TR Dallas has toured and performed with some of the biggest names in Country Music such as Johnny Cash, Boxcar Willie, Don Williams and Foster & Allen. In 1981 he graced the stage at the Grand Old Opry in Nashville, and in 1987 he represented Ireland at the European Gold Star Awards in Holland where he came joint third with the world-famous group, The New Seekers.
