Since their whirlwind debut eight years ago on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, The Texas Tenors have accumulated a long list of awards, accolades and an enthusiastic fan base, including three Emmy Awards for the PBS special You Should Dream. They have performed more than 1000 concerts around the world including a 24-city tour of the United Kingdom and China, and collaborations with some of the most prestigious symphonies in the United States including the Cleveland Pops, Houston Symphony and the Pittsburgh Symphony to name a few. People are clearly enjoying their talent as they were recently named the #10 Classical Artist in the world according to Billboard magazine. In 2018, The Texas Tenors will make their Canadian debut at the world-renowned Toronto Royal Conservatory of Music.
The Texas Tenors new album RISE will drop on Sept. 8, 2017 and is currently available for pre-order. RISE is the quintessential collection of music for the classical crossover genre.
RISE features a 65-piece orchestra and full choir with original orchestrations. From John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads” to “E lucevan le stelle” from Puccini’s Tosca, RISE showcases the wide-ranging talent of JC Fisher, Marcus Collins and John Hagen, who pour their heart and soul into favorites such as “Desperado,” Bruno Mars’ “Just the Way You Are” and a stirring rendition of “God Bless America.” The new album also features a duet with Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Bill Medley of The Righteous Brothers on the iconic “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’.” Along with the title song, The Texas Tenors debut several more originals including the haunting ballad “I Don’t Want to Let You Go” and the electrifying, boot scootin’ “Bootdaddy.”
