From The Las Vegas Sun: "Nashville recording artist Doug Allen Nash captures the appearance, vocals, speech, mannerisms and spirit of these icons."

A country boy at heart! DOUG ALLEN NASH, who grew up on a farm in NW Illinois near Galena, began performing in local talent shows at age five; and had formed his own band by age 12. That was the same year his parents took him to a Johnny Cash concert. By the time he was 20 years-old, Doug was performing all over the globe and receiving recognition for his extensive USO Tours. It was at this time, during his travels, that Doug had a chance meeting with Johnny Cash at the Copenhagen, Denmark airport! Subsequently, Nash saw Johnny Cash perform live on several occasions. Today Doug Allen Nash is also a successful Nashville recording artist who was inspired to create this tribute show and pen the ballad, "June," in honor of June Carter Cash. The song was recorded at the Cash Cabin Recording Studio in Hendersonville, Tennessee, co-produced by Grammy Award winners John Carter Cash and Chuck Turner.

DOUG was inspired to include the Neil Diamond tribute because the legendary singer-songwriter/musician/actor has been a part of the American musical landscape for over fifty years. The multitude of hit songs he has written, recorded and performed is the soundtrack of a generation.

Doug has performed internationally in over 85 countries while touring for USO, MWR and Armed Forces Entertainment. He was a featured artist on the Armed Forces Network commercial in Europe; and appeared on radio and television interviews as well as radio play on European Music Charts. Nash has also performed nationally from the Las Vegas strip to major casinos and resorts such as Sun Valley, Idaho, Opryland Hotel and Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. He has been the opening act for Wayne Newton, Charlie Daniels, Huey Lewis and the News, The Oak Ridge Boys, Montgomery Gentry and other national recording artists as well as being the house band for the largest grossing venue in Texas, "City Streets." Nash co-produced the trademark show "Almost Angels," a long-running production in Atlantic City.

It is because of Doug Allen Nash's great performances and charisma that he received the United States Department of Defense's Certificate of Esteem Award; Certificate of Appreciation Award; Republic of Korea's Apple of Excellence Award; and was inducted into the South Dakota Country Music Hall of Fame.

Doug has performed many styles and varieties of music over the course of his career in the entertainment business and continues to perform with passion. He is currently performing his "Johnny Cash/Neil Diamond Tribute - Two American Icons."
