Based out of Greensburg Kentucky, KENTUCKY JUST US is a family group featuring tight harmonies, heartwarming lyrics, and a fresh sound that is all their own. While their music is varied, it is strongly influenced by Bluegrass, Old-Time Country Music, Gospel Music and family based values.
Kentucky Just Us has recently been honored by being selected as the First Artists in Residence of the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and Museum. The band also recently tied for second place in the KSMU Youth in Bluegrass Competition at Silver Dollar City, in Branson MO. They have also had a Facebook video of Rocky Top that has been viewed over 1.7 million times.
The band started out three years ago with just a guitar and vocals. Since that time they have added several other instruments including the banjo, fiddle, upright bass, and mandolin.
Kentucky Just Us has had the opportunity to learn from some of the finest musicians in the world, including the legendary fiddle player Buddy Spicher, and banjo extraordinaire Gary "Biscuit" Davis. At the start of 2018 they began attending HCTC's Kentucky School of Bluegrass and Traditional Music, being instructed by some very talented Bluegrass artists including Bobby and Dean Osborne, Virgil Bowlin, and Scott Napier.
Kentucky Just Us has also appeared on Tim Farmer's Homemade Jam, performed at the Ford Theater in the Country Music Hall of Fame, and has won several band competitions. Recently they have expanded into songwriting, and are working on several recording projects, as well as being slated to appear on "Our Mountains" - a TV show covering Eastern Kentucky.

Just recently Kentucky Just Us has sold out of their first CD which was recorded around 2 years ago - The Land of Bluegrass. The group has just finished recording their next project Kentucky Just Us - Recorded Live. The project should be released by mid-summer, to soon be followed by an EP that they will be recording with their mentor and friend Buddy Spicher.
Finally the group hopes to have yet another CD out by the end of the year or early in 2019 with several selections that they have written themselves.
