Maybe country western super-stars don't come from any one area more than
other areas, but you probably would have a hard time convincing the
people around Jackson, Tennessee. They have sent us Eddy Arnold, Carl
Perkins, and now-Kenny Vernon!!!!
About seven years ago I made a statement to a close friend
and singer-"Some day you'll make it all the way to the top of the music
scene." It could have been just a hopeful statement and nothing more,
except that it was made about a singer and an entertainer who has never
been discouraged despite all the hard work and grinding one-night stands
in all size bars and night clubs with seating capacity ranging from nill
to thousands. Kenny Vernon is the talent that it has finally started
happening for-and-happening in a big way!
With his treatment of any song, whether his own or someone
else's, there is no mistaking the Kenny Vernon talent, hard work, and
experience. Kenny is here to stay! If you are not already familiar with
his style when you pick up on this album, you'll surely be another Kenny
Vernon fan from now on.
A few hit records does not, as we all know, make a star that
shines with enduring brilliance-except when you are talking about a
singer like Kenny Vernon. And, I might add, it couldn't have happened to
a nicer, more deserving person-a guy who never became discouraged!
