Rockabilly Legends Honor Billy Lee Riley
 
Legendary rockabilly frontman and session player Billy Lee Riley died in the summer of 2009 and was  honored with a benefit concert at the equally-legendary Silver Moon Club in Newport, Arkansas, which lies  along the newly-dubbed Rock And Roll Highway 67.
 
Artists that performed at the show included many of his Sun Records labelmates as well as a host of other  pioneers of rock music: Sonny Burgess and the Pacers, W.S. Holland (from Johnny Cash's and Carl Perkins'  bands), Carl Mann ("Mona Lisa and "Pretend"), Ace Cannon ("Tuff"), Teddy Reidel ("Judy"), Larry Donn  ("Honey Bunn"), Dale Hawkins ("Suzie-Q"), Ben "Cooter" Jones (TV's Dukes of Hazzard), Smoochy Smith  (the Mar-Keys' "Last Night"), Travis Wammack ("Scratchy"), C.W. Gatlin (from Levon Helm's and Ronnie  Hawkins' bands) and more.
