James Garner's Tribute to Johnny Cash
It takes more than wearing black to be The Man in Black. But James Garner's soaked-in-bourbon baritone, soulful eyes and hard-won swagger all pay tribute to Johnny Cash in a way that simply astonishes. When Garner sings "Ring of Fire" or "Folsom Prison Blues" you can hear the crunch of Cash's gravelly voice and feel the rebellious spirit of the artist who forever changed not only country music, but folk, rock and pop. Backed by a live band that would have felt right at home at Sun Records or on the Opry stage, Garner replicates the same "boom-chicka-boom" sound pioneered by Cash, Luther Perkins, Marshall Grant and W.S. Holland. Hear hits like "I Walk the Line," "A Boy Named Sue" and "The Man Comes Around" live at Bal Theatre.
