high-energy shows to fans nationwide well into fall. Long considered “Southern Rock Royalty” and credited for creating a hybrid of honky-tonk, blues, and southern rock that appeals to listeners of both rock and country music, The Kentucky Headhunters have tallied hits such as, “Dumas Walker,” “Walk Softly On This Heart Of Mine,” and “Oh, Lonesome Me.”

The long-haired boys from Edmonton, Kentucky, (Richard Young, Fred Young, Greg Martin and Doug Phelps), hit the road August through December on the tails of their latest album release, Meet Me in Bluesland, which hit stores on June 2 and is a collaborative effort of previously unreleased, original material featuring late, great pianist Johnnie Johnson — a Rock N Roll Hall of Famer and keyboardist for Chuck Berry. Meet Me In Bluesland showcases The Kentucky Headhunters’ familiar blues influence on a whole new level, and the album has created a momentum, fueled by its No. 1 Billboard Blues Album debut and top placement on the Billboard Americana Chart, that continues to carry the group into the upcoming dates.

Touting longevity many other acts can only dream of, The Kentucky Headhunters will take their 47 years of experience on the road affording fans the chance to catch what Billboard calls, “The Great American Rock ‘N’ Roll Band,” at the following upcoming stops:

Randy Houser Takes Viewers on the Run in Rollicking New Video for “We Went”

Randy Houser

Fans across the globe will want to tune in to CMT Hot 20 Countdown and CMT platforms including CMT.com and the CMT Artists App starting TODAY Saturday, August 1, as the scintillating new video for Randy Houser’s current single “We Went,” makes its weekend-long exclusive premiere. The Dustin Rikert-directed piece tells the story of the “Good Deed Bandits,” putting a Bonnie-and-Clyde-meet-Robin-Hood spin on an action-adventure chassis. Houser has garnered rave reviews for his “soulful delivery and the unrelenting arrangement” (Taste of Country) of the song, and recent live performances have inspired Billboard to proclaim “there is no reason that Houser shouldn’t receive some consideration for male vocalist of the year from the CMA and ACM. He’s simply that damn good.”

Paced by a string of vintage hot rods, the video races as fast as the song itself, which Rolling Stone Country called “a galloping road anthem,” astutely noting that “‘We Went’ finds Houser once again playing the role of a love-struck outlaw so vividly that it feels like a mini-movie. With a churning, you-and-me-against-the-world storyline and a thumping beat, Houser’s tongue-twisting tale (his delivery is the essence of rapid-fire) follows a couple of modern-day Bonnie and Clydes as they lead police on a wild chase.”

And they do just that as Houser and his love interest in the video – whom viewers first met in the seven-minute epic for his Top 5 smash, “Like A Cowboy,” also helmed by Rikert — take down a drug baron and distribute his ill-gotten gain to down-on-their-luck folks as they race around the Arizona desert. The video was shot in Tucson and the picturesque towns of Huachuca City and Sierra Vista in Cochise County earlier this summer. Veteran actor William Shockley, who also appeared in “Like A Cowboy,” lends his skills to create another colorful character in the new music video.

“We had such a blast with the ‘Like A Cowboy’ video and the production on that one was so high-quality that we wanted to do it again for this one,” said Houser. “But this time, my whole band got to be in the video and there’s a lot more action – everything from car chases to crash scenes to explosions. We just had a great time with it.”

“We Went” is the first taste of music from Houser’s forthcoming album, which will be his second for Stoney Creek Records and fourth studio album overall. Fans can hear new material like “We Went” out on the road this summer as Houser continues with Luke Bryan on the Kick the Dust Up Tour and plays select headlining shows and fair dates.

The 29th annual Music Row Ladies Golf Tournament (MRLGT) has announced that Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Chris Young is a title sponsor of this year’s event, to be held on Monday, August 17th at Old Natchez Country Club in Franklin, Tennessee. The MRLGT will once again benefit United Cerebral Palsy of Middle Tennessee (UCPMidTN) and is also sponsored by ASCAP, City National Bank, Tim McGraw and more.

“I’ve been part of the tournament for the last several years, caddying when I’m not on the road or sponsoring when I couldn’t be there in person,” Young commented. “I’m glad to support this fun event which helps benefit United Cerebral Palsy of Middle Tennessee.”

Chris Young’s career highlights include six #1 songs at country radio, four of which he co-wrote. His current single, “I’m Comin’ Over,” sold over 70K downloads in its first week and was co-written by Young along with Corey Crowder and Josh Hoge. “I’m Comin’ Over” is the platinum-selling artist’s thirteenth single to country radio and the first song to be released off Young’s fifth album for RCA Records Nashville, due out this fall.

Registration for the MRLGT is now open and team space is limited as the event sells out quickly each year. To register, please contact Suzanne Lee at slee@ascap.com.
