When the father of the man you’re paying tribute to tells you that you resemble his son, you know you must be doing something right. This occurrence is exactly what happened with Larry Turner who performs as George Strait. With many people referring to George Strait as the “King” of country music, we’re proud to have a singer who so closely resembles him. Interestingly, Larry Turner received this compliment from Strait’s father before deciding to become a professional tribute artist. Larry has since developed an incredibly impressive act as George Strait. He now regularly pleases the audience with his renditions of George’s songs, like “All My Exes Live in Texas” and “Amarillo By Morning”. Throughout his career, Larry has proved his musical worth time and time again. His talent earned him the privilege to perform for the President of the United States, the KC Royals, the NY Yankees and the Texas Rangers. Whether you are familiar with George Strait’s music or not, when you see a performance from Larry Turner, you’re bound to be impressed.
And finally, as the King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, is the man known worldwide as the TRUE Voice of Elvis, Doug Church. Doug began his career in the US Air Force, brandishing a guitar and home-made costume, where he began winning talent contests held annually by the Air Force with his amazing rendition of the King of Rock n Roll. He has awed his audiences for years, leaving them totally mesmerized and shaken. They swear that when you close your eyes, Elvis is right there in the room with you. Doug’s voice has been acknowledged as being the closest to “The King’s” by not only his fans and peers but also by those who knew Elvis personally, and is regarded as an Icon in the industry.
