Over 100 million viewers tuned in to NBC’s America’s Got Talent in 2009 to see The Texas Tenors become the highest-rated group in the history of the show. John Hagen, Marcus Collins and J.C. Fisher will bring their unique blend of Country, Gospel, Classical and Broadway to ASU-Newport in a Saturday night performance presented by Arkansas Steel Associates set to begin at 7:00 p.m.

With breathtaking vocals, humor and cowboy charm, The Texas Tenors have traveled the globe, performing more than 500 concerts in the last four years. The Tenors have performed in more than 20 countries, including a 24-show tour of Great Britain and their current tour of China. They annually perform over 60 concerts each fall at Branson’s Starlite Theatre, where they were named Ensemble of the Year in 2011 and 2012, in addition to their Critic’s Choice Group of the Year awards. Their debut album, Country Roots – Classic Sound has the distinction of being the only independent album to reach No. 1 on both the Country and Classical charts. The Texas Tenors will release their second album, You Should Dream this winter, featuring a 65-piece orchestra and original songs to coincide with the December 2013 airing of their first PBS special, the nation-wide broadcast of “The Texas Tenors: You Should Dream Live.”
