In the spring of 1955 Johnny Cash walked into the legendary Sun Recording Studios in Memphis, Tennessee. The music world was never the same. In June 2003, we took the “Train of Love” tribute to Nashville for a couple of performances. Cash’s brother and sister, attended the show and came away impressed.
Tommy Cash stated, “My Brother would be proud”
Yates commented, “It’s a wonderful show, I would recommend it to anyone” and “you don’t impersonate my brother, you pay tribute to him with honor”
That was the greatest endorsement we could get … his brother and sister
enjoying the show. That was a great boost to our confidence. We came
away from Nashville saying, we must have gotten something right.
“Train of Love” sprang from my appreciation and love, not only for the music of Johnny Cash, but for the man himself. A champion of the underdog, a voice for those who often have none, an “outlaw” before it became fashionable.
If you come away from this presentation with a better understanding of who Johnny Cash is, I will have succeeded in my vision for this endeavor.
Enjoy the Ride
