Heatherly creates an authentic Rock-A-Billy/Country/Blues-Rock sound as well as a visually fascinating spectacle. His typical set features everything from his hit originals to classic covers to deep blues. All presented with a veteran showman’s invitation to enjoy and celebrate the moment with a wide array of audiences. Live shows have garnered Heatherly interest and exciting opportunities from some unexpected sources. Legendary actor Morgan Freeman books Heatherly's unusual act at his Mississippi blues joint regularly. The Smithsonian Institute asked him to perform for a tribute to Princess Grace.
Over a decade ago, Heatherly stormed the country charts with his rockabilly-inflected revival of the Statler Brothers classic hit, “Flowers On the Wall.” The original recording had been featured in the film Pulp Fiction. Shania Twain was sufficiently impressed with his chops to hire Heatherly to play lead guitar for her first world tour and to appear with her on the 1997 Country Music Association awards show. His years of dedicated effort were rewarded. His take on country music with a surf-rock feel found its way to radio and TV, showing up on CMT, “Austin City Limits,” and “Grey's Anatomy.” Other laurels include receiving Music Row Magazine’s "Critic's Pick" award and being named in Playgirl Magazine as “sexiest singer.”
