BENNIE WHEELS

Bennie began his entertainment career as an Elvis Tribute Artist.  Although successful, working for Dallas' top look a like agencies, performing countless corporate events, live concerts, private functions, and with many contest wins (including two-time "Images Of The King" World Competition Finalist), he soon realized that with over 100,000 Elvis Tribute acts, it was a flooded market.  When the hit movie, "Walk The Line" was released, Bennie was drawn to the story and music of the legendary JOHNNY CASH.  After touring Sun Records (Memphis, TN) in the Summer of 2006, he vowed to learn how to play the guitar that had gathered dust in his office for so long, and give his best shot as a Johnny Cash Tribute Artist.  Instantly, Bennie realized that his vocal registry had an uncanny likeness to Johnny Cash in every way...even his normal speaking voice.  And even from the first moment hitting the stage as "Johnny Cash", it was perfectly clear how natural Bennie's tribute to The Man In Black came to him!
