  • LaRue Co. native singing in Pigeon Forge theatre

    Singing comes naturally to Betsy Kay Perkins.

    After all, her mother, Phyllis Ann Perkins, her father, Doyt Perkins, and her grandfather, Clyde Benningfield, all sang in gospel quartets and instilled in her that love of singing. She has sung in gospel groups, has performed at Dollywood and several stage shows throughout Kentucky.

    Her newest singing engagement, at Biblical Times Dinner Theater in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, came as an indirect result of her pursuit of gospel singing.
