Johnny Hiland in Concert with Special Guest Eddie Heinzelman
Merle Travis Music Center, 750 Cleaton Rd., Powderley, KY 42367
THIS CONCERT HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL THE TRAVIS CENTER FALL SEASON
Johnny Hiland is recognized as one of the greatest guitarists on the planet. He has performed both as a solo artist as well as with some of the biggest names in the business. Johnny was recently recognized by Guitar World magazine as "One of the 50 Fastest Guitarists of All Time" and by gibson.com as one of the five greatest chicken pickers in the world. A recent Vintage Guitar magazine readers poll named him one of the Top 5 favorite country guitarists along with Albert Lee, Vince Gill, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban. Not bad company. His albums have been well-received and his single "Call Me The Breeze," from his latest album "Standing Strong," has been lauded by the guitar press as even better than the Lynyrd Skynyrd and writer J.J. Cale originals and was publicly praised by the J.J. Cale estate. His first foray into the gospel world with his soon-to-be-released "Pickin' For The Lord" is being called a masterpiece. Johnny and his band will take you on a musical journey through many guitar styles ranging from blues, rock, country and more!
Opener Eddie Heinzelman had been the bandleader, guitarist and musical backbone of many a country star, most recently Radney Foster. His most recent album, "Wherever You Go" is getting great notices from the music press.
