A fiddlin’ Miss UK

When the winner of the Miss University of Kentucky pageant was announced earlier this month, it was a big night for the bluegrass world.

The crown went to UK senior Ramsey Carpenter, who plays fiddle with County Line Bluegrass when she isn’t studying or serving as a student athletic trainer for UK sports. With her win, Carpenter is now eligible for the Miss Kentucky pageant in 2012.

Of course, she played fiddle for her talent during the pageant.

Congratulations Ramsey – well done!

Here’s a look at her fiddling with the band.

    How out of the loop am I? I work at UK and didn’t know this news – thanks John. The crown is nice and all, but I’d have loved for Ramsey to have been crowned queen with that awesome top hat in the video.
