Utahns will best know Kenny Holland from his lead role in the April release of the full-length feature film, “Saturday’s Warrior.” In the movie, Kenny played a singer, Jimmy Flinders, who was deciding between his growing career and family values — which isn’t too far from the pop artist’s life, at least the part about him traveling to perform.
