Music legends to receive sincerest form of flattery
By Brien Murphy

Can't get to Nashville to see your favorite country music legends?



An Illinois group is organizing a show in Anson that is almost like the real thing.

Some Big Country singers who resemble and sound like country music stars, plus a few out-of-towners and an Anson native who found some success in the music business, perform Saturday at ''Tribute to the Legends,'' which will recreate some of the biggest songs in the classic country music genre.

The Traditional Country Music Foundation, headed by Maggie Penn of Illinois, is producing the show. The group discovered the Anson Opera House because Penn's friend and drummer Jack Higgs is from the Big Country and has relatives in Anson.

Area residents auditioned for the show, organized by the Traditional Country Music Foundation of Illinois. The singers who were chosen were accepted based on their ability look and sound like a classic country music artist.

Big Country residents who auditioned successfully are:


Samantha Allen, Abilene - Patsy Cline


Mary Lee Vinson, Hawley - Anne Murray


Anna Kay Tilton, Brownwood - Dolly Parton

Joining them will be Rudy Grant, a Colorado singer who impersonates Charley Pride; New Mexico resident Willie Lee Luster (Hank Williams Sr.); Oklahoman Mary McDonald (Kitty Wells); and Maggie Penn (Loretta Lynn).

Penn's band Maggie and the Misfits will perform with the singers.

Johnny Moore, an Anson native who left his successful country music career after his friend, singer Jim Reeves, was killed in a an airplane crash, returns to his hometown for the show. Moore, who in recent years resumed his singing career, is also the uncle of Jeannie C. Riley (''Harper Valley PTA'').

Tribute To The Legends

“You Be The Star”

Opera House Anson, Texas

Saturday May 5, 2007


The show was a sell out, not even standing room Saturday night. They brought chairs in and lined up along the outer walls of the opera House.
The show went on for 3 hours, the people

did NOT want it to end.



Rudy Grant as Charley Pride, got sick and could

barely talk when he called to tell me he would

not be able to make the show.



The artists that performed were,

Sam Allen (Patsy Cline)

Mary McDonald (Kitty Wells)

She even plays the guitar as Kitty did.

Mary Lee Vinson (Anne Murray)

Willie Luster (Hank Williams Sr,)

Had his son with him playing a

fantastic fiddle on those Hank songs

Danny Letz from Anson, played the

steel guitar for us, and he too added a lot

to the Hank songs as well as the other songs.

They looked and sounded so much like the

artists they portrayed it gave ya chills.



Johnny Moore was happy to be playing in his hometown and he too did a great job. He has

his nephew Kenny Moore with him playing

some lead and rthym guitar.



When we got all the artists the performed and those
that auditioned, but did not get to be on the show

on stage for the finale of....I Saw The Light...with

Willie Luster (Hank Williams) leading it off,

we got a standing ovation!!!



The folks in Anson want to make this a yearly show!!!

Several folks told us we need to take that show

on the road. So far everyone wants to go for it.
