Kenneth Trebbe (born September 21, 1952, Topeka, Kansas) is an American country singer, known professionally as Kenny Starr. He recorded for MCA Records between 1973 and 1978, charting thirteen singles and releasing one studio album. For much of the 1970s, he was a member of Loretta Lynn's touring band, the Coal Miners. Lynn is frequently credited with discovering him.

Starr's biggest hit was a cover of David Geddes's single "The Blind Man in the Bleachers". Starr's version was a hit single in the U.S. in 1976, reaching No. 2 on the Country Singles chart and No. 58 on the Billboard Hot 100 and went to No. 1 on the country charts in Canada. The album from which it was taken, also called The Blind Man in the Bleachers, reached No. 12 on the Billboard Country Albums chart.[2]
