The King of the Country-Western Troubadours returns to Louisville for Derby Week, with a jagged smile on his face, calluses on his fingers and unbridled venom in his guitar. Did you know this fella worked as a carnival barker at a freak show? Unknown Hinson is a man’s man, a freewheeling cowboy vampire who makes women swoon and men soil their britches. He’s helping Louisville celebrate Derby Week and promoting his latest album, Target Practice, which features songs like “Satan in a Thong” and “Alkyhol Withdrawl” — and that tells you all you need to know. Word to the wise, gentlemen: Don’t bring your wife or girlfriend, because if you do, chances are she’ll be going home with The King. Think about it. —Kevin Gibson
