We had the 3 Redneck Tenors play for our homeowners as part of our annual concert series. I have been at Heritage Ranch for 11 years and I can honestly say that this was the best performance we have ever had! Their singing was amazing AND the comedy was outstanding! When you combine the two, it made for a show that left the audience clamoring for more! We will definitely have the 3 Redneck Tenors back again at Heritage Ranch Golf and Country Club! — Eric Hoyle, Heritage Golf and Country Club, McKinney, TX
The 3 Redneck Tenors are a theater manager's dream. They are just what their name implies, fine artists with a funny outlook on life and business. As a group and as individuals, they are supremely talented musicians, capable of equally excellent performances of 'Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer' and 'Ave Maria.' They can keep an audience in stitches with their comedy sketches and in tears with the beauty of their voices. They are not DIVAS. They are SHOWMEN. Over the past several years, they have done many performances at the MCL Grand in Lewisville, and have always drawn a great crowd. I highly recommend them to any theater. — Jim Wear, Arts Center Manager, Medical Center of Lewisville Grand Theater, Lewisville, TX
