Sherwin Linton presents

The Johnny Cash Story

In 1955, Johnny Cash’s first record was released on the Sun record label. One thousand miles from Memphis, Tennessee, in Watertown, South Dakota, 16-year-old Sherwin Linton was singing both sides of Johnny’s record on his own radio show. Sherwin learned virtually every Cash hit from then on and first met Cash in 1958. They became friends, and in 1971, Sherwin and his band “The Cotton Kings” recorded a best-selling album tribute to the Man in Black, “Hello I’m Not Johnny Cash.” Recorded inside the walls of the South Dakota State Penitentiary, this album became a best seller and Johnny featured Sherwin on his show many times. Sherwin continues to perform his award-winning No. 1 tribute to Johnny with his wife Pam and their band “The Cotton Kings.” The dynamic energy and Sherwin and Pam’s captivating stage presence will keep the audience spellbound from the opening of “Ghost Riders in the Sky” to the patriotic “Ragged Old Flag” and rockin’ closing duet “Going to Jackson.”
