Online Program: Live at the Hall: Nashville Cats: Kenny Lovelace
1 Hr 15 Min
In this program, Kenny Lovelace performs and discusses his career with the Museum’s Michael Gray. For more than fifty years, Lovelace has served as guitarist, fiddler, bandleader, and right-hand man for Jerry Lee Lewis. He has toured the world with “the Killer,” and when the rock & roll legend decided to make country records, Lovelace added fiddle to superb Nashville recordings such as “Another Place, Another Time,” “What’s Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made a Loser Out of Me),” “She Still Comes Around (to Love What’s Left of Me),” “She Even Woke Me Up to Say Goodbye,” and “Thirty Nine and Holding.” Lovelace was born in 1936 in Cloverdale, near Muscle Shoals, Alabama. He has performed with Chuck Berry, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, the Rolling Stones, and other legends, and he played fiddle on the Oak Ridge Boys’ 1983 hit “Ozark Mountain Jubilee.” Lovelace is friends with the history-minded Marty Stuart and has joined him for television appearances, in concert, and in the recording studio. This interview will include archival photos, audio, and film clips.
Stream on-demand on the Museum’s YouTube channel, Facebook page, and website starting with the premiere on Tuesday, August 30, at 7:00 p.m. central.
