Payin' Dues: The Kentucky Headhunters

A monumental collaboration between the southern rockers and a piano legend.

The excellent Meet Me In Bluesland is the result of a three-day recording session in 2003 with The Kentucky Headhunters and Johnnie Johnson. Johnson, who’d made his name playing piano with Chuck Berry, was fresh from guesting with The Rolling Stones at the Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas; The Kentucky Headhunters were firing on all cylinders. The album, which laid in the vaults until now, is an instant classic. “The minute Johnnie sat down with us, the music was a kind of ecstasy,” says guitarist/vocalist Richard Young.
