American Queen Steamboat Company has announced that country music legend Lee Greenwood will be performing on six sailings during the 2021 season.
Onboard the American Duchess riverboat, Greenwood will take the Show Lounge stage for intimate performances of his iconic hits, including “God Bless the U.S.A.” Greenwood, who lives in favorite riverboat stop Clarksville, will visit with guests before taking the stage with the American Duchess Ensemble.
Here are the sailings that will feature performances by Greenwood this year:
- April 4 to 12: Memphis to Nashville (Clarksville) — An American Music Festival
- April 11 to 19: Nashville to St. Louis (Alton) — An American Music Festival
- June 20 to 28: Louisville to Nashville — An American Music Festival
- June 27 to July 5: Nashville to Louisville — Star Spangled Spectacular
- December 5 to 13: Memphis to Nashville — Country Christmas
- December 12 to 20: Nashville to Memphis — Country Christmas
“During my career, I have had the privilege of performing in unique venues across the nation; however, there is nothing like taking the stage onboard the American Duchess,” shares Greenwood. “There is no better music than the natural sounds of the paddlewheel churn the river and exchanging stories with guests. I look forward to reuniting with my riverboat family later this year.”
The rivers of America have long served as channels for spreading the music of the nation, whether it has been the sound of Kentucky bluegrass, Delta blues, or the rock and soul of Memphis. Through countless performances aboard American Queen Steamboat Company's vessels, Lee Greenwood's famed country music and patriotic anthems have become a great combination with the rhythms of the river.
“Lee Greenwood is a special member of the American Queen Steamboat Company family, and we are thrilled to welcome him back to our storied stage. A cruise highlight for many of our guests is taking in one of Lee’s engaging performances in one of our many intimate venues, like the Show Lounge onboard the American Duchess,” said John Waggoner, CEO of the American Queen Steamboat Company.
“Our guests can once again plan a holiday around seeing Lee perform as part of our 2021 season with three performances during the season.”
All-inclusive fares on these special sailings start at $2,199 per person.
