Featuring Paul Horton. From their beginnings in mid-Sixties Ohio as a group of friends playing cover
tunes to the present-day unit featuring founding member/pedal-steel
innovator John David Call, veteran bassist Mike Reilly, propulsive drummer
Scott Thompson and guitar ace Donnie Clark, PURE PRAIRIE LEAGUE
continues to embellish the rich 43-year history of one of Country-Rock’s
pioneering forces. As one reviewer recently wrote: “PPL’s sound combines
sweet memories with edgy, contemporary muscle. Their vocals are as strong
as Kentucky moonshine and the musicianship and performance skills are as
sharp as a straight razor”.
Their eponymous first album – featuring the Norman Rockwell/Saturday
Evening Post cover that introduced fans to PPL’s trademark cowpoke “Sad
Luke” – has been hailed as a “major early influence in the emerging

popularity of Country-Rock music”. Their second effort, the multi-
platinum “Bustin’ Out” brought us the Craig Fuller-penned classic “Amie”,

along with other gems of the genre. With “Two Lane Highway”, nine more
albums and countless shows, a legacy has been forged and enriched
during the
‘70s and 80’s, highlighting contributions from several noteworthy members,
including original co-founder George Ed Powell, Cincinnati’s legendary
Goshorn Brothers, Country Hall of Famers Gary Burr and Vince Gill,
award-winning writer Jeff Wilson (3 Top-20 singles) and a host of other guest
appearances from Chet Atkins, Johnny Gimble, Emmy Lou Harris, David
Sanborn, Eagle Don Felder, Nicolette Larson, and many more.
Now in their fifth decade, Pure Prairie League continues to lead the way for
the new generation of Country/Rockers such as Keith Urban, Nickel
Creek, Wilco, Counting Crows and so many others that cite PPL as a major
influence.
As crisp and clean as spring water and as comfortable as a well-worn cowboy
shirt, Pure Prairie League still brings it all back home.
