With their Emmy Award-winning PBS special now airing across the country and Billboard chart-topping albums, it's easy to see why The Texas Tenors are quickly becoming one of America's favorite new vocal groups. Since their debut five years ago on "America's Got Talent," The Texas Tenors have accumulated a long list of awards and excited fans. They have performed more than 800 concerts around the world, including a 24-city tour in the United Kingdom, Shanghai, China and collaborations with some of the most prestigious symphonies, performing arts centers and arenas in the United States.
John Hagen, Marcus Collins and JC Fisher treat audiences to a harmony of country, classical, Broadway and contemporary music. They use breathtaking vocals, humor and a touch of cowboy charm to create a memorable and musically impressive show. The Texas Tenors can be found in cities across the country for extended runs including 60 concerts each year at The Starlite Theatre in Branson, Mo., where they were named Critic's Choice Group of the Year and Favorite Christmas Show and are currently Trip Advisor's No. 1 attraction in the area.
The Texas Tenors have also used their talent beyond concert halls. They have been featured entertainers on NBC's "The Today Show," Hallmark's "Home and Family" show and the 28th Annual Cinematheque Awards honoring Matthew McConaughey. Other notable performances have included NBA games, the PBR World Championships in Las Vegas and various charity events.
