Ted Nugent has carved a permanent place in rock and roll history as the ultimate guitar-shredding showman, selling more than 40 million albums, performing over 6,500 high-octane live shows, and continuing to set attendance records at venues around the globe.

His no-hold-barred career spans five decades of multi-platinum hits, including “Journey to the Center of the Mind,” “Strangehold,” and “Cat Scratch Fever.” Ted and his inimitable sound are the Ultimate Life Soundtrack for millions of passionate music lovers everywhere.

Nugent has been known to include ‘hateful,’ political-driven rhetoric in his concerts, but a June article published by the Huffington Post says that he is aiming to dial it back.

Nugent is quoted saying “I have re-evaluated my approach… At the tender age of 69, my wife has convinced me that I just can’t use those harsh terms. I cannot, and I will not… And I encourage even my friends/enemies on the left in the Democrat liberal world that we have got to be civil to each other, that the whole world is watching America, where you have the God-given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and we have got to be more respectful to the other side.”

Richard and Fred Young, along with cousins Anthony Kenney and Greg Martin, formed the Kentucky Headhunters (formerly the Itchy Brother) near Edmonton, Ky. in 1968. After a few years together waiting for the time to be right, the band began hanging out in Nashville where they performed on the TV show Young Country, earning them quite a bit of notice.

A little over a decade later, the band signed with Acuff/Rose Publishing Company, then later with Mercury, under whom they released their first album “Pickin’ On Nashville.” The band says the album “blew up like an atom bomb and changed our lives forever. The rest is history.” Since then, they’ve released albums “Electric Barnyard,” “Rave On,” and “That’ll Work.”

In 2010, the band formed their own record label Practice House Records and recorded “Dixie Lullabies,” released the following year. The band is currently working on two new album projects and is looking forward to releasing them to their fans.
