The Tennessee Theatre has announced two new artists coming soon: songwriting icon John Prine (Friday, Nov. 9) and stand-up standout Ron White (Saturday, Jan. 5).
Tickets for both shows will go on sale Friday (Sept. 28).
The Tennessee Theatre website says of Prine:
"Some four decades since his remarkable debut, John Prine has stayed at the top of his game, both as a performer and songwriter. Recently honored at the Library of Congress by US Poet Laureate Ted Kooser, he’s been elevated from the annals of songwriters into the realm of bonafide American treasures. Long considered a “songwriter’s songwriter,” John Prine is a rare talent who writes the songs other songwriters would sell their souls for. Evidence of this is the long list of songwriters who have recorded gems from his extensive catalog, including Johnny Cash, Bonnie Raitt, the Everly Brothers, John Denver, Kris Kristofferson, Carly Simon, Ben Harper, Joan Baez, and many others."
Tickets for John Prine are $49 and $59, plus service charges.
On White, the website says:
"Comedian Ron "Tater Salad" White is best known as the cigar smoking, scotch drinking funnyman from the "Blue Collar Comedy Tour" phenomenon. But with the Grammy nominations, a Gold Record, two of the top rated one-hour specials in Comedy Central history, a book that appeared on the New York Times Best Seller List and CD and DVD sales over 10 million units, Ron has established himself as a star in his own right. Ron has always been a storyteller, from the time he was a boy growing up in a small town in the middle of Texas oil country to selling windows for a living in Arlington to performing in sold-out theatres and arenas as a headlining comedian all across the country. He's known for his insightful and hilarious comedy shticks, which manage to be both razor-sharp and blunt."
Tickets for Ron White (mature audiences only) are $48 and $58, plus service charges. Also available: The Ron White "200 Proof" VIP Experience. The package includes: Seat Ticket in First 5 Rows, Q & A session with Ron White, photo with Ron White, VIP access pass personally signed by Ron White and 1 Month Free Ron White Fan Club Membership.
Tickets for both shows can be purchased at all Tickets Unlimited outlets, by phone at 865-656-4444 or online at www.tennesseetheatre.com.
