With your eyes closed, the Three Redneck Tenors could be the classically-trained, illegitimate sons of Luciano Pavarotti. But with those eyes opened, the Mullet-topped crooners are more a Jeff Foxworthy joke come to life through song. Its in these two polar opposite spheres -- the stiff world of opera and the loose, chew-in-the-cheek world of redneck -- that the Tenors thrive: lone participants in a genre all their own. So far, successes have included a Christmas tour and a brief spell on Americas Got Talent.
