JACKSON – Johnny Cash fans of all ages will enjoy Jimmie Ray’s Black Train, a Tribute to the Life and Legend of Johnny Cash, coming Nov. 24 to Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort.
The show features Jimmie Ray as Johnny Cash and Cyndi Cantrell as June Carter, with their band Black Train, and starts at 7 p.m. in the Grand Oak Ballroom.
Tickets are on sale now. Dreamcatcher’s Club members can get discount tickets for just $20 each, only at the Casino Cage. Non-members tickets are $40, available online and at the Casino Cage. All tickets are general admission. You must be 21 or older to purchase tickets or attend the show.
The show opens with Jimmie Ray’s original song, “Black Train” which moves the audience to a musical journey back in time. Something magical takes place when the first notes of “Folsom Prison Blues” are heard and Jimmie begins, “I hear the train a comin’…” or, Cyndi delivers a heart rending version of June singing “Take the ribbon from my hair…”
Together, Jimmie and Cyndi kick into the always crowd pleasing “We got married in a fever....” The audience is taken back in time where they experience what they might have seen, felt or heard during an actual Johnny and June concert of the past.
This show is filled with the ageless music of Johnny and June and so much more. It is a musical journey from Johnny’s days in the Arkansas cotton fields up through and including the very last song he wrote and recorded, “Like the 309.” Other hits such as “Ring of Fire,” “Jackson,” and so many more performed during this show cover six decades of Johnny and June’s careers.
