For the past 15 years, Garner and his band have faithfully recreated Cash’s biggest hits with stunning accuracy in this not-to-be missed musical event. From special concert airings on PBS stations to shows at Folsom and San Quetin Prisons, it’s easy to see why this is the premier tribute to the “Man in Black.” The show is a fun, toe-tapping trip down memory lane honoring Johnny Cash’s life and music, and the boom-chicka-boom sound of his longtime backing band, the Tennessee Three. Enjoy all the hits of the Man in Black – “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Ring of Fire,” “I Walk the Line,” and more!
Garner and his band have performed more than 500 professional shows, including a special concert at Folsom State Prison in 2008 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Cash’s infamous live album recorded behind prison walls. Gene Beley, one of two reporters in Cash’s entourage at the historic 1968 Folsom Prison concert, says this about Garner and his show – “Garner and his band give concertgoers their money’s worth. This act will not disappoint the people who wish to resurrect that classic Johnny Cash voice and rhythm.”
In addition to performing across the United States, Garner’s group has released three full-length albums, making them the most recorded and published Johnny Cash tribute show in the nation.
For Garner, the love of Johnny Cash music started at an early age. “I started listening to Johnny Cash when I was about 12 years old. The first song I heard by him was ‘Don’t Take Your Guns To Town’ and I was hooked. A few years later I saw the Man in Black in concert and got to meet him backstage following the show. Shaking hands with Johnny Cash is something I’ll never forget.”
