Studio Tenn Brings “The Cash Legacy” to Ryman Auditorium

Studio Tenn will continue the legacy of Johnny Cash. They have announced they are replacing the originally scheduled “The Loretta Legacy” with “The Cash Legacy: A Tribute to the Man in Black” on March 31 and April 1 at the historic Ryman Auditorium.

Artistic Director Matt Logan brings a new set and new cast to the Mother Church of Country Music, creating a “Cash Legacy” like you’ve never seen before.

“History can be found at a museum or in a biography, but our legacy series is much more than that,” Logan said. “This is an exploration through music; a tribute that allows us to bring the cultural arts of middle Tennessee to the surface while showing that Cash’s music and songwriting continues to live through each of us today.”

Unlike any other show, Studio Tenn’s legacy series brings accuracy to the personality, essence and story of each artist. Rhonda Ponessa, niece of Johnny Cash, commented on the uniqueness of “The Cash Legacy.”

“I was cautiously optimistic when first meeting with Studio Tenn about ‘The Cash Legacy,’” shares Ponessa. “As the hours went by, I could tell that they genuinely cared about telling the true story of a human being and not the story of a star. I’ve never seen any movie, musical or show bring the story of Uncle Johnny to life in such an authentic way.”

An all-star cast takes the stage of the Ryman Auditorium, showcasing the one-of-a-kind music of The Man in Black. “Always Patsy Cline” star Mandy Barnett and GRAMMY® Award winner Ashley Cleveland, along with many others, will be featuring the remarkable, and perhaps unexpected, relevance and versatility of Cash’s music.

Musical Arranger Don Chaffer will reimagine “The Cash Legacy” through updated arrangements of fan favorites such as “Ring of Fire,” “Walk the Line,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Sunday Morning Coming Down,” and countless more.

Cash’s sister, Joanne Cash Yates, also weighed in on “The Cash Legacy” and what the show means to her family. “I love that Studio Tenn really examined Johnny’s roots and never neglected his faith. ‘The Cash Legacy’ at the Ryman brings it all back full circle, which means the world to our family. I am grateful for their willingness to make my family stand out once again. Johnny would have loved it!”

Join us with the Cash family as we celebrate “The Cash Legacy: A Tribute to the Man in Black” on this historic stage Friday, March 31 and Saturday, April 1. Tickets can be purchased through the Ryman at or by calling (615) 889-3060. Previous ticket purchases for “The Loretta Legacy” will remain honored for the same date, time and seats.
