Three decades ago this year, GRAMMY® Award-winning southern rock, blues and country group The Kentucky Headhunters released their debut album, Pickin’ on Nashville. Following its original release on October 17, 1989 on Mercury Records, the hit record went on to sell over two million copies, earning the band multi-platinum selling status.  

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the smash album, the band has announced a rare live performance in Nashville: “The Kentucky Headhunters: Pickin’ on Nashville and Beyond.” The concert is set for Friday, June 28 at 8:00 p.m. at The Basement East. Budding southern rock group The Georgia Thunderbolts will open for the band.

“The Heads have traveled the universe musically, starting as Itchy Brother in 1968, on the family farm in the infamous Practice House, then morphing into The Kentucky Headhunters in 1986,” says founding member Richard Young. “We have lived a blessed and charmed life with family, friends and music. Please come be with us at this event to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Pickin’ on Nashville, the album that changed our lives many times over.”

Tickets are $24.00 in advance and $28.00 on the day of show. Purchases can be made at thebasementnashville.com. The Basement East is located at 917 Woodland Street in Nashville.
