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!
