Clay City, KY
Behind the hard driving, raw and rhythmic music of the band lies the heart and soul of the true Kentucky spirit. It is prevalent in songs that cut straight through to the average, everyday person. Although the band is true to their own no holds barred style, they have been heavily influenced by such greats as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Marshall Tucker and Bob Seger with the story telling of Johnny Cash and the vocal growl of Bob Dylan.
After the release of their first CD, "Rockin' the Road" with HUBA Records, they garnered a good rotation of radio play. Their fans begged for more, so the band has just released their second album with producer Randy Hayes of J.D. Crow, Keith Whitley and Tanya Tucker fame to release their sophomore album, Long Hard Road.
The Kentucky Blue Collar Band formed in the foothills of Eastern Kentucky in early 2004 and have found a way to stay true to the music by returning to the all important story line while still maintaining the musical quality of today's popular songs. The band's stage show is energetic and action packed from start to finish and matched by none. Deidra Hall of 92.9 the Bear said, "Their show should not be missed."
The band has now been playing Southern Rock and Rockabilly music together for over 5 years while bringing many different influences and styles to their sound to create the perfect blend - a little Blues, a little Rock and a Southern Country Boy attitude round out the sound and dynamics of the Kentucky Blue Collar Band.
