Like so many Americans, Jimmy Rose grew up in a small town where going to the coal mine after high school was the norm. After spending sometime underground after graduating , Jimmy decided to join the Marines and serve his country. 

After returning home in one piece, Jimmy counted his blessings and decided to finally chase his dream of being a country music singer on the stage of America’s Got Talent

The homegrown Kentucky boy sang his own original song Coal Keeps The Lights On that touched the hearts of the entire auditorium, prompting even the judges to rise to their feet in applause.
