Michael Moore as Willie Nelson

 Michael Moore was born and raised in McKinney, Texas. His passion for Willies’s music came at an early age. “I can remember hearing his music coming out of my grandmother’s old AM radio,” and even then, Michael knew that there was something unique about Willie Nelson. Nelson’s voice and unusual style of phrasing are hard to match. Through many years of study and about a million “Whiskey Rivers” later, Moore’s ability to capture” the country music legend’s voice and style are considered by many to be the best in the world. Michael is also an accomplished guitar player and performs all of the guitar parts played by Nelson in his shows. When asked what kind of music he likes, Moore said, “Everything from The Carpenters to Metallica.” Michael has performed his Willie tribute show throughout the USA as a solo artist and also with several top tribute shows including Cavalcade Of Stars, Mirror Image, Memories Theatre and Superstars Live in Concert.
