GARY BREWER & THE
Gary Brewer & The Kentucky Ramblers are a family band with roots dating back six generations, having traveled the road performing in all 50 states, Canada and Europe extensively since forming in 1980. Today, GBKR takes the stage performing a fusion of American-Roots style music all their own called “Brewgrass.”
Despite being over four decades into his career, Gary Brewer is currently experiencing a new peak following the release of his 2020 album, 40th Anniversary Celebration. In addition to receiving critical acclaim from top publications including American Songwriter, Thrive Global, Medium, Authority Magazine, Country Rebel, The Boot, and countless others, it was also a huge hit on the Billboard charts. In total, it spent an astonishing 16 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Albums Chart, additionally being the
No. 3 best-selling project overall in 2021 (only behind two Sturgill Simpson projects). The album was also listed between mainstream artists Ariana Grande and Rob Zombie on the all-genre ‘Top Current Albums Sales’ year-end chart. It was supported by an innovative tour that saw the group strategically navigating through the pandemic era.
The band is carrying the momentum into 2022 with a new single, "Pass Along The Good”; co-written with multi-GRAMMY award-winning Americana Music Icon, Jim Lauderdale. The track was written and recorded at the Brewgrass Entertainment Studio. Released to widespread attention, “Pass Along The Good” was No. 1 on the Global Radio Indicator Americana/Grassicana chart as the top downloaded/played track of the entire month of January 2022 and is currently in heavy rotation on Sirius XM's Outlaw Country (ch 60). “Pass Along the Good” adds to the proliferating career of GBKR, who was up for “Best New Artist” on the initial round ballot in the 64th GRAMMY awards and recently featured in Billboard magazine’s 2022 GRAMMY contenders issue. Saving Country Music credited GBKR along with Billy Strings, Sturgill Simpson, Molly Tuttle, Sierra Hull, and Bela Fleck as the groups who have brought bluegrass back into the mainstream!
