Weatherford Democrat

— Tommy Cash, the brother of “The Man in Black,” will perform Saturday at Texas Opry Theater, paying tribute to the late and great Johnny Cash.

The show is set for 3 p.m. at the theater located at 315 York Ave. in downtown Weatherford.

The lights dim on stage, and the unmistakable strum of the lead guitar begins pounding out a familiar melody. Suddenly Tommy Cash’s seasoned voice starts to sing the words to the hit song “Big River.”

The energetic and always entertaining Cash captivates his audience’s attention as they travel down memory lane, Johnny Cash-style, capturing the career of the award-winning songwriter whose musical career spanned more than 40 amazing years.

Tommy Cash, along with The Amazing Made In Texas Show Time Band, will perform all of the hit songs and medleys in this show, taking the audience on a nostalgic trip back to the early Sun Record years on through the chart-topping hit records of the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s all the way to Johnny Cash’s last hit, “Hurt.”

Tommy Cash has had 19 hits of his own in the top 20 charts, including “Six White Horses,” “That  Certain One” and “I Recall A Gypsy Woman.”

Cash said he will never forget growing up in Northeast Arkansas, the youngest of seven children.

“I remember Mama and Daddy working long hours to provide for us and give us a good Christian home. Most of all I remember a whole lot of love. My brother, Johnny, and I were the only two who made a career in the music business and I’m proud to do a special tribute to my brother, the legendary Johnny Cash, in every show I perform.”
