cop-side-kentuckyWhile Kentucky Derby Day at Churchill Downs in Louisville puts the Bluegrass State on the map each May, on a day-to-day basis the state might be best-known for its famed Kentucky Fried Chicken, which originated at Harlan Sanders’ service station in North Corbin in the 1940s. Yet Kentucky is known for a variety of additional claims — from bourbon distilleries to automobile manufacturing and from tobacco to bluegrass music.

Wildcats and Cardinals don’t mix.
