Past Live Shows
Singer. Songwriter. Radio & Television Personality. Stage & Film Performer. Texas Music Legend. Jerry K. Green is as versatile as he is talented, and with decades of life and entertainment experience under his belt, he says he’s just getting started.
His 2019 highlights began with a four-page center-fold feature in the TEXAS MUSIC magazine's 2019 Winter issue, published in January. February brought a double feature. First, Participation in the Grammy Nomination celebration of the Bear Family Records 20-CD/224-page-book Box Set titled "At The Louisiana Hayride Tonight," at Shreveport's Municipal Auditorium where the Louisiana Hayride was conducted when Green was a featured performer in 1952 and 1953, before drafted into the army. Also in February, release of the Bear Family Records 40-track/24-page insert CD titled "Winter Party 1959,"a 50th anniversary tribute to Richie Valens, Buddy Holly, and The Big Bopper, who all died in a small plane crash in February of 1959. The CD includes "The Ballad Of Donna And Peggy Sue" written by Green and Rockabilly Pioneer Ray Campi, and recorded by Campi. Plus, the insert relates the story of how the song came to be written. In October, Green was inducted into the Lewisville (Texas) High School Hall of Fame, where he graduated in 1951.
Most recently, Green has been working to bring the inspiring story of Tripod the Three Legged Dog back to the world with a 13-track album titled, “Tripod Legacy XIII.” The album includes 13 unique versions of the song performed by Green and some of Nashville’s most popular voices. The versatile record includes Matt Dame’s raspy country rendition, Stephanie Willett-Willis’ Kesha-inspired pop version, Adam Cunningham’s Spanish performance, and every genre in between.
As part of the Tripod Legacy Campaign, Green is partnering with animal rescue groups to put Tripod, and the many renditions of his song, to work. By raising awareness and funds for rescue organizations, Green aims to give homeless dogs a voice…and hopefully lives as big as Tripod’s. Learn more about the Tripod Legacy Campaign here.
In his famous song, Green says, “You could do twice as much, if you tried half as hard as Tripod the Three Legged Dog,” and it’s safe to say he has and will continue to follow his own advice.
