Tributes to Johnny Cash & Waylon Jennings
David James and Big River are often described as one of the most authentic Outlaw Country tribute shows touring today. Thousands of fans agree with those reviews, as they routinely sell out shows in venues large and small across Canada and the U.S.
From the way James holds his guitar to the way he talks to his audience, the legendary musicians live again when James steps to the mic and says, "Hello - I'm almost Johnny Cash," or plays that classic leather bound Telecaster guitar like Waylon.
The professionalism on and off the stage is a testament to the memory of Cash and Waylon that fans have come to expect from David James and Big River.
The extensive catalog of songs from Cash like Folsom Prison Blues, A Boy Named Sue, and Ring of Fire and Waylon's mega hits like Luckenbach Texas, Good Hearted Woman, and Mammas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys, attracts audiences young and old alike to relive the music of these great country icons.
"It's not only about the voice," James said. "It's about living and breathing the men - their postures, their mannerisms, their moves and quirks. I want our audiences to go home feeling like they observed the men themselves".
Pairing Cash and Waylon is a natural fit, as they were best of friends and worked together throughout their careers. They recorded an album and notably performed alongside Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson as part of the super group The Highwaymen.
Together they invoke the sounds and image of another era, accurately recreating that classic sound, OUTLAW COUNTRY.
