Event Details

Born in the heart of Kentucky, Ernie “Sticktight” Akins has had an infatuation for music since he started walking. The name Sticktight came from Country Music Superstar, John Michael Montgomery. When visiting John at his farm, a two year old Ernie Akins was exploring in the woods and emerged covered in sticktights. John found it humorous and said, “Boy, we’re going to have to start calling you, ‘Sticktight’”. Since then, “Sticktight” has stuck!

‚ÄčSticktight grew up listening to radio and chart topping icons such as Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Dwight Yoakam, Charlie Daniels, Montgomery Gentry, and well as legendary Blues, Classic & Southern Rock Bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, George Thorogood, Stevie Ray Vaughn, etc. When performing, you can hear these influences blended into one giving Sticktight a sound of his own.
