Jonathan moves on to the finals of the Ky Opry!


Hey friends!

Well, Jonathan made it to the top four in the Junior Division this past weekend at the Ky Opry Talent Search!


He will be competing against 9 other singers in the Beginners, Adult, and Sr. Adult Divisions.

This weekend, he will sing two songs, one fast, one slow.  He’s going to be playing the guitar on his fast song and is looking forward to it.

The competition is tougher this year than last, in my opinion.  There are some really talented singers, and I LOVE listening to them sing.


Here is Jonathan’s performance of Rascal Flatts’ “Wont Let Go” from this past Saturday.





Stay tuned for the results of the finals next week!

And if you live anywhere near Paducah, come on down to Draffenville for the Ky Opry Talent Search finals this Saturday night to cheer Jonathan on.  Just be sure to call head and get your tickets…it will be a packed house.

Have a blessed day!
