MEET THE GUYS

       From the age of 2 when he learned the words to Elvis "Hound Dog" to the first time he performed before an audience in a Nashville talent showcase at age 8, Johnny knew that the stage is where he belonged. By age 11 Johnny had his first band and began performing his "LITTLE ELVIS" show in his hometown of Texarkana, Texas and surrounding cities until he had played all that the small towns had to offer. To further his budding career Johnny and his mother moved to Dallas, Texas. It didn't take long for the young Lovett to start making a name for himself performing everywhere from Texas Honkytonks to hotel showrooms to even performing the half-time show at the once famed Texas Stadium.  For 9 years Johnny was the official Elvis for the Dallas based oldies station 98.7 KLUV. Having the radio station boosted his popularity all the way to the top. It was at that time that Johnny was doing shows with such artists as Little Richard, Chuck Berry, The Beach Boys and Tommy James to name a few. Before long Johnny was headlining shows to sellout crowds all over the country.
     Johnny began a 4 month engagement at James Burton's Rock-n-Roll Café in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1999.  (James Burton is a Hall Of Fame guitarist that played for the likes of Ricky Nelson, Jerry Lee Lewis, Emmilou Harris and Elvis Presley to name a few). Johnny is the ONLY Elvis Tribute Artist that has been backed on stage by James Burton. 
       Johnny has also has a successful run in the Country Music field thanks to Country Outlaw Willie Nelson. In 2005 Johnny was placed in the line-up of stars gathered together to make up Willie's annual 4th Of July Picnic
at Billy Bob's Texas in Fort Worth Texas. That same year Johnny's first original single, "Three Feet Tall" was released through Cryen' Eyes Records. In 2007 his self titled album was released which was recognized by CMT (Country Music Television) and was added along with the greatest names in Country Music with his own profile page at CMT.com. Johnny and his band worked the road 9 years opening for Travis Tritt, Wynonna, Josh Turner and Neal McCoy to name a few. The band broke up in 2011 and Johnny took some time off to reinvent himself.  
      In 2013 Johnny returned to the stage with his show "The Man Of Many Voices" and has been working ever since. Now 2017, he is paying tribute to the legendary MERLE HAGGARD....

      Ace began his music career as a young teen in 1986.  In his hometown of Texarkana, Texas he would perform at school functions, the local fair and opry shows showcasing his young talent to the locals.  His popularity quickly grew over the next few years and Ace sought to do bigger and better things.  By 1991 Ace was performing in Las Vegas playing such venues as The Desert Inn, The Sands, and The Las Vegas Hilton.  From '92 until '94 he was touring all over the U.S. until he took on a USO tour to entertain for U.S. troops.  The USO tour took Ace and his band through 23 different countries.
       In 1995 Ace signed a recording contract with Star Records where he was able to record and release his own original music.  After recording a few albums, getting local and surrounding area radio stations to play his music, the year 2000 Ace would find his music on the Billboard Charts with the song "Neon Therapy".  In 2004 the song "It’s About Time" was released and peaked at #48 on the Billboard charts.
      Ace's music has been used in movies for soundtrack releases.  He has appeared on television Nationally as well as Globally.  Now taking his career to a different level, Ace decided to pay homage to one of his biggest inspirations in music performing his tribute to the late Johnny Paycheck.  Among the thousands of Elvis Tribute Artists, Marilyn Monroe Look-a-likes and Michael Jackson impersonators, Ace is the ONLY entertainer paying tribute to the Outlaw Icon of Country Music.  Ace's likeness, voice and stage presence of the great Johnny Paycheck is uncanny.   Ace has left audiences with a feeling of seeing the "Real Thing".   Johnny Paycheck will always be remembered as one of Country Music's original outlaws and one of the "Most Trusted Friends to the Workin’ Man"...
