Guitar Army Featuring John Jorgenson, Lee Roy Parnell, & Joe Robinson presented by WMOT/Roots Radio
Guitar Army featuring John Jorgenson, Lee Roy Parnell, Joe Robinson live at City Winery Nashville on 5/12/18 brings together three powerhouse, world-class musicians, guitarists, singers and songwriters with an incredible rhythm section. This is a full-on, captivating display of guitar prowess — at times potent and powerful, and at others, tasteful and graceful. It’s a magical combination of virtuosos rarely seen on one stage in one band.
John Jorgenson is a GRAMMY® Award winner known as one of the world's most talented guitarists and multi-instrumentalists who co-founded landmark groups The Desert Rose Band and the Hellecasters, played guitar in Elton John's band for many years and has collaborated with the likes of Sting, Billy Joel, Roy Orbison, Emmylou Harris, and Bob Dylan.
Lee Roy Parnell, a multiple GRAMMY® Award nominee, soulful vocalist and No. 1 hit-maker, is widely recognized as one of the best slide guitar players on the planet. Parnell is also a Texas Heritage Songwriter’s Hall of Fame member (alongside fellow honorees such as Kris Kristofferson, JD Souther, Rodney Crowell, Guy Clark, and Willie Nelson) and has toured/collaborated with many legends including The Allman Brothers Band, Delbert McClinton, and Bonnie Raitt.
Australian prodigy Joe Robinson started playing shows with acoustic virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel at the age of 11, took the top spot in the Australian National Songwriting Competition at 13 years old, and won Australia’s Got Talent just after turning 17-years-old. He’s toured the world on his own, with Emmanuel, Rodney Crowell, and others while earning “Best New Talent” accolades in the Guitar Player Magazine Readers’ Poll and a spot on Guitar Player’s “Youthquake 2017: Ten Mind-Blowing Young Guitarists” list.
"From the first time we played together, it was clear that it was something special," Robinson has said of Guitar Army. "We knew it would do well on the road."
