Carol Perkins: Freedom is a highway

Previous Column: Change is in the air

By Carol Perkins

I am a fan of American Idol and was pulling for Kentucky boy, Alex Miller. Now I am torn between two or three. One, whom Katy called "the underdog," that has caught my interest is Cecil Ray.

Ray isn't polished, isn't dramatic, isn't a showman, and isn't comfortable on the stage, but he is authentic. The judges teased him about getting his hand out of his pocket while he sang. During his duet with Jimmie Allen (a former Idol member), I saw a young man who could end up with a Grammy. I like him.

What captured me about their performance were the lyrics to the hit, "Freedom was a Highway" by Tracy Lawrence.
