Country music superstar Johnny Cash was a music industry legend for over half a century, with an instantly recognisable rich, deep voice and a barebones musical style.

The production captures Johnny looking back on his rise from humble beginnings on a dirt poor cotton farm... soaking up gospel and country music, the floods, hard work and a harsh, unloving father... to tough times on the Pontiac production line in Detroit, enlistment during the Korean war as a US airman, which took him to the honky tonk bars of Germany, where he began to hone his characteristic style and began writing his unique songs.. and on to his first marriage and rise as a music sensation and recording artist for the legendary Sun Records, alongside Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis.

The show strings together all Cash's greatest hits and signature tunes, as his fascinating, larger-than-life story unfolds, and woven through this rich musical journey is a fascinating glimpse into the darker side of his life, his drug taking, outlaw image and the Prison Concerts, and his epic, redeeming love story with lifetime soul mate June Carter, in her own right a child star of the famous country music icons 'the Carter Family'.
