Country Legends LIVE

If you missed our show at the Carson Center Friday night, you missed a real treat. Country Legends Live featured tribute artists to the greats of country music: Patsy Cline, Conway Twitty, Hank Williams S and Johnny Cash.

One of my favorites, Mandy Barnett, performed the music of Patsy Cline.  Barnett was the last singer with whom legendary producer Owen Bradley worked.  When you hear her classic and powerful voice, you know why.

An ADDED treat for me and pickers in the audience, she brought along Andy Reiss from the Time Jumpers as her band leader. One of, if not the top session picker in Nashville!  My goodness, what a treat!

Michael Twitty did a great job playing his dad's songs and as an added reat, brought out Emily Portman as Loretta Lynn to sing a couple of duets!

David Church did a great Hank Williams!

And Shawn Barker closed it out as the man in black, Johnny Cash!   Great performer and cool cat, too!

Great show by all!
