7 February 2017 - FRANKLIN, Tenn. - Studio Tenn will continue the legacy of Johnny Cash. They have announced they are replacing the originally scheduled "The Loretta Legacy" with “The Cash Legacy: A Tribute to the Man in Black” on March 31 and April 1 at the historic Ryman Auditorium.
Artistic Director Matt Logan brings a new set and new cast to the Mother Church of Country Music, creating a “Cash Legacy” like you've never seen before. “History can be found at a museum or in a biography, but our legacy series is much more than that,” Logan said. “This is an exploration through music; a tribute that allows us to bring the cultural arts of middle Tennessee to the surface while showing that Cash’s music and songwriting continues to live through each of us today.”
Unlike any other show, Studio Tenn’s legacy series brings accuracy to the personality, essence and story of each artist. Rhonda Ponessa, niece of Johnny Cash, commented on the uniqueness of “The Cash Legacy.”
“I was cautiously optimistic when first meeting with Studio Tenn about 'The Cash Legacy,'” shares Ponessa. “As the hours went by, I could tell that they genuinely cared about telling the true story of a human being and not the story of a star. I’ve never seen any movie, musical or show bring the story of Uncle Johnny to life in such an authentic way.”
