One of Norway’s most popular and traveled country music singers, Arne Benoni, has entertained and continues to entertain his fans around the world. He has recorded and performed in Nashville, TN, including an appearance on the world-famous Grand Ole Opry. His smooth style is reminiscent of the late Jim Reeves and Arne is held in high esteem by Reeves’ fans.
Arne has released 19 albums, most of them recorded in Nashville. His recordings have found chart success in music industry magazines, Billboard and Cash Box, and in international charts.
Arne’s far-reaching success has resulted in appearances in numerous international markets. He appeared three times at London's prestigious Wembley Festival; made two appearances as a part of the Opry Spectacular concerts at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway; and appeared three times at the Norsk Høst Fest, the largest Scandinavian Festival in the world which is held in Minot, ND.
Arne has also been a hit on cruise ships making two European tours aboard the SS Norway and a tour of the Caribbean which was taped and shown nationwide several times by Norwegian Broadcasting. Arne was the only country act featured on the cruise.
In addition to performing on the Grand Ole Opry, Arne has appeared with Ralph Emery on his nationally televised program, Nashville Now, on The Nashville Network. He was a featured guest several times on the Ernest Tubb Midnight Jamboree.
Over the past years, Arne added Scotland, Germany, Switzerland, and Denmark to his touring schedule. One Denmark newspaper wrote the headline that describes the love of fans for Arne - “Arne Benoni melted a lot of hearts during his Denmark Tour.”
Arne Benoni recorded a new 12-song album in Nashville and released a CD on Universal Music that is aptly titled I’m Coming Home. According to Benoni, this album will not only offer country music fans a great collection of songs but will give them a fresh, new sound and new approach to his music.
It all starts with the song and I am proud to have written or co-written six of the songs, Benoni states.
