It’s Always Sunny
Sunny Ledfurd is North Carolina’s answer to Kid Rock, with a
little bit of Axl Rose thrown into the mix for good measure.
A wild child who started his own hip-hop group as a teenager, Ledfurd has evolved into a full-fledged country-rock phenomenon, with a cagey storytelling style all his own.
Ledfurd will perform at Canyons of the Blue Ridge in Blowing Rock, starting at 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21. Tickets are $10 per person and are on sale now.
“If there has ever been a way to describe Sunny Ledfurd, it has got to be his ability to defy categorization,” his publicist said. “Born in Chattanooga, Tenn., and growing up in Gaston County, N.C., he taught himself guitar at age 15. He knew then that playing the guitar was how he would make a living.
“Inspired by Guns ‘n’ Roses, Snoop Dog and David Allan Coe, among many, Sunny’s songs continually mix genres and push the envelope.”
“I’ve always liked artists that you can tell they have something to say,” Ledfurd said. “They’re not just singing some words ’cause it sounds cool.”
Ledfurd’s songs paint a picture of a wild life, full of drinking and tattooed women. With titles, like “I Don’t Remember Last Night,” “Pontoon Boat,” Adderral” and “Myrtle Beach,” Ledfurd celebrates Southern life as he sees and lives it.
