ARE you ready for a heavy dose of the best coun­try mu­sic artists to have ever lived?

Well the Proser­pine RSL is about to host a very spe­cial trib­ute show.

Di­rect from the United States and af­ter sell-out shows in North Amer­ica, the Kings of Coun­try is an un­for­get­table trib­ute to the big­gest names in coun­try mu­sic this cen­tury.

Fea­tur­ing the mu­sic of Johnny Cash, Willy Nel­son and John Den­ver, this is a show not to be missed, with the artists sure to leave au­di­ences spell­bound with their un­canny re­sem­blance and voices.

All your favourite coun­try songs will be in one show,

with hits in­clud­ing Cash’s Ring of Fire, A Boy Named Sue, Fol­som City Blues, Nel­son’s Mam­mas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up To Be Cow­boys, On the Road Again, Seven Span­ish An­gels and Den­ver’s Take Me Home Coun­try Road, Thank God I’m a Coun­try Boy, Sun­shine On My Shoul­ders.

The Kings of Coun­try are Amer­ica’s great­est trib­ute to three of coun­try mu­sic’s great­est artists.

Phillip Bauer is Johnny Cash and has been recre­at­ing his sound and the look since 1985 and with his nat­u­ral re­sem­blance and his stage pres­ence, it’s sure to leave au­di­ences spell­bound as he recre­ates the era of Jack­son, Fol­som Prison Blues and all the songs that made Johnny Cash the King of Coun­try mu­sic.

Michael Moore is the out­law Wil­lie Nel­son and has been called the world’s lead­ing Wil­lie trib­ute artist and, as well as work­ing with the Kings of Coun­try, he also does his own show ex­ten­sively in the United States.

Ted Vigil is John Den­ver and has just been awarded the Ris­ing Leg­end Award by the Amer­i­can Coun­try Mu­sic As­so­ci­a­tion. John tours the United States reg­u­larly with his own show.

Af­ter be­ing forced to change venue due to cy­clone dam­age, the Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre will still han­dle ticket sales. There will also be a bar and some food avail­able on the night.

“We’ll do the best with what we’ve got,” Proser­pine En­ter­tain­ment Cen­tre man­ager Chris Pa­trick said.

“We’ll work with peo­ple to sell tick­ets over the phone or tell them where they can pay.”

To­gether the trio, with their own bands, make the Kings of Coun­try a must see show.

It’s coun­try mu­sic at it’s finest.

Di­rect from the United States and af­ter sell-out shows in North Amer­ica, the Kings of Coun­try is an un­for­get­table trib­ute to the big­gest names in coun­try mu­sic this cen­tury.
