Country Music Star Joey Canyon Turning Denver Into "Nashville West" With Exciting New TV Variety Show
New one hour country music variety TV show will feature performances by A-list country music artists as well as artist interviews, sketches and comedy. Major country stars such as Pam Tillis, Kix Brooks, Lorrie Morgan and award-winner country band Highway 101 will appear in pilot episode.
THE JOEY CANYON SHOW is a contemporary version of “a traditional old variety show,” says Canyon. The show is “music-driven”
THE JOEY CANYON SHOW 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.”
