Have you ever imagined experiencing ALL of Johnny’s iconic songs in concert just the way you remembered them? From the early days with Sam Philips at Sun Records to the later years with Rick Rubin and American Recordings, Cash Unchained delivers a complete catalog of breathtaking music from one of the greatest country artists of all time. Experience it LIVE for one night only!
Johnny Cash may not have been the greatest singer or musical technician, but his sound was unforgettable. Steady like a train, sharp like a razor, with the perfect blend of country, rock ‘n’ roll, and folk music, Cash paved the way for artists of all genres for years to come. Without Johnny Cash, we wouldn’t have some of the music we’ve all enjoyed over the past 6 decades. Performed by some of the finest musicians in the state of Virginia, James Tamelcoff captures Cash’s trademark baritone voice, while his band delivers the infectious, driving rhythm of the Tennessee Three.
The group has sold-out theatres across the southeast, including the legendary House of Blues. They will entertain you with Cash’s greatest hits including “Folsom Prison Blues”, “Ring of Fire”, “Walk the Line”, and many more. You will also hear songs from the end of Cash’s career including his final hit “Hurt” written by Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails).
