You can’t help but smile, and even laugh out loud, as the cast of “Troubadour” gathers on stage at the end of the production, singing, “God made rhinestones so we can sparkle.”
This production certainly sparkles with an outstanding cast and wonderful original music, penned by Kristian Bush, part of duo Sugarland and a great solo artist.
“Troubadour,” presented at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, gives an intimate look at a Billy Mason, an aging country music legend who is stepping down as his son, Joe, tries to pave his own way in the industry.
Radney Foster, a well-known songwriter in the Nashville community, does a great job portraying Billy Mason, who is struggling with his retirement. He doesn’t want to hand the reins over to young Joe, who wants a music career of his own.
Zach Seabaugh, who was on The Voice in 2015, also gives an outstanding job as a young man with an amazing voice who is on the brink of his own career in country music. At times, I see a young Elvis in Seabaugh. Other times, a little Tim McGraw comes through. He is a wonderful musician, as well as actor, and has a great future ahead of him.
