"Ted Nugent & Grimsley Rose At East Kentucky Expo Arena"

Rock N Roll was alive and well Friday night in Pikeville, Kentucky. The coal mining town doesn’t often see kick ass rock bands like Ted Nugent and Grimsley Rose. The town usually sways more toward country and bluegrass when it comes to music. But not on this faithful night. The crowd was pumped before the first note was struck at the East Kentucky Exposition Center. Ted of course is touring in support of his 2014 release ‘Shut Up And Jam’ which features one of the best rock songs released in quite a while. “She’s Gone” featuring the Red Rocker himself Sammy Hagar. The honor of opening the show went to a rock band that consisted of Kentucky born musicians. The members hailing from various towns around the Bluegrass State like London, Paintsville and Salyersville they pretty much felt at home in Pikeville.

Grimsley Rose made their way to the stage and quickly made themselves some new fans. Fists were pumping through the air and some ladies were dancing through the aisles. Singer Cameron Jayne’s powerful vocals caught the fans attention immediately. They played through several songs and asked the crowd if they were ready for Ted Nugent, while the majority of the crowd clapped and screamed one gentleman up front had already became a super fan and yelled back “We are loving you guys!” The bands incredible guitar player in Todd Stricklin you may remember from the killer band Superunknown. He made the guitar playing look so easy, and I assure you it’s not as easy as he makes it look. It takes immense talent to play flawlessly like he did on stage. A song or two into their set singer Cameron Jayne also got his guitar out, and it is one of the most beautiful guitars I’ve seen. They took the time to detail the inspiration behind one of their songs. In 2012 a tornado ripped through the small town of Salyersville, Kentucky and left nothing but devastation in its path. The song “Won’t Miss You A Bit” was inspired by the tragedy that struck that day and all the destruction it caused the thousands of people in the community. Pikeville being so close to Salyersville the crowd instantly had a connection to the song. It was by far one of the hardest hitting songs the band unleashed on our ears. If you haven’t heard anything by the band you need to pick up their EP ‘Truth to Power’ now on iTunes. - Metal Nexus

Originally from neighboring towns of each other… Cameron Jayne and Todd Stricklin always had a musical kinship and a willful determination. Each had been searching for musicians that shared those qualities through past bands and projects. Upon meeting, things just clicked and their journey began. Cameron and Todd both had spent the majority of their musical lives in Lexington, KY and when their paths finally crossed, the results were unlike anything out there. Igniting a matchup of noise no one imagined would work. 

The idea essentially was to combine 80’s rock with a 90’s flare. Blending the two genres to form something unique. Taking rock guitars, pop sensibilities, open choruses and topping it all off with a driving rhythm section. Grimsley Rose has accomplished what they sat out to do. Now based in Nashville, TN, and Lexington, KY the band has honed their sound and caught the attention of Chris Henderson. Chris is the guitarist of the rock mega group 3 Doors Down and he produced their debut EP titled Truth to Power at Rivergate Studios in Nashville.  The EP was very well received, so much that 102.7 The Buzz in Nashville named Grimsley Rose's "Know My Name" as one of 2014/2015's best rock tunes.

While a relatively new band, the musicians within have shared the stage with many well-known acts like KISS, Black Sabbath, Motley Crüe, Papa Roach, Hinder, Buckcherry and Tantric. The members have also played a few of the biggest music festivals in the world; including Summerfest and Ichthus. Building upon their past successes, Grimsley Rose is poised to make some noise and are committed to working their way into the hearts and minds of fans across the world. One ear at a time.
