Wanna Play George Strait? Like, Actually BE Him Onstage?
By kncitom on May 24, 2018
If you love George Strait, then you love a guy named Dean Dillon. Maybe you haven’t heard of Dean but you’ve heard his music. Dean Dillon was George’s primary songwriter throughout most of The King’s legendary career.
Well, there’s a stage musical about Dean that is about to go into production. It’s called Tennessee Whiskey The Musical and is named for the 1983 hit Tennessee Whiskey by George Jones (that Chris Stapleton also had a hit with).
But first, they’re doing a nationwide casting call via video audition, looking for someone to play …
Talk about some big boots to fill.
But if you think you have what it takes or know someone who does, producers are asking that you shoot a video of yourself doing a George Song written by Dean, like…

Easy come Easy Go
The Best Day
It Ain’t Cool To Be Crazy About You
and there are a bunch more.
Once your video is done, upload it to YouTube or Vimeo with the hashtag #TennesseeWhiskeyAudition. And if you end up getting the part and winning a Tony award…? don’t forget to thank us for the heads up in your acceptance speech.
