With Special Guest Gary Mule Deer
"There are a number of good singers, a smaller handful of truly great singers, and then there’s Johnny Mathis." - Barbra Streisand
Celebrating his 61st year in the music industry, legendary singer Johnny Mathis is Columbia Records longest-signed artist. A sublime vocalist whose approach to pop music eclipses passing fads and trends, Mathis has performed songs in an incredible variety of styles and categories — from music composed for stage and film to golden era jazz standards, contemporary pop hits, and holiday music, all of which has assured his reputation as one of the most enduring vocalists in music history.
Best-known for his supremely popular hits like "Chances Are," "It's Not For Me To Say," and "Misty," Mathis has recorded more than 80 albums, 6 Christmas albums, and has sold millions of records worldwide. During his extensive career, he has had 3 songs inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, achieved 50 Hits on Billboard's Adult Contemporary Chart, and ranks as the all-time #6 album artist in the history of Billboard's pop album charts. He has received 5 GRAMMY Nominations, and in 2003 he was given the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.
On June 25, 2017, Mathis comes to Memphis to perform some of his greatest hits and personal favorites.About Gary Mule Deer
