Ronnie McDowell, known for his Elvis-infused style of country music, will wow audiences with his smash hits and new creations at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts on Jan. 29.
McDowell has charted more than 30 Top 40 hits on the Billboard country music charts, with 11 making the Top 10 and two reaching No. 1.
Following the death of Elvis Presley in 1977, McDowell burst onto the music scene with his heartfelt and self-penned tribute song “The King Is Gone.” The record took off immediately, gaining airplay on country and pop stations across the country. To date, “The King Is Gone” has sold more than five-million copies.
McDowell has amassed a string of hit songs since then. His chart toppers include “Older Women,” “You’re Gonna Ruin My Bad Reputation,” “Watchin’ Girls Go By,” “Personally,” “You Made A Wanted Man Of Me,” “All Tied Up” and “In A New York Minute.
McDowell has continued to write and record new music, and has never stopped touring.
