Connie Smith returns to Texas Opry Theater stage

‘Elvis: The Experience’ show coming to theater on Oct. 19

(Continued)

Along with her string of hit singles and albums, she has became a solid box office contender and appeared in a series of what are now regarded as country cult classic films. Smith appeared in “Las Vegas Hillbillies,” “Second Fiddle to a Steel Guitar,” “Hell On Wheels” and co-starred with Marty Robbins and Doodles Weaver in “The Road to Nashville.” She can be seen every week on the “Marty Stuart Show” on RFDTV.

To open the shows for Smith will be the fastest-rising entertainer in Texas, Michael Hix, with The Amazing Made In Texas Showtime Band (formerly known as the Granbury Live Band).

Elvis in the house

On Oct. 19th, The “King of Rock-n-Roll” will come to life when David Allen brings his “Elvis: The Experience” Show to the Texas Opry Theater.

“David was voted one of the top 10 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artists of the world by Elvis Presley Enterprises in Memphis during the 2011 Elvis Week,” stated Carmen Gantt, Allen’s manager.

Allen will have the Dallas-based Elvis tribute band Fever backing him up on all of Elvis’ songs. Fever has been backing Elvis and other celebrity tribute artists for more than 15 years all around the United States.

Upcoming shows

Coming up on Nov. 9 at 3 p.m., Carbon Copies Celebs presents “A Tribute To Patsy Cline and Dolly Parton,” all by Rhonda Medina, national celebrity tribute artist. Don’t be surprised if a few other well known celebrities show up, too.

The following week, on Nov. 16, “The Official Ernest Tubb Tribute Show” starring Tubb’s nephew, Glenn Douglas Tubb, and his wife, Dottie Snow Tubb, in a two-hour musical journey through the life and music of “The Biggest Country Music Star of all Time.” The show by Glenn is a fixture during “The Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree” at the Texas Troubadour Theater in Nashville, broadcast live on WSM radio. The jamboree is the second-longest running radio show in America. The Amazing Made In Texas Show Time Band will play the part of The Texas Troubadours in this show.
