At long last, Here are the photos and show review from Ty Herndon’s May 6, 2011, show in Erwin, Tenn. And a great show, it was. I am very happy to report that Ty Herndon puts on a show every bit as good as he did back in the 1990s. He looks the same, sounds the same, and I do believe he’s even picked up a few new dance moves over the past few years.
Our local high school auditorium was decked out with tiers of stage lights and a lot of speakers to give the local audience everything they would expect form a Nashville production.
Like most people, I remember Ty for his hits like “What Mattered Most,” “A Man Holding On (To a Woman Letting Go”), “Hands of a Working Man,” and “It Must Be Love.” During his 15-year career, Ty had three No. 1 singles, countless Top 40 hits, and eight albums.
He talked a little about his latest CD, “Journey On,” a collection of country-tinged inspirational songs. The song “Journey On” earned Herndon two Dove Awards and a Grammy nomination, and is also being used in a campaign for ALS awareness, and will be played at CVS stores in the coming weeks.
Ty was very comfortable on stage, talking to the audience and joking with them, while singing the songs that the audience was waiting to hear. He is backed by band members Chris Rasparte, guitar; Dave Northrup, drums; Scott Saunders, Piano; and Klay Krazner, bass.
Like his opening act, Ricochet, Ty also hung around after the show and talked to the fans. He signed autographs, posed for pictures, and even accepted gifts from a few of the fans from the audience.
Ty Herndon is definitely an artist I would like to see again. Here are a few pictures form the show, and after the show with fans.
That’s it for this morning. I hope you guys have a great Tuesday. I have a few things to put up for you tomorrow, some local, that I hope a lot of the people in this area will get to be part of.
