In 1986, Greg introduced Richard and Fred to Doug Phelps.
Doug Phelps was asked to join in Anthony's place.
For me, it was magic from day one," said Doug Phelps.
Doug had a brother who also loved music.
I suggested he should ride up to Kentucky with me and jam with our band, the HeadHunters, for kicks," says Doug.
"You know, Doug and Ricky had never really had a chance to sing together in a band.
We recorded eight tracks and called it "Pickin' On Nashville," Doug remembers.

On June 2, 1992, Doug and Ricky Phelps left to start a duo career.
Let's change the name and start all over!' Now the HeadHunters have big balls, but I don't think anyone (including Doug) wanted to risk losing the HeadHunters brand," says Richard.
In the end, it was Doug who came back. He has and always will be our friend, band mate, and a team player.
A lot of folks come up and say, 'Oh, I like this song or I like that song.' That's proof that if you put a great song on a record when the times and the way people are thinking are off, it will go right over their heads," said Doug.

Doug Phelps - Bass Guitarist and Lead Vocalist for The Kentucky HeadHunters
He actually started playing bass on his dad's 67 Fender Red Mustang Guitar in church, but his Uncle Dub Phelps gave him his first real bass at the age of 10. It was a 1966 Fender Jazz that he still plays to this day!
When the HeadHunters formed in March of 1986, Doug had just purchased a 1958 Fender Precision Bass from a good friend at Sumner County Music Store in Gallatin, TN. That's the bass he used on the first two Kentucky HeadHunter cd's, the multiple platinum, multiple award winning "Pickin' On Nashville" and the near platinum "Electric Barnyard". Doug still owns his '58 "P" as well, but has since put it up for safe keeping.
Doug left the HeadHunters in July of '92 with his brother, Ricky Lee, and formed the brother duo of Brother Phelps, but rejoined The HeadHunters in the latter portion of '95. And when his brother decided not to rejoin, Doug took over the lead vocal duties, which he still enjoys to this day.
