Roger Tibbs

By the time of his fourth tour of the US Midwest in the 2010s, New Zealand country singer and yodeller Roger Tibbs believed he was at last where he belonged. American audiences were fascinated by him, and he held in his hands a signed contract for his own headline residency in one of the biggest theatres in Branson, Missouri.

“I came out of that meeting with tears rolling down my cheeks,” Tibbs told AudioCulture. “I said to [wife] Denise, ‘We’ve done it. We’ve been knocking this thing for 30 years and here it is. We’ve got it in our hands. We have absolutely nailed it.’
