|“Don’t It Make my Brown Eyes Blue” – An Evening with Richard Leigh. John Carlson opens|
Hello Live Music Fans:
Come be entertained by one of the most prolific and successful songwriters to ever come out of Nashville. We will be presenting Songwriters Hall of Fame Inductee, Richard Leigh on Saturday October 29, 2016 at The Cary Theater. John William Carlson from Holly Springs will open. Show starts at 8pm and tickets are available online at www.sixstringpresents.com.
Richard Leigh has had hits spanning 4 decades and 9 #1 records. He kicked off the 21st century with a top ten hit, “Cold Day In July”, recorded by the Dixie Chicks. In September of 2009, his good friend, Billy Dean, recorded an entire album of Leigh’s compositions called Billy Dean Sings Richard Leigh. On November 1, 2015 SESAC presented Leigh with its Songwriter Legacy Award, “for extraordinary artistic achievement with words and music”. Crystal Gayle and Reba McEntire were on hand to help present Leigh with this prestigious award.
Richard is an entertainer and his shows not only showcase his talents as a songwriter and singer. His showmanship and stage presence makes his concerts fun and entertaining as he tells the stories behind the hits and the stars who recorded them. His 9 #1’s and 14 Top 10’s have sold over 50 Million times by artists such as Crystal Gayle, Reba McEntire, Billy Dean, Martina McBride, George Jones, Alabama, Ray Charles and many more.
This is one show you will not want to miss.
