The Kentucky Headhunters built a following after playing 90-minute performances twice a month on The Chitlin’ Show, a radio program on WLOC in Munfordville, Kentucky. As the group’s popularity continued to grow, they sent an eight-song demo to Mercury, who signed them soon after. Their original demo tape was remixed, becoming the basis of The Kentucky Headhunters’ first album, 1989’s Pickin’ on Nashville, which received overwhelmingly positive reviews upon its release and quickly became a hit. “Dumas Walker” reached number 15 on the charts in the spring of 1990, followed by the group’s biggest hit, the number six “Oh, Lonesome Me.” With a hybrid sound of honky-tonk, blues, and Southern rock, The Kentucky Headhunters appeal to fans of both rock and country music alike.
