In 1986, Cannon was asked by Dick Clark to join the All Star Country Bandfor the “Country Music Academy TV Special”. That year he recorded “The Class of ’55” with Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash. He has recorded several albums that are sold on television, including one with trumpet legend Al Hirt, which is one of the biggest “TV albums” in history. Although he started as a Rockabilly performer, Cannon’s repertoire contains everything from rock and roll to country, pop, blues and jazz, so there is something for everyone. Cannon was inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame in 2000. Two of his regular band members, will perform with him at the event.
