By Kristin Martin | 

EDMONSON COUNTY, Ky. (WBKO) -- A man from here in the WBKO viewing area will be competing live on the new reality series "Rising Star" this weekend.

25-year-old Rye Davis is from Pig, Kentucky.

He was also a baseball player for Western Kentucky University before discovering his passion for singing.

He said getting on the show has been a fun process, and he's hoping to make it through this next round.

"You have to be confident in your ability to be at this level, but it's up to America and hopefully with Kentucky's help they'll help me raise it (the wall). It's really not up to anybody except for me and what America thinks of me, but I expect to raise the wall or I wouldn't be here, you know, this is a great opportunity and a real blessing and everyone tune in and take a listen and let me know what you think," Davis said.

His family is taking a road trip to Los Angeles to watch him perform.

If you would like to watch and vote for Davis, you can do so by tuning into WBKO ABC at 8:00 p.m. this Sunday.
