Solid Blue super fan Stone Cold Willow gets new teeth thanks in part to the efforts of Kentucky's Terrence Jones.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Solid Blue super fan, Stone Cold Willow, smiled with a full complement of teeth for the first time in close to nine years on Tuesday, thanks in part to UK's Terrence Jones.

William Bolden, aka Stone Cold Willow, was a regular in the Erupption Zone at Kentucky basketball games this past season and has become a YouTube sensation.

A few months ago, he accompanied Jones to a Lexington Legends game and got to throw out the first pitch.

At that time, Jones and some friend revealed a plan to raise money to get Stone Cold Willow some new teeth.

The idea was to generate funds from iTune sales of a song Jones and others recorded called "Teach Me 'Bout Kentucky." It's a play on the hip-hop hit "Teach Me How To Dougie."

However, through the red tape and process of getting the song onto iTunes, they've taken a loss and came up with a new plan.

That's where Dr. Pada Chalothorn of TLC Dentistry entered the picture, along with oral surgeon, Dr. Gilman Peterson of Erena & Peterson.

They donated most of their services to help out Bolden. Jones also chipped in some of his own money to pay for lab fees.

After eight appointments, which included two teeth being pulled and 12 cavities filled, Bolden received his three new front teeth on Tuesday.

Bolden, who is now 21 years old, said he lost his teeth in a fight when he was 13.

After revealing his new smile on Tuesday, he said he felt like a newborn baby.
