GBKR, a family band that goes back 6 generations into their musical roots, has performed in all 50 US states, Canada, and Europe extensively since being formed in 1980. Today, 3 generations of Brewers, (Gary, his dad, and two sons) along with a banjo player, take the stage performing Bluegrass originals, Country music classics, foot-stomping Old-time Mountain Music, and good ole Gospel hymns; offering a little something for everybody. Gary has stamped their style of music as “Brewgrass”.

  During his music career, Gary Brewer has recorded for multiple major record labels including Copper Creek releasing 29 studio albums and a double live album (recorded on one of his European tours). Now, he has launched his own label called SGM Records (Stretch Grass Music). He has released an additional 20 albums on his label. GBKR’s most recent release, “Vintage Country Revival” brought great success charting at #1 on the Global Country Radio Charts and receiving 2 nominations in the

61st Grammy Awards (for Best Americana Album & Best American-Roots performance).

          The entire Brewer clan has come by their musical talents honestly. They have true respect for their roots that reach back to the 1920s including third-generation Brewer, Finley J. “Pap” Brewer Sr., performing with the Original Carter family. Because of such a great love for music being passed down for generations, Gary is a strong traditionalist. He has toured alongside many Bluegrass music legends throughout his career. (Bill Monroe, Jimmy Martin, J.D. Crowe, Uncle Josh Graves, and many more) (...read more)

The official music video for Gary Brewer and the Kentucky Ramblers' new single, "Paradise" (featuring EmiSunshine), from GBKR's "Vintage Country Revival" CD

(released on SGM records).



It was a true honor to be able to play at the Storytellers Hideaway Farm and Museum (known as Johnny Cash’s personal getaway) this past Saturday. GBKR enjoyed being able to play on the same stage Johnny and June Carter played on many times at what was previously the Sur Sound Studio building (where many legendary recordings occurred).
Special thanks to our friends Remington Ryde.

We are so proud of the great success our 2019 Fall Shin-dig in the Park Music Festival was this year (October 5th 2019)!

Gary Brewer featured on Dixie Hall's QUILT!!!

Gary was a close personal friend of Tom T. and Dixie Hall, recording several compositions. Gary enjoyed recording in the Hall's studio and him and his family spent the night with them on several occasions. Miss Dixie and Tom T. wrote "Elvis On Velvet, Monroe On Grass" special for Gary, and he was honored to work with them. Gary is pleased to have his name and hit song "Elvis On Velvet, Monroe On Grass" on Dixie's quilt, which is now a featured exhibit at the International Bluegrass Music Museum (along with a personalized brick Gary has on the Museum sidewalk).
