DENVER - May 8, 2014 - PRLog -- Veteran country music star Joey Canyon announces THE JOEY CANYON SHOW, an exciting new one-hour country music and variety television program hosted by Canyon and co-hosted by country music artist and producer Dean Miller, son of country music star Roger Miller. The program is in a “pre-launch funding phase,” with all elements of the show in place to shoot the pilot episode. The weekly show, which will originate "where the music meets the mountains," Canyon says, will feature performances by A-list country artists, as well as star interviews from Nashville. Artists who have already been interviewed for the show include Kix Brooks (Brooks and Dunn), Pam Tillis, Lorrie Morgan, and the award-winning band Highway 101. Canyon is also signing other top country artists for the show’s first season. The show is being produced and offered for cable television, national syndication or for a major TV network.

THE JOEY CANYON SHOW is a contemporary version of “a traditional old variety show,” says Canyon. The show is “music-driven” but will also include comedy, sketches, man on the street interviews, appearances by well-known sports figures, and more. “It’s a cross between THE DEAN MARTIN SHOW, THE JACKIE GLEASON SHOW, THE GLEN CAMPBELL HOUR, and a little bit of HEE-HAW.”

is being produced and shot in Denver, the first of its kind to be created and produced in Colorado, Canyon says. “We want to kind of meld Nashville and Hollywood together and let it come out of Denver as a musically wholesome show,” says Canyon. “We want to put Denver on the map that way. This is not a Hollywood glitz product. We want to be different. We want to make our own mark in Colorado.”

“I’m hoping THE JOEY CANYON SHOW is going to be an exciting representation of the country music tradition,” says co-host Dean Miller.

Curtis Stone, co-founder and award-winning bass player for the groundbreaking country group Highway 101, is the show’s music director, “in a kind of Paul Schaffer capacity,” he says.

“I think the show’s going to be cool,” Stone adds. “It’s country-driven, an old-school style country show being re-grooved for contemporary audiences. It’s going to cover all the bases of old and new country.”

Joey Canyon has over three decades of storied accomplishments in the country music and entertainment industries as a singer and recording artist, songwriter, co-producer and co-director, voice-over artist and actor. In 2012 Joey’s career soared with the release of his album “Canyon Country,” which yielded him a No.1 hit nationally with his original song, “Lonely Love.” Also in 2012, Joey was nominated in seven categories from the Independent Music Network and New Music Weekly, which included “artist of the year,” “best song,” “breakout artist of the year,” and “crossover artist of the year.”
