A Book and it's Cover



Are you watching the new show "The Voice?" We tuned in Sunday night after the Super Bowl, along with about a million and half other people. Time slots are pretty important in TV Land and the show's executives knew that scheduling season 2's premiere right after the Super Bowl would assure a good audience. We look forward to American Idol each season, The Voice gives a little more background about each contestant than Idol. They tell how they have arrived at this dream of singing, what they do in real life and then they perform. Without the background, you'd be tempted to "write them off," they don't look the part. Entertainers have to look the part, or do they?

Kevin Taylor, who won America's Got Talent competition a few years ago didn't impress the judges with his appearance as he strolled onto the stage, his ball cap backwards just like his Southern drawl. The audience and judges laughed as he explained he was a chicken catcher back home in Kentucky. "How many can you catch," they asked as they snickered? Kevin answered politely that 6  guys catch 60,000 a night, 8 at a time. The audience roared, no one believed him. It seemed impossible... almost as impossible as him winning the competition in 2009.

Kevin's star is rising still, he's touring and has written a new CD called "Long Ride." Look for him, he may not look the part but that's just because we haven't opened the book... we're just looking at the cover!

  1. I love the Voice. I call it American Idol's prettier little sister. I remember Kevin. Remember how they acted when Susan Boyle first appeared. She showed them!

  2. I remember Kevin and have wondered how things are going for him. I'm glad to hear he has a new CD. He certainly has a great voice.

    1. He was on an Arkansas radio show the other day and his voice is so good. They said after he performed Garth Brooks song "If Tomorrow Never Comes" that Garth called him and said if Kevin had been around first, Garth wouldn't have made it!

  4. Love his voice and seeing him when the judges were talking and after, when he was talking and crying, made me tear up.

    1. It affected me that way too. How mean of the audience to laugh and roll their eyes at his job. We are a Tyson family, and chicken catching is not an easy job. It's the only way that it can be done, and yes they do catch that many. He's got a singing career going now and also does Roger Raglin's Outdoor Channel hunting show. Sounds like he's living out his dream!
