Each member of Kentucky Thunder Etta Britt, Vickie Carrico, Sheila Lawrence and Jonell Mosser is a formidable vocalist and bandleader who can pack clubs and raise roofs on their own. For 13 years, the four friends have come together for occasional four-on-the-floor concerts to shout hallelujah and share their talent for finding the soulful, ecstatic heart of the country-rock-R&B-roots music they all love. This seriously fun endeavor has always been a loose side project for the four Kentucky natives, and theyve never bothered to record as a group until now. Performing over two nights at their familiar home base, theyll record tracks for a live album and DVD, finally giving their legions of fans something more than sweet memories to take home. As rock n rhythm summits go, theyll take it to the mountaintop, as they always do.
