Walk the Line – A Tribute to Johnny Cash
Walk the Line – A Tribute to Johnny Cash
In 2005 a hot new biopic “Walk the Line”, the story of Johnny Cash brought the Man in Black back to the forefront of the entertainment industry. Gavan Rousseau’s likeness to Joaquin Phoenix, the actor who portrayed Cash in the film was certainly uncanny to say the least. Coupled with a deepening vocal range and encouragement from fellow musicians, Gavan was soon ready to hit the stage as Johnny Cash.

After having already performed as Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens, crowds were once again amazed at Gavan’s knack for emulating his idols’ voices, looks, and mannerisms so well.

Walk the Line is the stage version of many of Johnny Cash’s hit songs and is backed by a 4 piece band that is no stranger to the stage especially in the Country vein having been the first tribute to the Grand Ole Opry in Canada – Jukebox Jamboree.

From the Sun Record days all the way into the 1970’s, “Walk The Line: The Tribute” delivers the complete movie sountrack and more! You’ll see that train a comin’!
