Nashville, TN ... April, 2008
Nashville, TN .... Reported my Roger Daley
It looks as though Branson, Mo. is in the works for Ronnie Lee Twist who is negotiating
with investors to stage the new show written by Ronnie Lee Twist called "Memphis to
Nashville". The show centers around some of the rockabilly greats of the 50's when it was
all taking hold. Some of the artists include: Johny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Wanda
Jackson, Gene Vincent, Elvis, and Carl Perkins. The show take you from old rock and
leaves you with a bit of country music that was influenced by the early sounds. Ronnie
has been working on this in conjunction with a new studio project called Memphis to
Nashville. The Title song has not yet been written, but is being worked on.
We are proud the announce that the Rockabilly Hall of Fame, in Burns, TN. has endorsed the
show, and will be a part of the promotion and merchandising. RHOF merchandise will be
available at the show, with information about the hall of fame and how to become a
supporting member. Ronnie Lee has had ties to the Hall for several years, and says he
can't think of any better union than with Bob Timmers and the Rockabilly Hall of Fame.
More on the show to come soon. It has been quite a hectic couple of months and Ronnie
and Nikki are trying to arrange for the possible move to Branson. Ronnie said, "I am also
proud to say that my lead guitar player, Brad Orcutt will also be joining us for the move
to Branson, and that his wife, Kelly will be part of the show as well ... We have a lot of
irons in the fire, and will pass along info as soon as we get it in ..."
