Gary Brewer and the Kentucky Ramblers Biography


Gary Brewer and the Kentucky Ramblers (GBKR), a family band that goes back 6 generations into their musical roots, has performed in all 50 US states, Canada, and Europe extensively since being formed in 1980. Today, 3 generations of Brewers, (Gary, his dad, and two sons) along with a banjo player, take the stage performing Bluegrass originals, Country music classics, foot-stomping Old-time Mountain Music, and good ole Gospel hymns; offering a little something for everybody. Gary has stamped their style of music as “Brewgrass”.

During his music career, Gary Brewer has recorded for multiple major record labels including Copper Creek and Rebel Records releasing 29 studio albums and a double live album (recorded on one of his European tours). Now, he has launched his own label called SGM Records (Stretch Grass Music). He has released an additional 20 albums on his label. GBKR’s most recent release, “Vintage Country Revival” brought great success charting at #1 on the Global Country Radio Charts and receiving 2 nominations in the 61st Grammy Awards (for Best Americana Album & Best American-Roots performance).

The entire Brewer clan has come by their musical talents honestly. They have true respect for their roots that reach back to the 1920s including third generation Brewer, Finley J. “Pap” Brewer Sr., performing with the Original Carter family. Because of such a great love for music being passed down for generations, Gary is a strong traditionalist. He has toured alongside many Bluegrass music legends throughout his career. He esteems being the last person to have commercially recorded with the late and great Bill Monroe on his “Guitar” CD one of his best accomplishments (later resulting in a nomination for Guitar Player of the Year at the IBMAs). Also, included in his 50 recordings is an All-star tribute to the King of Bluegrass, Jimmy Martin, before he passed. He called it “Jimmy Martin Songs for Dinner”.

“This boy right here is 100% Bluegrass! He comes from good stock.”
-Bill Monroe (The Father of Bluegrass)

“Gary is a great guitar picker and has a great voice. Him and his dad have the best show on the circuit!”
-Jimmy Martin (The King of Bluegrass)


Though he is a Bluegrass music veteran, Gary is the type that isn’t afraid to branch out to other genres. Gary has had chart-topping songs/CDs in Bluegrass as well as Americana, Old-time, Country, Gospel, and even Rock! Gary has been accredited as one of the only Bluegrass performers to record and have international radio chart success with Rock classic covers of Elvis, CCR, and Kansas.
In addition to being internationally touring musicians, GBKR currently host and run a 6-month Winter concert series called “Friday Night Bluegrass” (in Shepherdsville, KY just minutes away from their home), a Summer concert series called “Bluegrass Summer Nights” (in Simpsonville, KY at the largest outlet mall in the tristate area, the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass), and a community music festival called “Shin-dig in the Park” (in Shepherdsville, KY bi-annually). Gary and his boys are keeping Bluegrass music alive in the Bluegrass state.

Celebrating 40 years in the music business in the year 2020, Gary Brewer and the Kentucky Ramblers will be going on a 40-year Anniversary tour including the Bluegrass Standard cruise to Mexico, performing at the 50th Annual Dr. Ralph Stanley Hills of Home Festival, Poppy Mountain Bluegrass Festival, Bluegrass in the Hills, and so many more. To kick off the tour, will be a big bash including all of GBKR’s past members performing Gary’s hits alongside him. The event will be free-to-the-public and will also act as a CD Release party for the “40-year Anniversary Celebration” collaboration CD; featuring some of today’s legends (Russell Moore, Ralph Stanley II, Rhonda Vincent, The Travelin’ McCourys, The Isaacs, and more to be announced). The entire CD will feature all of Gary’s original Bluegrass tunes.

“It is such a blessing to have my Dad and Boys out here carrying on the Brewer Legacy and Tradition in Music. To step on stage show after show with Three Generations of Brewers is just AWESOME!”
-Gary Brewer (The Voice of Tradition)
