I always love hearing good news about good folks here in Kentucky. Bobby Mackey recently had a stretch of highway named after him. Now that is pretty cool because not that many country music singers can say they have a highway named after them.

Back in November, I got to visit Bobby Mackey’s Music World, also known as the haunted honky tonk. It has been featured on quite a few television shows over the years. I’ve taken the tour myself. Read more about that experience here.
On May 17th, Bobby Mackey’s will be having a Northern Kentucky Music Legends Benefit. It will support the Fort Thomas Museum Exhibit. The benefit starts at 8:00 pm with Bobby Mackey and the Big Mac Band taking the stage at 10:00 pm. Be sure to check out more information at www.bobbymackeys.com. Support your local music scene.
