At age 9, Ronnie Lee was performing 'Folsom Prison Blues' and 'A Boy Named Sue' to audiences anywhere they would let him play.  His Mother, Luzina, was a regular fixture in the entertainment business in San Francisco, and would often bring Ronnie to her shows to sing a song or two.  At age 19, he moved to Nashville and became a familiar face in the studio and on the road, sharing the stage with acts ranging from Earl Thomas Conley, Eddy Raven and Carl Perkins to Ronnie Milsap, and of course Johnny Cash.  Ronnie has been nominated for 11 Grammy awards as a songwriter, and achieved success with his tribute song to Johnny Cash, "I Lost a Friend Today" which he wrote the day Johnny Cash passed away.   Ronnie is considered one of the top Johnny Cash Tribute artists in the nation, as well as a versatile country and rockabilly artist.  He is a member of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame

It's a great time, and we have sold out every performance we have done".
