If you haven’t heard, there are only two performances left of Studio Tenn’s The Cash Legacy!
Here is why you should see The Cash Legacy before the show ends.
It’s a theatrical Concert which means there is no dialogue or narrative.
The show displays the incredible diversity of Cash’s musical career crossing over several genres.
Songs heard throughout the production have significant meaning to Cash’s career.
You will hear the song that launched Cash’s career in 1955, “Cry, Cry, Cry.”
Cash’s first number one country hit – “Walk the Line”
Cash’s First Grammy Awarded Song – “Folsom Prison Blues”
Classic Cash song “Ring of Fire” written by June Carter and Merle Kilgore was recorded first by June’s sister, Anita as Love’s (Ring of Fire) but Cash had a dream about recording with a mariachi band. A departure from the norm but history in the making.
The number #1 country song of 1969 -“Daddy Sang Bass” was written by Carl Perkins, regular on the Johnny Cash show, with a few lines borrowed from the Carter family song “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.”
“A Boy Named Sue” written by a poet, Shel Silverstein. One of Cash’s biggest hits spending five weeks on the top of the country chart.
An outstanding cast of Jake Bradley, Garrett Buell, Griffin House, Jared Manzo, Sara Jean Kelley, Laura Matula, Caitlin Nicol-Thomas, Patrick Thomas, Carrie Tillis, and Matt Haeck.
You don’t want to be that person who says, “Oh I missed that production, I hope they will record an album.”
There is speculation there will be an album from this production. On the Studio Tenn Facebook page they featured a video of Laura Matula in the recording studio singing ” Give My Love to Rose.” At this point, it is only speculation, so don’t think you can just get the album after the fact because there may not be one.
And then there is this review -“These singers and musicians are incredibly talented! I enjoyed every song and its unique presentation. This production is proof that Johnny’s music still reaches the young fans as well as the life long fans. The respect that was shown to our family and our humble roots moved me. I think Johnny would have been proud, just as I was. Thank you Studio Tenn!” – JOANNE CASH (sister of Johnny Cash)
But wait, there is one more-“I love to be entertained! And that’s exactly what happened last Saturday night when some good friends took our group to Studio Tenn in Franklin to see The Cash Legacy performance. It was spectacular!!! Yes, it was Johnny Cash’s songs but the arrangements were different enough that made them almost like brand new songs. Yet they still carried the legacy of Johnny Cash right along with every note. All the performers were so talented and took you on an emotional journey of the man in black’s songs. If you missed this production, join me in hoping they bring it back so more folks can enjoy it as much as I did. Congrats to everyone involved!! Way to go!!!”
