The Kentucky Gentlemen have been working tirelessly to share their music in Nashville. They call it the ten-year town and, after ten years of writing hundreds of songs and shaking hands at hundreds of events, the Gentlemen’s ship has come in thanks to their work with the Black Opry. The twin brothers (Brandon and Derek Campbell) released their latest single, “Neon Cowboy,” a few weeks ago. They were kind enough to take some time out of their very, very busy schedule to discuss their connection to Black Cowboy culture and how they are creating time and space to nurture their individuality.
