Tasha Harris’ last call at Renfro Valley

She played there for 14 years, but this time was her last.

Tasha Harris said she didn’t know what she wanted to do after her last performance at Renfro Valley Entertainment Center on Aug. 2. She may start a band or tryout for Nashville Star or maybe this was it. She doesn’t know where to start, but she does know the performance brought back all of the emotions she loves about singing.

Judge Thomas Jones has given her an opportunity she may have taken for granted so many times before: one last chance to sing at Renfro Valley.

On Tuesday, July 22, you may have seen a few dozen kids running around with green t-shirts on. They may have tried to sell you a newspaper, or asked for directions to a building on UK’s campus. It wasn’t just a game, but a race. A version of the “Great American Race” took place in Lexington, and 45 middle schoolers were competing to win a pizza party. Video by Brad Luttrell | Staff
