Legendary rockabilly frontman and session player Billy Lee Riley died this summer and was honored with a benefit concert at the equally-legendary Silver Moon Club in Newport, Arkansas, which lies along the newly-dubbed Rock'n' Roll Highway.

Artists that performed at the show included many of his Sun Records labelmates as well as a host of other pioneers of rock music: Sonny Burgess and the Pacers, W.S. Holland (from Johnny Cash's and Carl Perkins' bands), Carl Mann ("Mona Lisa and "Pretend"), Ace Cannon ("Tuff"), Teddy Reidel ("Judy"), Larry Donn ("Honey Bunn"), Dale Hawkins ("Suzie-Q"), Ben "Cooter" Jones (TV's Dukes of Hazzard), Smoochy Smith (the Mar-Keys' "Last Night"), Travis Wammack ("Scratchy"), C.W. Gatlin (from Levon Helm's and Ronnie Hawkins' bands) and more.
