The Kentucky Headhunters are an influential genre-blending country rock group whose early albums were embraced by both traditional country and rock n roll fans, and the band maintains a cult following among both alt-country and general southern music fans to this day. One early review described their sound as "Bill Monroe meets Cream." With a solid seven studio albums under their belt, the group has won three Country Music Association awards, an Academy of Country Music award, and a Grammy Award for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal,
The band currently has the line-up of Greg Martin, Doug Phelps, Fred Young, and Richard Young. They are essentially a southern rock group that adapted their sound to straight-forwards country music in many of their songs. Their music has crossed a number of genre boundaries, at various times ranging from country and bluegrass to blues to hard rock that borders on traditional metal.
