Greg Rowles has spent most of his life on stage and in front of a camera. He grew up in a musical family performing with his Mom, Dad, brother, cousin, and aunt where he honed his skills as a vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. He entertained for three years at Opryland USA, and that is when Ed McMahon came calling, giving Greg a spot on the legendary show, “Star Search”. Greg appeared on that broadcast for nine weeks and was named “Male Vocalist of the Year”. In 2000, he made the move to Myrtle Beach where Greg began starring at The Alabama Theatre. After 22 seasons, he stepped away to pursue other opportunities including performing his one-man shows at small venues on the Grand Strand.
Throughout his esteemed career, Greg has entertained at the Vatican in Rome, Italy for three years at the request of James Nicholson, the U.S. Ambassador to The Holy See. James also served President George W. Bush as Secretary of Veteran Affairs. Greg also performed numerous times as a solo artist on the world-famous Grand Ole Opry stage.
Greg has added the title of “Award Winning Broadcaster” to his long list of awards recognized by the National Motorsports Press Association. You can see his work daily on WFXB FOX TV anchoring “Carolina am”, and “Not the News”. In 2020, Greg was inducted into the South Carolina Entertainment & Music Hall of Fame where he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Carolina Country Music Association.
Greg is also known throughout the Grand Strand for his philanthropic involvement volunteering with many organizations that he will continue with the LEGACY Theatre. Greg proudly served over 14 years in a Christian ministry as a music pastor.
Currently, Greg and Brandee, his bride of 31 years, are enjoying their family time with children, Courtney, Grayson, Ashton, and four grand puppies. Spend just a few minutes with Greg, and you will find out quickly that his faith and family are the most important things in his life. “God first, family second, and everything else after that is just icing on the cake.”
Greg & Brandee are so very grateful to God to be embarking on this new chapter of their lives with this new venue. They wish to extend their deepest gratitude for attending and becoming part of the LEGACY family.
