T.G. Sheppard has always had a knack of being ‘at the right place at the right time’ in Country Music. He was the singular artist who put a massive amount of gold in the teeth of the country music industry’s biggest ‘sales bite’ in history—during the ‘Golden Era’ of the late ‘70’s and early ‘80’s as the success of ‘Urban Cowboy’ helped usher in a new wave of country. T.G. opened the ‘80’s with a remarkable run of a dozen #1’s hits that would forever secure his place in industry history. He brought romance—and yes, sex appeal—to country music at a time when young men in hats were first saddling up to monopolize the range on the nation’s airwaves. His hits include: “Last Cheater’s Waltz,” “Only One You,” “Party Time,” “Do You Wanna Go To Heaven,” “I Feel Like Loving You Again,” “I Loved ‘Em Every One,” “Finally,” “War Is Hell On The Homefront Too,” and “Faking Love.” “Finally” and “I Loved ‘Em Every One,” introduced T.G. to a massive new world of fans when both made major impact on the Pop Top 40 Charts.

Ronnie McDowell has an amazing string of hit songs that he has amassed over the years, but it is his riveting stage presence and genuine warmth that fills the seats again and again. Like all great entertainers, Ronnie McDowell has a personality that remains luminous long after the lights go dim. These qualities have inspired a nationwide network of fan-clubs with thousands of members, each one a devoted promoter of everything McDowell does.
Following the death of Elvis Presley in 1977, Ronnie McDowell came out of nowhere to dazzle the world with his heartfelt and self-penned tribute song “The King Is Gone” on the independent Scorpion label. The record took off immediately, gaining airplay on country and pop stations across the country and around the world. To date, “The King Is Gone” has sold more than 5 Million copies.

All of a sudden, the young Vietnam Veteran from Portland, Tennessee was a star, and he quickly proved that he wasn’t just a one-trick pony. Ronnie charted a string of hit singles and albums for Epic between 1979 and 1986. Every single release with the exception of just one became a Top 10 Hit including the chart toppers “Older Women” and “You’re Gonna Ruin My Bad Reputation.” Other hits during his Epic years included “Watchin Girls Go By,” “Personally,” “You Made A Wanted Man Of Me,” “All Tied Up,” and “In A New York Minute.” 2017 is Ronnie’s 40th Anniversary Tour.
