Kentucky Highway Named After Kevin Skinner?

“Kentucky highway named after Kevin Skinner?” The answer to that question is yes. Recently, in Graves County Kentucky – a stretch of highway 384 was named after that county's best know resident, Kevin Skinner. Hopefully, this latest honor to make it's way to Kevin Skinner's trophy case will not be the last. Millions of country music fans from around the world fell in love with Kevin Skinner when he first appeared on the 2009 edition of America's Got Talent. Then, when Kevin Skinner was crowned the winner – all those millions of fans were very excited and most of them have been wondering what Kevin Skinner has been doing lately?

After Kevin Skinner's victory on America's Got Talent last summer, he preformed live on stage with other finalist of AGT 2009. Now as 2010 begins, I along with all other Kevin Skinner fans are hoping that soon we will hear some new music from him on the radio. A few months ago, when I was writing about how disappointed I was that Kevin Skinner did not get his own show in Las Vegas – a person emailed me and said that their understanding was that for at least the first year after America's Got Talent, the winner and other top finalist are pretty much at the control of that shows producers. If that is indeed the case, I still believe that someone in charge of America's Got Talent has dropped the ball by not putting Kevin Skinner out on national television more after he won AGT 2009 last summer.

While the powers that be at AGT may have dropped the ball by not putting Kevin Skinner out on national TV more since he won America's Got Talent - at least it's good news that the people who know Kevin the best, he friends and neighbors back in Kentucky, are not only appreciating his singing talents - but they are also honoring the attention that he is bring back home to the State of Kentucky. When Kevin Skinner won America's Got Talent, I was afraid that the Hollywood people who run that television show might not know how to promote a great country act like Kevin Skinner. Now as the weeks and months have gone by and no new music news is being released about Kevin Skinner, I fear that with enough time even some die-hard Kevin Skinner fans might forget what an impact he had on their lives when he first auditioned for America's Got Talent 2009.
