When it comes to exports, Kentucky exceeds expectations with bourbon, horses, and basketball. However, our greatest export is the finest music from all over our state. Kentucky is home to some great live venues to showcase our talent. One of those venues is Sheperdsville Country Music Theatre located at 1833 HWY 44 West in Shepherdsville, Kentucky. On Friday, May 17, 2019, the venue will be hosting The Music Trifecta. The show will feature John Schneider, better known as Bo Duke on the Dukes of Hazzard tv show. Also on hand will be legendary bluegrass musician Gary Brewer and the Kentucky Ramblers, as well as 2-time Dove Award winner, Christian Davis.
Many folks know John Schneider from his acting career with the Dukes of Hazzard television show, as well as several movies and tv specials. Most recently, he danced to the beat with “Dancing with the Stars” tv show. However, a lot do not realize that he has had a music career since the 1980s. He’s had multiple number one hit songs, including “What’s a Memory Like You (Doing in a Love Like This),” “Country Girls,” and “I’ve Been Around Enough to Know.” He also had the highest charting Elvis cover with “It’s Now or Never.” Most recently, he recorded music for his album, “The Odyssey” as well as a Greatest Hits album and a Christmas album. Interestingly enough, he did this all as an independent artist.
The host band, Gary Brewer and the Kentucky Ramblers, hosts nearly 50 live music events in KY. Their sole purpose is to keep live music in their hometown; bringing such shows as this Music Trifecta at very reasonable pricing for an unforgettable experience. In 2020, Gary Brewer will be celebrating 40 years in the business. He has toured internationally and was recently given 2 Grammy Award nominations for their “Vintage Country Revival” album.
Finally, to round out the Trifecta is Christian Davis. Two-time Dove Award winner and three-time Grammy Nominee, Christian Davis has been featured on projects by Dolly Parton, Dailey & Vincent, Connie Smith and others. Christian has performed on the Grand Ole Opry, Carnegie Hall, The Lincoln Center and many other prominent Shows and Festivals with such artists as Marty Stuart, Vince Gill, Rhonda Vincent, Connie Smith, T Graham Brown, Jimmy Fortune, Marty Raybon, Trace Adkins and many more.
