Jackson Cash Tribute to "The Man in Black"

The Jackson Cash Tribute to ďThe Man in Black"

Jackson Cash performs his tribute to Johnny Cash from the heart, using his vocal and guitar talents to leave the audience hoping the show will never end.

He plays all of the Johnny Cash classics to perfection to include inserting paper into the fret board of his guitar like Johnny Cash did on early recordings to get a shuffle-like rhythm before drummers were widely used in country music.

He even dresses in brown for a few songs and explains why (early in his career Johnny Cash did not always dress in black) and explains Johnny Cash's transition to dressing in black.

Jackson Cash was blessed with a voice and the look of Johnny Cash. Jackson Cash sings so much like Johnny Cash that at times I thought I was listening to a CD.

I would glance back at Jackson, and of course it was Jackson singing and playing live.

The show is very fortunate to have the talent of Taria Lee Green on lead and backup vocals doing the June Carter Cash part.

Taria Lee Green is an incredibly talented singer and her dynamic with Jackson Cash is as close at it comes to actually seeing the great Johnny and June Carter Cash sing their songs.

In a moving part of the show Taria Lee Green sings Mother Maybelle Carter's favorite song, "Wildwood Flower", with only her on the autoharp.

As I watched her sing this perfectly on stage by herself, I thought, what a privilege this is to hear this gifted new generation country singer perform this song like Mother Maybelle Carter did.

It was a piece of Americana that leaves a lasting impression.

Jackson Cash is backed up by a superb band that has Cal Garner on bass, Randy Rudd on lead, and Taz on drums.

Together, the sound, feel, and mood of a Johnny Cash concert is captured to perfection.

This is a "don't miss" show.

I have to absolutely agree with this.

We usually see one show while in Branson and I'm so glad it was this one!!

It was worth every penny Jackson Cash talked about some new things to come in the production so we hope to see the show again during our next trip.

...This is a terrific show for everyone but if youíre a Johnny Cash fan itís a must see.

The first half of the show features the early Johnny Cash songs.

It reminded me of the days when I would put the 45ís on the phonograph and watch them turn as I listened to every word and that unique new sound back in the 1950ís.

This show includes several Cash songs that you just donít hear anymore; Donít Take Your Guns to Town, Get Rhythm, and others....

He and his whole cast are loaded with talent.

The second half ... includes songs like, Daddy Sang Bass, Sunday Morning Cominí Down, A Boy Named Sue, etc.

Taria Lee Green is the perfect selection for the role of June Carter Cash.

She has a strong, sweet voice and is a great entertainer in her own right.

Her interaction with Jackson during their duets and in between songs gives an authentic portrayal of the couple as they appeared on stage.

Taria sang Wildwood Flower solo on stage with only her autoharp.

This was a classic number especially for fans of the Carter Family.

Carl Garner on the upright bass and backup vocals, Taz the Drummer, and Randy Rudd on lead guitar and vocals, make up the rest of the cast producing the genuine Johnny Cash sound.

These guys are top-notch entertainers who bring a wealth of experience to the show.

It has all the ingredients for a long successful run and should be on your

ďMust See ListĒ.

Although he has not seen the show, based on what heís read here he will. There were no negative comments or reviews posted on this show.

Don't go see Jackson Cash. I saw him in WalMart one day and he was on some type of drug, possibly speed or cocaine. He could barely hold still and smelled of alcohol.

I will never go see this show.

I just saw Jackson Cash perform February 17, 2008 at the Church of the Nazarene in Morrilton, Arkansas. He had played at the Rialto in Morrilton the night before.

During his performance in church he stated that he was a drug addict and Alcoholic and that by the grace of God and his two friends that were in his band he was staying drug and alcohol free.

He sure can sing like Johnny Cash!

Last week my wife and I saw Jackson Cash at the Sahara in Las Vegas. We were amazed at how much he looked and sounded like Johnny Cash. He is a true gentleman. He was sober and only drank water. I can not wait to see him again. We are planning future trips around his performances.

We met Jackson Cash when he was plain old Jack Quist back in 2003 at Ruby's Inn, UT. He was doing the old Wandering Cowboy Minstrel thing back then to earn an honest Dollar. His voice and guitar playing were superb and he was nice to speak to as well. I'm not surprised he's gone on to be more famous and hope he is on TV more.
