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.”
