What we are about



The Old Time Preachers Quartet with some local talent at Sand Spring Baptist Church in September, 2019. From left are George Frederic, Bob Sellers of the OTPQ, Chris Daniel of The Noblemen, Chris Woodyard of The Capital City Boys, and Adam Borden and Mike Holcomb of the OTPQ.

Kentucky Sings is just a fun place about music in and around the Bluegrass!

What I am about is easier said by what this site is not. It’s NOT any of the following

  • Dedicated to any one form of music. While our preferences are Classic Country and Southern Gospel — translation, “old school” — as long as someone is praising God is all that matters.
  • A news-gathering organization. While we will post news of interest, we make no claims to be the only place to get the latest on what’s happening in the Kentucky music world. I post what I can. We prefer to share feature stories and columns.
  • A music review site. While we go to lots of concerts and buy lots of music, we could not tell you about mixing, mastering or even reading music. But we can  put in a CD with the best of them and play some instruments for fun! And to us, that is what music really is all about — enjoying a form of art as one of God’s blessings.

We are partial to Southern Gospel and Country music and that shows on this website. Our record, tape and CD collections vary from Elvis to The Goodmans to Olivia to Waylon and Willie.

On the guitar, John might start picking or strumming something from Bill Gaither to the Monkees to our favorites, The Oak Ridge Boys.

We have no visions of standing on stage at the Ryman or the National Quartet Convention. The bottom line is this site is intended to glorify God above all.

Like music, this site will change over time. It’s just part of the growing process. Most of all, we just want to have fun in this labor of love.  We hope you will to!

Thanks for reading,
