As a singer, he has been voted three times the Entertainer of the Year and Male Performer of the Year by the Western Music Association received the Will Roger Award from the Academy of Western Artists.

’Tenants’ opens March 15 Tom Misuraca's "Tenants" opens Friday night at the Beekay Theatre with performances every weekend through March 31. According to Ruthanne Jennings of the Tehachapi Community Theatre, the show is ready to go with a set that has a welcoming, warm feel to it, as that of a home. Van Roberts once again has given the Tehachapi Community Theatre another great set for the actors to blend their characters on with ease, she said. Director Tom Misuraca and Shanan Harrell, along with the entire cast will be available after the opening night performance on March 15 to share their backstage secrets and talk about whatever audience members may wonder about. Michael Gruett plays Arlo Cuthbirt, the apartment manager, and Monica Nadon plays Desdemona Christmas, a long lost soap opera star who chronically confuses her past character with the reality of today. The cast also includes Ashley Rasmussen, Garret Lawrence, Heather Ringle, Rick Gould and Spencer James.
