Joey Canyon

January 2016 will kick off in fine style for Traditional Country-based singer/songwriter, recording artist and performer Joey Canyon, who will unveil his very own weekly television series on RFD-TV. Beginning January 8, “The Joey Canyon Show” will air Friday evenings at 10 p.m. EST / 9 p.m. CST.

“About three years ago, I was watching TV one night, but there didn’t seem as if there was anything worth while watching given two or three hundred channels on cable,” Joey Canyon said. “I was thinking ‘Can’t someone put out any quality entertainment for a change?’ It was the Good Lord that put it in my head that he’d given me all these special gifts and talents as HE said: ‘You’re going to do it.’ ”

“The Joey Canyon Show” will feature a who’s who of top Country artists, such as T.G. Sheppard, Moe Bandy, T. Graham Brown, and making one of her first network appearances in many years – Sylvia, famous for her iconic hits such as “Nobody” and “Drifter.” Also appearing in one of the first thirteen episodes will be Matthew and Gunnar Nelson – twin sons of Rock & Roll icon Rick Nelson, who topped the Billboard Hot 100 in 1990 with “(Can’t Live Without Your) Love and Affection.”

Filmed in Joey Canyon’s home base of Colorado, the performer is excited to show viewers the beauty of his home state. “I really want to show off my home state to the viewers. I want to be an ambassador for the state like John Denver was. The 26 openings of the show will be shot in various locations from Aspen, Glenwood Springs to Vail, as well as downtown Denver. There’s a certain look that I wanted, and I needed it to be here. A lot of people didn’t think I would be able to get any Nashville artists here, but they all wanted to come. That’s been a real blessing.”

Also a part of “The Joey Canyon Show” will be a “Man on the Street” interview segment conducted by Joey Canyon’s co-host, acclaimed singer and songwriter Dean Miller. Also unique to the series will be a weekly “Top Eight” list.

“Every other show has a top ten, but we’ll have a top eight list, inspired by bull riders trying to pull eight seconds out of the chute,” Canyon said.

In addition, the show plans to shine the spotlight on good works done by some of his favorite charities. “We’ll also be recognizing individuals and foundations that help other people as well,” Joey Canyon added.

While Canyon is confident that the series will attract a viewership that will run across many age demographics, he plans to make the show appealing to the 45+ age group – a rarity in today’s television market.

“There’s a void there for those folks, and we’re going to fill it,” he said. “Somewhere along the line, there will be younger people who will tune in and like the show because it’s a well-produced show with great music. We’re just being us, and I think people will like what we’re trying to do here. We want to give quality entertainment to those that deserve it and that’s what we’re going to do.”

Counting among his musical influences such artists as Vern Gosdin, Marty Robbins, and Waylon Jennings, Joey Canyon’s music definitely features a traditional-sounding lean. He has performed on such hallowed stages as the ACM-winning Palomino Club and has recorded in the finest recording studios that LA and Nashville has to offer. His production work has graced broadcasts from NFL Films and PBS, and he has been presented a citation from the Governor of his home state for writing “Save Our Colorado,” an anti-pollution song. His current album is titled The Rhythm Of Livin.’
