The Kentucky Headhunters To Set Sail For The Second Time On Rock Legends Cruise


GRAMMY award-winning Southern Blues-Rockers Continue Touring in 2017 to Support New Album, ‘On Safari’

The Kentucky Headhunters have been taking fans on a musical adventure for five decades, with no signs of slowing down in 2017. The band is taking their energetic and unruly live show off-shore on this year’s SOLD OUT Rock Legends Cruise in support of their brand-new album On Safari.

The Headhunters will venture out to sea with some of rock music’s greats including Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, REO Speedwagon, Creedence Clearwater Revisted, Thin Lizzy, The Marshall Tucker Band, John Mayall, Todd Rundgren and more. The Rock Legends Cruise sets sail on Jan. 19 on Royal Caribbean’s Independence of the Seas.

“It feels great to be returning to the Rock Legends Cruise. There’s no thrill quite like playing alongside some of the iconic bands of the 70s and 80s that influenced our career,” said Richard Young of The Kentucky Headhunters. “We’re proud to be a part of this not only because of these bands we are such fans of, but also because the proceeds of the cruise will benefit a great cause – the Native American Heritage Association.”

Rock music fans lucky enough to have snagged tickets will see several performances from the Headhunters and will likely hear iconic favorites like “Walk Softly on This Heart of Mine” and “Dumas Walker” as well exciting new songs from On Safari such as “Beaver Creek Mansion,” “Deep South Blues Again” and “God Loves A Rolling Stone.” On Safari features 10 original songs as well as covers of Charlie Daniels’ “Way Down Yonder” and Alice Cooper’s “Caught In A Dream.” On Safari is a Plowboy Records/Practice House Records joint venture and is available here.
