Five Finger Death Punch bassist Chris Kael has been honored by the Commonwealth of Kentucky with the title of Kentucky Colonel.
Kentucky Colonel is the highest honor awarded by the Commonwealth of Kentucky. On July 4, Kael, who lives in Las Vegas, shared a photo of a framed certificate signed by Kentucky governor Andy Beshear and secretary of state Michael Adams, and he included a message: “I am OFFICIALLY Colonel Kael now! Thanks @mikespears83 and @govandybeshear for making this happen. As a kid from Kentucky who followed his dreams until he caught them, this is an absolute honor. Looking forward to attending next year’s @thunderoverlouisville and @kentuckyderby!”.
