Tribute to Johnny Cash to Hold Encore Engagement at Jerry’s Nugget Casino

November 14, 2009 by  

Jerry’s Nugget Casino honors “The Man in Black” with a encore performances of Tribute to Johnny Cash on Saturday, Dec 12, 2009, in its Royal Street Theater with shows at 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.

The 90-minute show features Jimmie Ray & the Ring of Fire with Jimmie Ray starring as Johnny Cash and Cyndi Cantrell as June Carter, with special guest appearance by Tom Flagg as Willie Nelson. Something magical happens when the first notes of “Folsom Prison Blues” are heard and Ray begins, “I hear the train a comin’….” The same emotion is felt as Cantrell delivers a heart-rending version of Carter singing, “Help Me Make it Through the Night.” Together, Ray and Cantrell break into the always crowd pleasing, energetic classic “Jackson.” The show is a musical journey from Cash’s days in the Arkansas cotton fields through the very last song he wrote and recorded, “Like the 309.”

Each show will present some of Cash’s greatest hits in addition to a featured genre – the 3 p.m. show is the Johnny Cash Country Show with emphasis on the grass roots music Cash and Carter both wrote and recorded. The 6 p.m. show is the Johnny Cash Rockabilly Show with emphasis on the dark and bad boy music Cash was at times known for. Each show will also close with a collection of well-known holiday songs as done by Cash, Carter and Nelson.

Guests must be 21 years and older to attend and the cover is $10 with a two-drink minimum. Tickets are can be purchased in advance at the More Club Gift Shop beginning Monday, Nov. 16 and are also available at the door on a first come, first served basis and based on venue capacity.
