The lyrics of John Prine echo through our minds when we think of our next guest "Daddy won't you take me back to Muhlenberg County." For Grayson Jenkins Muhlenberg Co. is not just a place but rather a place intime, a time when life was simple in that one room church were he attended regular Sunday services with his mother and grandmother. A time when a boys dream of being the next star in a CMT music video was just firminting and the path that was laid out before him hadn't yet been realized. Jenkins' success as a singer songwriter has not fell on deaf ears here in the bluegrass state and you can catch him playing the most intimate venues in the state, to seeing him on the stage at some of Kentuckys largest festivals.
