Kenny Price Lyrics


Six-foot tall, 300-pound Kenny "The Round Mound of Sound"

Reviews about Kenny Price songs

History behind the song - Sheriff of Boone County | Reviewer: Karen Collins Barstow
    ------ About the song Sheriff Of Boone County performed by Kenny Price

Kenny Price lived in Florence Kentucky. At a football game was Mike and Melvin Collins (twins) and Kenny Price's son were playing, Kenny came up to the current Sheriff of Boone County, Melvin Collins, and informed him that he was writing a song about him. Melvin Collins laughed and did not think anything more about what Kenny Price had said.
About 6 months later the song was released. Melvin Collins and Kenny Price stood in front of Rinks Department Stores in Florence while Kenny signed autographs and shoppers bought up the records. Kenny Price sang the song on the television show Mid-Western Hayride in Cincinnati while Melvin Collins and his son's watch. Even when Melvin Collins attended conferences, in one paper the title was "The Sheriff of Boone County Comes to Town." Melvin Collins got a big kick out of having a song written about him. He did not run the grocery store, pump gas nor was the dog-catcher.

Being Melvin Collins's youngest daughter, I still have fond memories when I hear the song Sheriff of Boone County.
