Willie, Kenny and Johnny walk the line to Twin Towns

ATTENTION country music fans, if you are free on Friday you better head to Twin Towns Services Club.

Direct from their sell-out shows in America the Kings of Country are hitting the Tweed and they are more than excited.

The tribute show to country music legends Willie Nelson, Kenny Rogers and Johnny Cash will walk the line with a night of entertainment.

Tribute king Marty Edwards aka Kenny Rogers said it was now his fifth time down under.

However the smooth sounding country music tribute star has yet to come to Tweed Heads.

"I love coming to Australia," he said.

"It's almost like coming home for us.

"We were just talking about this last night and I said to the boys I love the people in Australia and they all agreed.

"Me personally, when I come over here, I'm taken by the beauty and you're taken in by the kangaroos, wallabies, and koalas.

"But the real thing that gets you is the people.

"The Aussies have a way of making us feel welcome."

Edwards said he and his co-stars Marion Deaton (Willie Nelson) and Phillip Bauer (Johnny Cash) were amazed at how popular country music was in Australia.

"We just didn't realise how big it was," he said.

Fans will be in for a treat this weekend with the addition of a special song.

"I don't want to give too much away," he said.

"But it's for Australia and the people here.

"After the response it looks like we will have to add it to all of our shows."

If you had had the pleasure of watching the Kings of Country Edwards said you were still going to enjoy what they have to give.

"The show itself is a great show," he said.

"Even if you've never heard the music before you're gonna love it."
