When Kevin Skinner first stepped on the America’s Got Talent stage, they couldn’t help but laugh at this ‘hillbilly’ performer. With guitar in hand, he left the judges speechless.
It takes courage to get up on stage in front of millions, but this Kentucky native gave everyone the shock of a lifetime. With his thick country accent, and stories of his chicken catching days, no one knew exactly what to expect. Even making a comment about his lack of education when asked about how many chickens he has caught.
“I’m not math…real good at math”
This introduction didn’t leave the judges confident in his professionalism or talent. But he showed everyone! When he began to sing the Garth Brooks classic, “If Tomorrow Never Comes”, they were speechless.
“If Tomorrow Never Comes” was released by Brooks in 1989 as the second single from his Garth Brooks album. The hit peaked at #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, and remains a popular song today. Being Brooks’ first love song, it has special meaning compared to others featured on the record.
Kevin went on to win the fourth season of America’s Got Talent, showing everyone that you should never judge a book by its cover.
