This passion along with 21 #1 hits and being ranked among the top 100 country artists of all time has made him one of the most popular live performers on tour today. It’s only natural with a show chock full of chart topping hits like “Last Cheaters Waltz," ”I Loved ‘Em Everyone," ”Do You Wanna Go To Heaven” & “Party Time” that TG has developed a reputation as a solid performer who delivers exactly what audiences want. All this and more combined with a steadfast dedication to entertainment has truly made him one of the great Legends in country music.
