Gary has a unique perspective on the timeless music he grew up around at the Grand Ole Opry.
He honed his craft while sitting backstage in Dressing Room #3 at the Grand Ole Opry, watching, learning, and waiting to play the next show.
His Nashville journey began in 1988 when he and his band were asked to do a tour with Tommy Cash and back him up for 30 dates though most of Texas. Later that year Gary played on the Grand Ole Opry for the first time with his hero, Grand Ole Opry Star, Del Reeves. Gary continued on to work with many great Opry legends over the years including 12 years with the great Little Jimmy Dickens. He toured with Jett Williams and The Drifting Cowboys (Hank Sr.’s Original Band with Don Helms and Jerry Rivers)
The Legendary Drifters, Melba Montgomery, and backed up many more like Johnny Paycheck, Charlie Pride, LuLu Roman, Porter Wagoner, Hank Thompson, Tommy Cash, and many more.
A lifetime of great musical experiences brings stories, showmanship, music, and memories; a true gift handed down from the amazing pioneers of country music to the ones who were there to receive it.
There is a sense of passion and duty to carry on the music that is so revered yet seemingly becoming extinct. Gary strives to keep the tradition alive with a growing and loyal fan base that ranges from longtime classic country fans to a whole new generation, who are excited to discover this enduring music for the first time.
What separates this show from the rest is that Gary is NOT a Johnny Cash impersonator. Though the sounds can sometimes be haunting when Gary decides he wants to sound like Cash, Willie, and a dozen more voices. He will captivate and entertain an audience just as his predecessors did by combining great vocals, a reimagining of classics, as well as original songs that seem like standards after the first time you hear them.
Backed by a team of Nashville legendary musicians and friends, West has developed a remarkable show which is a tribute to Johnny Cash and the legends of country music including, “Remembering Waylon” and “Missin’ Merle” which have become on-the-spot fan favorites.
This is a first-class show with first-class Nashville musicians. You never know what’s to come, but you can bet it will be fun and entertaining.
In the words of Little Jimmy Dickens inscribed onto Gary’s Gibson J-200 – “This man is hard to follow, hard to follow”
