“Benny’s music has literally taken him around the world,” said Mel Strickland, producer of the jubilee. “His sound is reminiscent of Randy Travis, Alan Jackson and Lefty Frizzell. He’s a terrific singer and performer. We’re fortunate to have him here.”
With more than a dozen recordings under his belt, the Stevenson, Ala., native has garnered many compliments over the years.
“Benny’s voice is like water running over a mill wheel. Like kicking off your shoes and sitting on the front porch at the end of a hot summer’s day. He folds you in song like a soft blanket your mother used to wrap you in,” according to the late, legendary Grand Ole Opry announcer, Grant Turner.
“YouTube is a good place to get a taste of Benny’s music and the Cowboy Jubilee is a terrific venue to see and hear Benny perform,” Strickland said. “It’s a fast-moving show where you hear a number of performers perform various styles of music.”
Also appearing on the jubilee are regulars including Southern Gospel singer Amy McAlister, singer-songwriter Elmer Bramlett, and the Cowboy Church Band and Chorale. “The Gospel Gun” Will Nichols is the announcer, and rodeo clown and former bronc rider, Bob Corely is host, Strickland said.
“The Cowboy Jubilee is a come-as-you-are event,” Strickland continued. “And is located between Blackburn Road and Blue Springs Road in the Dockery Heights subdivision.”
