Johnny, Willie and Kenny are arguably the biggest names in the country music scene, and with a plethora of hits between them, this makes for a must-see show.
Johnny Cash has been called one of the most influential artists of all time, and his passing in 2003 left a noticeable gap in the music industry. Throughout his career, he sold over 90 million records, something few artists have been able to match. As a multi-Grammy award winner, the Man in Black as Johnny was known, had a plethora of hits from signature tunes ‘I Walk The Line’, ‘Ring of Fire’ and ‘Get Rhythm’ to tracks such as ‘One Piece at a Time’, ‘A Boy Named Sue’ and ‘Hey Porter’.
Phillip Bauer has been recreating Johnny Cash’s sound and the look since 1985, his uncanny natural resemblance and stage presence leaving audiences spellbound. He traverses through the legendary Johnny Cash catalogue, Folsom Prison Blues to Ring of Fire, and presents them with the same intensity as the ‘man in black’.
Willie Nelson is an icon of the American country music scene, and is not only a musician, but also a well reputed actor. Classified as the country music outlaw whose formidable presence changed the way of the industry forever! Also a Grammy award winner, Willie is most well known for songs such as ‘Midnight Rider’, ‘On the Road Again’, ‘To All The Girls I’ve Loved Before’ and his hit single ‘Bloody Mary Morning’ and ‘Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain’.
Marion Deaton as Willie Nelson is a road savvy musician with a 30-year track record as a drummer, bandleader, and singer. Over the years he has appeared with hundreds of music greats including Neil Sedaka, Roy Orbison, Gene Pitney, and Percy Sledge. Marion recreates Willie Nelson's greatest hits spanning four decades of musical rebellion and excellence leaving audiences of all ages delighted.
Kenny Rogers is not only a country musician, but has also topped the pop music charts too. He has also won a plethora of awards for music, including a lifetime achievement award that celebrated his career spanning six decades. His album ‘The Gambler’ has been dubbed as one of the most influential albums ever, and the title track is one of his most well-known songs. Other hits across his career include ‘Lucille’, ‘Coward of the Country’, and ‘Laura (What’s He Got That I Aint’ Got)’.
