Sammy Kershaw was honored by his hometown of Kaplan, La., on May 6.
Not only did Mayor Michael Kloesel proclaimed it Sammy Kershaw Day, but he also changed the name of 2nd Street to Sammy Kershaw Drive.
“It’s just a total surprise,” Sammy says. “I never expected it, but to me it’s got to be one of the biggest honors your hometown can do for you. For your hometown to do something like that for you, it doesn’t happen too often.”
The “She Don’t Know She’s Beautiful” singer is currently on the road with Aaron Tippin and Collin Raye on the trio’s Roots & Boots Tour.
