CONFEDERATE RAILROAD

Confederate Railroad first rolled onto the national country music scene in the early 90s with its unique style and sound. Headed by founder and frontman Danny Shirley, the former backup band for both David Allan Coe and Johnny Paycheck got their big break by signing with Atlantic Records. The first single from their debut album (“Confederate Railroad”) was “She Took It Like A Man”. It went to No. 26, a preview of what was to come. “The next two singles, “Jesus and Mama” and “Queen of Memphis” went to the top of the charts. Three more huge hits followed, “Trashy Women”, “When You Leave That Way You Can Never Go Back”, and “She Never Cried”.
 
“Trashy Women” would lead to a Grammy nomination and become their signature song. That album with six hits and nearly three million sales brought Confederate the Academy of Country Music’s Best New Group Award in 1993 as well as numerous nominations from the Country Music Association and the British Country Music Foundation. The second album, “Notorious”, produced one of the group’s most popular songs “Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind” which became a No. One video as well. “Elvis and Andy” and “Summer in Dixie” would further establish the Railroad as one of the most versatile acts in the business.
 
Confederate Railroad will be live at The Carolina Opry Theater, for one night only, on January 26, 2020 at 7:00pm. Tickets are on sale now. To buy tickets call 800-843-6779, or visit the box office.

PURE MAGIC STARRING THE WAGSTERS.

From the groundbreaking producer and director that introduced live entertainment to Myrtle Beach over 30 years ago, Pure Magic is an entirely new production starring The Wagsters. The Wagsters bring magic, amazement, comedy and drama together with captivating card tricks, confounding disappearing acts and even some silly sleight of hand.

With a charm and wit that is truly contagious, this illusionary duo has already won many hearts. Voted Magicians of the Year by Myrtle Beach Herald, The Wagsters have been featured as a special act of Gilmore’s Thunder and Light show and The Carolina Opry Christmas Special over the last two seasons and were so well received that Gilmore saw an opportunity for a feature show. Gilmore said, “This is the sort of intimate magic show that every family loves and Myrtle Beach has had a void in this area of entertainment. It’s the best kind of good clean family fun. The Wagsters are young, charming and talented, their star will rise quickly. People of all ages love this appealing and compelling show.”
