Chris Isaak's upcoming PBS special

"Beyond the Sun - Live!" is a new PBS special that showcases Chris Isaak in a personal tribute to the glory days of the legendary producer Sam Phillips, his Sun Studio in Memphis and the music created by his heroes (Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison and others).

Isaak recaptures the spirit of the original songs with his own brilliant band of stellar musicians, while revealing the heart and soul of his own deeply rooted musical identity. This special program premieres on PBS stations beginning June 2 (check local listings).

Taped on Feb. 13 before a live audience on the soundstage of Austin City Limits, the three act program begins with some of Isaak’s most popular hits, moves on to his tribute to Sun Records and then wraps up with a combination of both.

Joining Isaak for this special evening is Rock and Roll Hall of Fame singer and “Queen of Rockabilly,” Wanda Jackson. Isaak's "Beyond the Sun - Live!" tour will continue through the end of 2012. To learn more, visit
