Johnny Cash was born in 1932 in Arkansas. His family owned a farm, and Johnny Cash spent his youth listening to folk songs and hymns from his mother and work songs from neighboring field hands and laborers from the train yards. Cash enlisted in the U.S. Air Force after graduating high school. After his discharge from the Air Force in 1954, Cash went to Memphis and signed with Sun Records. His first single "Hey Porter" was impressive but did not rank on the music charts. His subsequent release of "Cry, Cry, Cry" was ranked No. 14 on Billboard's Top 20, and further singles were even more successful.
Johnny Cash went on to have a very successful career and was relevant at every stage of his life. He died in 2003 after releasing a final album American IV: The Man Comes Around in that same year and winning three CMA awards. The Johnny Cash Tribute show is all about bringing the unique music style and lyrics of Johnny Cash to today's audience in a respectful yet fun reenactment.
