Do you remember Elvis? Roy Orbison? Patsy Cline? Did you ever see them in concert? Well, now you can!

The show will be a magical evening of entertainment where audiences will truly believe they are really at a concert featuring these bygone superstars. The talented singers and musicians of the Louisiana Hayride show recreate iconic performances, and attendees will see and hear Elvis sing That’s Alright Mama—the song he first sang on Louisiana Hayride when he was 19-years-old.

And Elvis doesn’t stop there, as he’ll sure to sing a few other huge hits. Roy Orbison hits the stage with Crying and Pretty Woman, and every country-lovers favorite, Patsy Cline, will also swing across the stage crooning her hits.

And classic country doesn’t get any more pure than Lefty Frizzell, whose music audiences will also be treated to.

In addition to these incredible tributes, you’ll hear songs by Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Roger Miller, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Buck Owens and more.

Many of these iconic artists have had a great influence on current singers and to add even more variety to the show, Shania Twain makes an appearance to make a connection between ‘old’ and ‘new’ country music.

It’s sure to be an evening of stellar musicianship and extraordinary vocals presented in a completely unique and entertaining way.
