Deemed the queen of country music, Reba McEntire caught her big break at a rodeo.
Though he passed away 37 years ago, Elvis Presley is still regarded as the king of rock ’n’ roll.
On Aug. 30, three people whose very jobs are to honor these icons will perform in Warrenville.
Bobby’s Bar-B-Q will host “Elvis Through the Years with The Stylings of Reba.”
Performing as Presley will be David Lee from Alabama and Austin Irby from South Carolina.
Coming in as McEntire will be Tara Kay from Alabama.
Tickets are $15.
The show starts at 7 p.m. in the restaurant’s Horse Creek Banquet Hall, 1897 Jefferson Davis Highway.
Lee has been an Elvis tribute artist since 1995.
He is now known as a “World Champion Elvis Entertainer,” according to his biography.
“His show is one of the most authentic, most professional shows around. It is done with the utmost class and respect for Elvis and is suitable for any age group,” according to his online biography.

Irby was raised in Anderson and started singing at his church at age 4.
“His style and ability to capture the young and innocent side of the 1950s Elvis has won him fans throughout the country,” according to his biography. “He enjoys keeping the music alive and paying tribute to whom he calls ‘the greatest entertainer to ever live’ and believes it is a true blessing and honor.”

Kay “is a feisty redheaded singing sensation with all the country charm of the Oklahoma diva she imitates,” according to her biography.
She has met McEntire on a few occasions.
For example, in 2010, “Kay was Reba’s guest on ‘Good Morning America’ where she had a VIP area to stand next to Reba’s band and was taken on a VIP tour while the talk show was (filming),” according to her website.
