Trey Hensley has been performing since age seven. After picking up a guitar at the age of ten, he quickly took the bluegrass world by storm – even performing on the Grand Ole Opry when he was eleven. Three years ago, the now 19-year old,seasoned artist followed his heart and interests into the world of country music. Saturday, December 31st, 2011, at 7:30 p.m. the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, will present a concert of bluegrass music by Trey Hensley & Drivin’ Force. Admission to the concert is $7 for adults, $1 for children 6 to 11, under age 6 free
Now that his second country CD has been released, the Jonesborough, Tennessee native is heading out playing his own brand of traditional honky-tonk. Last summer, Trey hit the road with his four-piece band for a tour that carried him from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, Nebraska to North Carolina, and beyond. During the tour, his group opened for Steve Wariner, Randy Owen, and Marty Stuart.
Despite his young age, Trey has already forged his own style. His talent and stage presence are indicative of a performer far beyond his age. Trey’s tremendous talent and his down home humility impress everyone who meets him. You won’t hear better guitar picking anywhere, and his vocals are every bit as amazing as his playing. If you aren’t a fan of Trey’s already, you will be when you hear him.
