Kris Allen and American Idol Are Coming To Conway!
Following is a guest post from my husband, Paul Eilers, from

It's official.

Kris Allen has advanced to the final three, and American Idol will be coming to Conway, Arkansas.

All over town, there are signs saying, "Kris Allen is Kick Awesome!" You see them on banks, restaurants and even on cars. The slogan comes from an interview with Kris, where he was asked to describe his experience on the show. He replied that he wants to live life with no regrets and his experience has been kick awesome. So now the phrase "Kick Awesome" has become the Kris Allen battle cry around town.

Kris' wife, Katy, works at Acxiom Corporation, the same place my wife works. Every week they get emails saying, "Be sure and vote for Kris Allen!"

There's even a rumor where our 16-year-old son goes to school. Because Kris Allen is in the 'Top 3', the kids will get out early this upcoming Friday, so they can attend a Kris Allen homecoming parade and concert in downtown Conway. Of course, along with all the hoopla, American Idol will be there to film it all.

Exciting times in good ole' Conway!

Until next time,

Eat Well. Live Well.

Ruthie - Kris Allen is one of my favorites too! The talent is so good at this level so I know it's going to take a lot of voting and a lot of luck for him to continue to advance.

Sandee - Thanks!

Paul - I was so thankful the rain held off for Kris' parade and concert.
