The 3 Redneck Tenors are a new breed in the “tenor genre” – their musical comedy featuring classically trained veteran artists is like the Blue Collar Comedy Tour goes to Carnegie Hall – down home laughs with big city music!  It has been said that if Larry the Cable Guy, Il Divo, and Mrs. Doubtfire had a baby, that child would be The 3 Redneck Tenors.  Written by opera-veteran Matthew Lord with music arranged by award-winning composer Craig Bohmler, and starring Mr. Lord, Blake Davidson, and Grace Lord, The 3 Redneck Tenors were top finalists on “America’s Got Talent” and have been thrilling audiences since 2006.

These singin’ songbirds of the trailer park have seen it all, sing it all, and make us laugh ’till we double over, reminding us that in life, it’s not just the destination, it’s the journey. Get ready for one side splitting ride as we go on an excursion only The 3 Redneck Tenors could have had… delighting audiences with their vocal prowess and a smorgasbord of songs, ranging from Country to Broadway to Classical and everything in between!
