Welcome to this week's The411.  Platinum selling soul singer, and songwriter Lyfe Jennings makes a trip to Louisville and sits down for a one on one to talk about his upcoming CD and to give advice to aspiring artists.    
(Jennings) If a person really wants to do this they have to treat it like a job.  To work a job for eight hours a day, then you have to work at least eight work hours or more everyday.   
This is Lyfe’s fourth album and his collaboration is extensive.   
(Jennings) The CD is called “I Still Believe”.  It comes out June 29th, you’ll hear like Ludacris, Fabulous, Bobby Valentino and Anthony Hamilton.      
With the entertainment industry always changing how do you stay focused?  
(Jennings) Wha I would say get your purpose right first because your purpose is going to keep you humble when success comes.  Keep moving and find your break.  You know why you’re doing it and you know who you’re doing it for.   

Even though the state fair is still months away the fair board announced the Rascal Flatts will be apart of the lineup and tickets will go on sale April 19th. The Rascal Flatts American Living Unstoppable Tour will feature Kellie Pickler and Chris Young in concert on August 29th.  The Kentucky State Fair run from August 19th through the 29th.    

Don’t forget Tyler Perry is in town for Madea’s Big Happy Family Tour and for more on Lyfe Jennings go to That wraps up another segment of The411.  If you have an event send it to I'm Sherlene Shanklin with WHAS11 News.
