Country music singer and recording artist Calvin Gilmore considers himself one of the luckiest people in the entertainment industry. One of the main reasons is that instead of having to live on a bus and travel most of the year, he gets to live at his home in Pawleys Island, SC and perform in his very own 2,200-seat state-of-the-art theater with concert lighting and sound in Myrtle Beach, SC.
For several years, Calvin performed regularly on the world-famous Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN.
The album, Better Late, was produced by legendary producer, Berry Beckett, and includes Nashville’s best studio session musicians.
In 1994, he created Country Music Spotlight, the only national television series ever to originate from SC. Along with Calvin and cast-members from The Carolina Opry, guest appearances were made by everyone from Merle Haggard to Chris Christopherson.
Calvin is the owner, producer, and director of the award-winning Carolina Opry, now in its unprecedented 35th season. Calvin and The Carolina Opry cast have performed to millions of fans and tourists over the decades. Calvin and The Carolina Opry have won every major South Carolina tourism and entertainment award including The Governor’s Cup, the state’s highest tourism award and was voted the State’s Most Outstanding Attraction.
