A Louisville group has put a soulful twist on a Kentucky Derby classic - “My Old Kentucky Home”.

Linkin’ Bridge posted its version of the state’s official song on their Facebook page and so far the video has  gotten more than two million views. 

Group members are Montre Davis,a cook, crooner and soul-singer; Big Rome Kimbrough, the vocal powerhouse and family man; Shon China Lacy, the rhythmic, gritty tenor and restaurant manager;  and Ekoe Alexanda- the Renaissance man, musical arranger and versatile vocalist, according to its website.

Kentucky adopted the song , written by Stephen Collins Foster, in 1928,  according to the Kentucky Derby web site. However, it was originally published in 1853 and is said to have been inspired by author Harriet Beecher Stowe’s “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”.
