THE OUTLAWS RIDE AGAIN

Clista A. Calhoun Center - Mansfield

An Event Sponsored by

BackAlley Theatre

 

 

The outlaw performers who changed country music forever are bringing their legend back

to life at 7p.m, April 19th, at the Clista A. Calhoun Center

Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson brought joy and truth to audiences worldwide. This collaboration will be recreated when internationally acclaimed musicians and tribute artists Coley Chaudoin and Marion Deaton take the stage.

 Coley Chaudoin has been a respected guitarist, songwriter and vocalist for over 30 years, adding tribute artist to his list of accomplishments. When Coley takes the stage you know Waylon is in the house.

 Marion Deaton appears with Coley as Willie Nelson.  This will be Marion’s last USA appearance before his 2014 “Smooth Willie” Australia/New Zealand Tour.  

 Both performers look and sound ‘dead on’ like Waylon and Willie.

This show celebrates the music of Waylon and Willie and has audiences on their feet asking for more.
