Press Release

In September 1954 John Ray Cash walked into Sun studios, Memphis to record his first single, ‘Hey Porter’. A little over two minutes of freight train rhythms would be the start of an incredible career that lasted until Johnny’s death in 2003, aged 71. Richard Diaz (Johnny Cash) and Lizzy Rushby (June Carter), backed by a full band bring you a distillation of the career of one of the biggest names in country music. The show features stories, images, soundscapes and video set to a playlist of the best of Cash and Carter, including Carter family bluegrass, 50 years of the famous Folsom Prson recording, and the magnificent American Recordings series of albums, which brought Johnny back to a new generation of fans.
Touring the UK and beyond, the show is a must for fans of Johnny Cash and June Carter, and country music. Book now to enjoy the soul of country music that is, ‘Cash and Carter, Together’.
