As I was going to bed last night, this little guy greeted me when turning the covers. Can someone help ID this for me? I'm located in Kentucky, USA.

It seems like an Agelenopsis to me. According to www.spiders.us, the size, the description and the location (Kentucky) match your specimen.

Here is another image (also from www.spiders.us), for comparison:

The mentioned link lists 13 species in the Genus Agelenopsis. It shouldn't be difficult narrowing it down to species (if that's the correct Genus, of course).
