"Today is the BIG DAY. I'm very excited and can not wait until tonight it is going to be an amazing night with #AGT."
SurfKY News spoke to Rose's girlfriend, Heather Morgan, this morning regarding his upcoming performance.
"Jimmy definitely feels more comfortable with the song he is performing tonight," Morgan said. "He is hoping to go out and wow the crowd and judges."
According to Morgan, this small town U.S. Marine Corps veteran was inspired to audition by a previous season's winner.
"Jimmy decided to audition for the show after we had a conversation on the front porch about Kevin Skinner," Morgan said.
Skinner, who is also a Kentucky native, won the fourth season of America's Got Talent in September of 2009. Jimmy hopes his story will motivate others to follow their dreams, as well.
"Jimmy tells everyone he's just a small town guy who was raised on 'soup beans and taters'," Morgan laughed. "But singing was his ultimate dream."
America's Got Talent airs on Tuesday and Wednesday nights at 9/8 central.
