Country artist BILLY DEAN is making CHINESE TV history TODAY (2/4), as he becomes the first Country artist to appear and entertain on CHINA’s international BEIJING TV. Last month, DEAN made the 7,000 -mile trek to CHINA to attend and perform at BEIJING’s annual SPRING FESTIVAL GLOBAL GALA, an event that celebrates the CHINESE NEW YEAR.
The TV special will reach over 100 million viewers throughout ASIA, EUROPE and parts of the U.S. It also features performances by international stars LARA FABIAN (BELGIUM), DAVID D’OR (ISRAEL), CONNIE TALBOT (U.K.), CRISTINA HOYOS (SPAIN), LAGAYLIA (SWEDEN) and TAN JING (CHINA).
BILLY said: “Performing on this huge television special was an honor and an amazing experience for me. I had so much fun with those folks. Only downside was the jet lag!”
DEAN was joined by a live orchestra onstage and chose to perform the DAVE DUDLEY & SAWYER BROWN classic, “Six Days On The Road.”
He added: “CHINA is known for its hard working men and women. I thought ‘Six Days On The Road’ would be a very appropriate. Hopefully, I turned a few people on to DAVE and the SAWYER BROWN boys!”
