Johnny Cash Story
by Sherwin Linton

South Dakota native Sherwin Linton launched his career in the music business in 1956 as a 16 year-old disc jockey and live performer of country and rockabilly music on radio station KWAT in Watertown. Moving to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1958, this talented singer, guitarist and songwriter began performing throughout the country. Sherwin journeyed to Nashville in 1966 and recorded “Cotton King,” a song that catapulted him to the top of the Country charts. Following the 1971 release of a live tribute album, “Hello, I’m Not Johnny Cash,” Sherwin received multiple national nominations from the CMA and ACM and praise from Cash himself. Subsequent hits included the 1986 novelty song “Santa Got A DWI,” an anti-drunk driving song that hit the charts and became a million selling Christmas favorite. In 2011 Sherwin added to his prolific recording career with the release of a new CD “Hillbilly Heaven.” This duet CD paired him with many of his Grand Ole Opry and Country Music friends. This project was awarded the Rural Roots Music Commission – Traditional CD of the Year. “Hillbilly Heaven” has also garnered Sherwin three Grammy nominations. In 2012 Sherwin and his wife Pam released “Highway Headin’ South,” a CD with a theme featuring many Texas “South of the Border” flavored songs.

Sherwin’s show includes a talented group of musicians, and features his beautiful wife Pam, who lights up the stage singing the songs of June Carter and The Carter Family as Sherwin tells “The Johnny Cash Story.”
Sherwin is beyond being an imitator or parody of “The Man In Black.” With his in-depth knowledge of Cash’s life history and 60 career years of performing, it is no wonder Johnny Cash personally endorsed Sherwin to tell “The Johnny Cash Story.”

April 24 & 25 – 7 p.m.
