He has also received the Billboard Century Award (1996), was ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (1998), and received the Billboard Latin Music Awards’ Lifetime Achievement honor (2009).  Among his many other honors, Rolling Stone has also cited Santana as #15 on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” Celebrating the chart debut of “Guitar Heaven” (Arista) in 2010, Santana joined the ranks of the Rolling Stones as the only musical act in chart history to score at least one Top 10 album in every decade beginning with the 1960s. On Dec. 8, Santana was the recipient of the 2013 Kennedy Center Honors Award.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Duane Dog Chapman, star of CMT’s Dog and Beth: On the Hunt and A&E’s Dog the Bounty Hunter will be appearing live at the Walton Arts Center on September 30th.

Considered one of the greatest bounty hunters in the world by many, this ex-con turned icon could easily be dubbed “The King of The Comebacks.” Credited with more than 10,000 captures throughout the course of his illustrious 40-year bounty hunting career, Dog continues to prove that people really do change.

Dog is the author of two best-selling books — Where Mercy Is Shown, Mercy Is Given and his memoir You Can Run But You Can’t Hide. The memoir debuted on the New York Times best-seller list in the No. 1 position where it remained for several weeks. It garnered great reviews for his candid honesty and detailed personal accounts of overcoming hardships and bettering oneself. When he’s not bounty hunting, Dog tours the country giving motivational speeches to crowds by the thousands and participates in the Make-A-Wish Foundation. He is the charity’s most requested celebrity and is the proud father of 12 children and 14 grandchildren.

Dog’s career as a bounty hunter gained national attention after catching infamous fugitive and Max Factor Cosmetics heir Andrew Luster who was wanted on 87 counts of rape. The infamy of Luster’s capture soon led to many high profile television appearances and later, the long-running reality series Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Now, having made bounty hunting his life’s work for close to four decades, Dog, his wife and business partner Beth and son, Leland, are back in their new series for CMT, Dog and Beth: On the Hunt, as they continue their tireless efforts in bringing the bad guys to justice and encouraging them to turn their lives around.
