Thirty-six years is a long time for a band to survive in today’s cutthroat music jungle. The secret? Richard and Fred Young, along with cousin, Greg Martin and long time friend Doug Phelps, never set out to play music for a living. They were born to be together and they live to play music. Some of the Kentucky Headhunters have sold millions of albums, however, one thing remains the same…they are one of a kind, originals.
