The 3 Redneck Tenors will bring their trademark blend of down-home laughs and big-city music to the stage of The Whatley Center for the Performing Arts at Northeast Texas Community College Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 7:30 pm.
Reportedly, if “Larry the Cable Guy, II Divo, and Mrs. Doubtfire had a baby, that child would be The 3 Redneck Tenors.”
These trailer park singing sensations have a great many stories to tell, taking us on one sidesplitting ride of comedy and audience interaction. Audiences spend an evening wowed by veteran singers showcased through a smorgasbord of songs ranging from Gospel and Countr to Broadway, Pop, and Classical.
“I’ve heard these guys perform numerous times and they put on an outstanding show. Not only are they hilarious, but they are truly gifted world-class vocalists,” Carolyn Franks, NTCC Director of the Whatley Center, said.
Based in Dallas, audiences have seen The 3 Redneck Tenors as top ten finalists on America’s Got Talent, on Larry the Cable Guy’s History Channel Show, Only in America,” and live in theaters across the nation.
