The Marble Falls Opry is proud to present a special tribute show to Country Music Hall of Famer Conway Twitty with his grandson Tre Twitty.
Tre Twitty, the son of Michael Twitty and the grandson of the late Conway Twitty, is a remarkable young talent. When you combine dark hair, enticing soft blue eyes, a gentle smile and a wonderful personality with two generations of hit song makers, you have a talented rising star.
Tre was born in Nashville in 1976. In 1981, he moved to Moon Lake, Mississippi, the same area in which his Father and Grandfather were raised. He attended grade school in Helena and high school in Hattiesburg. He was very active in all sports including basketball, football and baseball.
After high school, he spent a year of trying to decide what he wanted out of life before finally joining the Air Force. During his time in service, he traveled the world. He trained and served on one of the highest levels of Honor Guard that the Air Force has. Tre was discharged in August of 2000 after four years of service.
Soon after that, he found himself back in Nashville and on the road at one of his father’s shows. His father asked him to come up and sing a song one night for fun. Tre chose to sing "The Rose" and with his "Poppy’s" (Conway’s) growl and same great voice, he drove the crowd wild.
Since then he has been traveling with his Dad on the road around the world with the powerful "Memories of Conway" show. It only took that one show for Tre to know what he wanted in life and that was a chance in the music business and a shot at the top.
It is truly amazing that this young man, the third generation of Twittys, could possibly be so much like his "Poppy" (Conway). But even more, it is truly a blessing that he has chosen to share his gift with the world.
Tre will be performing some of his grandfather’s biggest hits including "Hello Darlin" "Slow Hand" "This Time I’ve Hurt Her More Than She Loves Me" and some of the Loretta and Conway duets with Kimberly Murray.
Other entertainers on the show will include Justin Trevino, Sammy Geistweidt, Benny Fred Kothmann, Shane Lively and Charley Walton. Tracy Pitcox will MC the show.
