Rock On! This Week's Sound Bites...6/30/22

"Yeah, The Kentucky Headhunters live," said guitarist Greg Martin with a laugh. "We’re alive and well; some people think we disappeared back in '91-'92 but we've never stopped. We've worked every year except for 2020 but we released a brand-new album back in October of last year called, "That's a Fact Jack!" so, it's actually been out for a while. You know how things work now, I mean it's not like back in the old days where they have you going to the label months before the release and you'd be working things; you'd be working radio, you'd be working print and after doing that you'd have a video; it's just a different time different way of doing things now. I mean, even though the album was released in October, we're still working it pretty active now and well, because a lot of people think we went away because there was an abandonment back in '92 when the Phelps brothers left and went to do their own thing, we kept going but a lot of folks think we just disappeared. Nope, we never went away, we released several albums since 1992 and this album; the last studio album we did before this one was in 2016 called "On Safari" and then just a little bit later we released a live album that was recorded in England but yeah man, we've been very actively working but you're right, I mean, you're not the first to say you thought we were not together, so don’t feel bad."
