About Doug Allen Nash
A country boy at heart, Nashville Recording Star DOUG ALLEN NASH
grew up on a farm in northwest Illinois near a picturesque town on the
banks of the Mississippi River. He began performing in local talent
shows at age five; and had formed his own band by age twelve. That
same year his parents took him to a Johnny Cash Concert, one of several
he would attend over the years. It was just the beginning of what would
become one of Doug’s greatest passions.
At the age of twenty, Nash was performing all over the world and
receiving recognition for his extensive USO, MWR, and Armed Forces
Entertainment Tours (the U.S. Defense Department’s Certificate of
Esteem Award, Certificate of Recognition Award, and the Republic of
Korea’s Apple of Excellence Award). During a six-year period, he
entertained American troops overseas, touring 87 countries. It was meant
to be! A chance meeting at that time with the legendary Johnny Cash in a
Copenhagen, Denmark Airport inspired Doug to create his ”#1 Johnny
Cash Tribute Show.” He ultimately added another music icon, Neil
Diamond. The renowned singer/songwriter/musician/ actor has been a
part of the American musical landscape for over 50 years. The multitude
of his hit songs is the soundtrack of a generation.
Doug’s rich baritone just happens to be in the same vocal range as both
Cash and Diamond which allows him to capture the essence of these two
legendary performers in his own style and with his own genuine passion
for their music in this exciting multi- media production. “Doug Allen
Nash ‘channels’ these two American icons!” High praise from Chicago’s
top-rated WGN-TV Morning News after a recent guest performance.
When this ruggedly handsome and gifted singer and musician hits the
stage you know you are in the presence of a dynamic star and the
consummate showman. Doug Allen Nash loves to entertain and it comes
straight form his heart to his audience. Every night’s a party when this
captivating entertainer is onstage. He is dedicated to keeping the legacies
of these two beloved artists alive. Nash has the blessing of John and
June Carter Cash’s Grammy Award-winning son John Carter Cash who
heads Cash Cabin Studios in Hendersonville, Tennessee. It is where
Doug records his outstanding CD’s.
He is also a songwriter and longtime member of SESAC. One particular
song, “June,” is dedicated to June Carter Cash and was recorded at Cash
Cabin Studios under the direction of John Carter Cash. One evening,
Nash was watching a PBS documentary about Johnny Cash and was
touched to hear these words from their son about the Cash/ Carter
marriage: “He loved her tenderly.” It inspired Doug to co-write this
beautiful and heartfelt ballad with Jeff Silverman. The engineering mix
was done by Grammy Award winners John Carter Cash and Chuck
Turner. Nash has also scored hits internationally with “Long-legged
Guitar Pickin’ Man” and “If I Give My Soul,” reaching #5 and #14 on
Europe’s top 100 Country Charts, with airplay in more than 17 countries.
Nash is a member of the SAR, and always proud to acknowledge that he
is a direct descendant of John Hart, one of the 56 signers of the
Declaration of Independence. Doug’s patriotic spirit is always present at
every performance. He generously raises funds for“Families of Soldiers
and Veterans” holding countless benefit shows, often with his dear friend
and duet partner, Penny Gilley, “The Sweetheart of Country Music” and
a cousin of Country music star Mickey Gilley.
Doug’s enormous gifts as a singer, musician and dazzling entertainer
have audiences applauding his showstopping concerts in theatres, resorts
and casinos from coast to coast, including the legendary Caesars Palace
on the Las Vegas Strip and the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Nashville’s
Opryland Hotel, and the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. He was also invited
to headline “The 20th Anniversary Johnny Cash Concert” at Hollywood’s
famed Viper Room.
Yes, a country boy at heart!” Doug Allen Nash, who was inducted into
the “Legends of South Dakota Country Music Hall of Fame,” still has
farmland in his native Illinois;
and when he can take a moment to relax during his busy concert
schedule, likes to saddle up in his signature cowboy hat, boots and jeans
for a trail ride!
