WHAT IS THE GRAND TOUR?
The success of Gil Grand’s One Night with Conway show has awakened an audience with an appetite for classic country music. This year, Grand takes it one step further with his new ‘live’ production appropriately titled The Grand Tour: A Night Of Classic Country Music. The 90-minute show is backed by award-winning musicians, complete with classic country wardrobe, that takes an audience back to the golden age of country music. Concert goers and bus riders can expect to hear the songs of George Jones, Ray Price, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Kenny Rogers and so many more.
Kevin Roberts, General Manager of the Park Theater in McMinnville, TN had this to share: “Gil Grand’s performance of “One Night with Conway” was like being transported back in time. His vocals seemed effortless and it was an authentic representation of Conway’s music and silky voice, not some cheesy “wannabe” tribute show. During intermission and after the show, I had person after person tell me when they closed their eyes they felt like they were in the room with Conway himself! This was a captivating performance and our hope is to have Gil back many times...absolute professional!”
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
THIS SHOW IN PARTICULAR HAD ME COMPLETELY BEWILDERED
Grand had played the part so authentically that I had to blink myself back into reality several times throughout the night because of the stark likeness to Twitty he embodied in costume, stage presence, and in vocal similarity.

I'VE EVER HEARD
Amazing how much he sounds like my buddy Conway.
Multi-Platinum Selling Country Artist
Gil honorably pays the ultimate tribute to one of music's biggest legends and elite voices. Gil sounds so strikingly like Conway, you'd swear Conway himself was on stage.

ORIGINAL MUSIC FROM
Gil Grand is a GRAMMY award winner and an eight-time Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) nominee and CCMA “Male Vocalist of the Year” and “Record Producer of the Year” winner. His debut album on Sony Records’ Monument imprint, Famous First Words, produced a No. 1 single along with several top 10s, gaining Grand the momentum to release two more award-winning projects.
In 1997, Gil Grand signed a music publishing deal with “TMP” out of Toronto Canada headed by Frank Davies and moved to Nashville. Within just a few months of his arrival, he secured two cuts, “Love Trip” with Virgin recording artist Jerry Kilgore and “On Again Off Again” with MCA recording artist Tracy Byrd. His songwriting skills and singing ability immediately caught the attention of top record executives, and he soon signed a major U.S. record deal with Sony Music Nashville’s Monument Records. His debut album, Famous First Words, gained the respect and accolades of the country music industry on both sides of the border.
On the strength of that record, Grand received 3 CCMA nods, including Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year and Wrangler Rising Star. His impressive sophomore effort, Burnin, netted him 5 CCMA nominations, including Single of the Year, Song of the Year, Video of the Year and Album of the Year, with Grand taking home the award for Male Vocalist of the Year. In 2006, Gil Grand released his third album, Somebody’s Someone, which he co-produced with Joel Feeney, earning a CCMA award for Record Producer of the Year.
He moved back to Nashville, and in October 2007, Grand and business partner Randy Gee launched Grand & Gee Music Group, a Nashville-based music publishing company and full-service recording studio. The company earned CCMA nominations for Music Publisher of the Year in 2009, 2010, 2011and 2012. Bucky Covington brought G&G their first top 30 single with “I Want My Life Back,” and Chris Young’s big number one hit “Tomorrow” became Grand & Gee Music’s first #1 hit and SESAC Song of the Year. G&G earned a GRAMMY® for “God and My Girlfriends” recorded by Reba.
