clay-barbie20141westernkentucky.com is owned and operated by Clay and Barbie Campbell.

Barbie does the layout, design, artwork, and does the newsletter each week.Clay, is the promotion and marketing guy. He sells the advertising and helps with ideas for content.

The publication was started in 2003 by Ray Lane of Paducah, KY, who handed over the reins to Clay and Barbie three years later. By adding Kentucky Opry subscribers to the existing subscriber base, the 1westernkentucky newsletter now has a circulation of over 7,000 readers. Since the Opry fans were interested in concerts, it seemed like a natural fit.

One main recurring question asked of people and businesses in Paducah and the Kentucky Lake area is, What’s there to do around here?

We think 1westernkentucky.com answers that question. We’ll publish any family-oriented attraction or event that sends us their information. We feature parades, BBQs, festivals, concerts, plays, rodeos, boat shows, home and garden shows, and whatever else happens to be going on.

Please contact us with questions or articles that you wish to have included. info@1westernkentucky.com
