Gary Brewer & The Kentucky Ramblers Announce 40th Anniversary Celebration Tour

Group Returns to the Studio for Upcoming Music Slated for 2020 Release

For over four decades, chart-topping singer/songwriter Gary Brewer has turned heads with his hard-driving sound and attention-capturing voice, which encompasses a variety of Bluegrass, Roots and Gospel influences. In celebration of the momentous milestone, Gary Brewer & The Kentucky Ramblers are excited to announce the commencement of their 40th Anniversary Celebration Tour, which will take place throughout 2020. It includes stops throughout the United States, along with appearances in Europe. “We’re so geared up and excited about the 40-year celebration. Hard to believe it has been 40 years since I started as a professional artist running up-and-down the roads performing,” says Gary Brewer. “It is such a blessing to tour with my two sons and my father. Three generations of Brewer’s on the stage every night across the country is just simply awesome. Fans can expect a high energy and entertaining show chuck-full of Bluegrass, vintage Country, Americana, Gospel and Old Time Mountain Music, covering my original / signature songs, along with six generations of Brewer repertoire. I have even been known to throw in an Elvis tune or two…” Lead singer Gary Brewer has garnered attention and gained respect from some of the biggest names of all-time across multiple music genres. Having recorded and toured with music icons like Bill Monroe, J.D. Crowe, Uncle Josh Graves, Doyle Lawson, Larry Sparks and Dave Evans, that inspiration is on full display in the band’s unique style. At one point, he even got the attention of late Country maverick Porter Wagner, who said “Gary Brewer has a great group, works hard on his act and is an excellent Bluegrass singer." ‘Father of Bluegrass’ Bill Monroe was also once quoted as saying, “This boy right here is 100% Bluegrass! He comes from good stock.” The tour will see the award-winning band taking their one-of-a-kind stage show to venues and festivals coast-to-coast in the United States. Brewer and company are also excited to announce some very special tour dates in Europe, which will take place in May. Including stops in Denmark, Germany, Luxembourg, Switzerland and England, there are plenty of opportunities for international audiences to catch an upcoming show (see full schedule below). The dates will follow the conclusion of their residency in Simpsonville, Kentucky at Brewgrass Entertainment, which has 11 more shows. As the celebration continues, Gary Brewer & The Kentucky Ramblers have several other surprises in store, including new music coming soon. In addition to a new single, a full-length album will accompany it, and there is no shortage of star-power on the project.
