Kentuckyseven opened up the Americana barndoor back in 2005. Jonas Löfvendahl and Magnus Säfström, on the west coast of Sweden, needed to do this. We still do.

We give you American music and literature straight from the bottle. But beware. We throw curveballs and anything goes. If it´s good – it´s good.

This is our heartbeat.

One great american memory? First time in Las Vegas. Twisted.
In so many different ways and levels. The lights, the people, the smell.
Dollarbills everywhere. The sound of the thousands and thousands slotmachines.
The waitresses with too much makeup and fishnet stockings. Twisted.
