Inspiration For The Kentucky Derby
As you know COVID-19 has ruined many things in 2020 including a huge event in Kentucky that happens every single year no matter what, rain or shine, or so we thought until COVID proved us wrong.
As Kentuckians we joke with each other when someone asks "oh you live in Kentucky, you must love going to the Derby?" Typically we reply "well we live in Kentucky, we can't afford it"! Haha! Although I personally love the Derby and the event itself and have even attended in person many Kentuckians would rather watch from afar and celebrate in the comfort of their home anyways.
The Kentucky Derby event was postponed to this coming weekend so to get into the spirit of celebrating all of the athletes and horses I wanted to showcase an artist with you all that may spark your happy and get you in the mood! The Derby is looking VERY different this year with COVID limiting the number of guests coming into town and now certain people are even complaining about "My Old Kentucky Home" being played before the race begins as it may offend some for what ever reason... it's crazy!
