Best Country Tribute Band 

John Todd and Shameless

Garth Brooks may have hung up his cowboy hat, but his country anthems live on with Cleveland's John Todd and Shameless. The seven good ol' boys in big ol' hats sing Garth's good ol' tunes the way they're meant to be sung: with 10-gallon voices and boot-stompin' vigor. Frontman John Todd is a ringer for Brooks: He nails the singer's Oklahoma drawl, sporting black duds and a headpiece mic to complete the effect. Backed by a pedal-steel guitar and a harmonica, Todd recreates tear-in-your-beer fiddle songs like "Much Too Young" and drinking tunes like "Two Pina Coladas." And if "Friends in Low Places" doesn't make you tip back a brew and holler along, you'd better check your pulse.
