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, GBKR takes 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 21 albums on his label. Among the SGM releases is “Kentucky Headlines and Heartbreak” including 3 tracks. “The Death of Floyd Collins” was the soundtrack for “The Floyd Collins Story” movie (released on Peridot Pictures). GBKR’s 2018 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).
Their most recent album on SGM “40th Anniversary Celebration” was released during the start of the COVID-19 Global Pandemic in May 2020. Climbing the Billboard Bluegrass Albums Chart to the #1 spot twice and holding in the top 5 for over 30 weeks, this CD Release garnered massive media attention for the group. The album critically praised by countless outlets, Midwest Record Reviews said “40th Anniversary Celebration” is “The Biggest Bluegrass record since ‘Dueling Banjos’!” GBKR was featured on/in the following outlets due to GBKR’s 40th Anniversary and its CD Release: Medium Magazine, Thrive Global, Music Row, NewsBreak, Take Effect, Bluegrass Today, Roots Music Report, The Bluegrass Situation, Vents Magazine, Bluegrass Unlimited, The Bluegrass Standard, and more. “40th Anniversary Celebration” was in 6 categories for the 63rd GRAMMY Awards and up for “Collaborative Recording of the Year” at the 2020 IBMAs. Needless to say, even without having the opportunity to promote their 40th Anniversary CD on the road, GBKR had one of their most successful years yet in 2020.
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.
