The Show

With his striking resemblance, spot on mannerisms and baritone voice, Shawn Barker embodies the character and spirit of Johnny Cash.

Shawn Barker’s Tribute to Johnny Cash is an accurate and energetic recreation of an american music icon. Whether it’s the full theater show with a professional band, the female singing group, The Sugarbelles, paying tribute to the Carter Sisters and Jessica Morales singing as June Carter. Or the raw, stripped down three piece retro group, The Folsom Prison Blues Boys, the shows are bringing the legend back to life onstage for the fans of today and the next generation.

A legend bought back to life… Shawn Barker is exceptional!

Why I Do It

When you love music as much as I do and people love Johnny Cash as much as they do there really isn’t much of a choice. I do what I do so people can continue to enjoy the music of Johnny Cash over and over again. For me there is no beating a live show and since we cannot see Johnny live anymore I am proud to be celebrating his music each and every time I go on stage.

As one of his greatest fans I am as loyal to his music as the next Johnny Cash Lover. Johnny’s music has feeling and thats something you get best from a live show.
