Johnny Cash was one of the most influential and talented singers of all time. For one night in May at the Sydney Opera House, Australia's country music stars will perform his greatest hits in a special tribute concert.

Since his earliest songs in the 1950s including Folsom Prison Blues and I Walk The Line, Johnny Cash has sold over 90 million album and become a music icon. His life story and the emotion in his lyrics have fascinated people usually avoiding country music. The issues of alcoholism, divorce, a fractured relationship with his father and the eventual peace as he married the charismatic singer, June Carter, have infused his music with a truth that still endures, decades after the albums were released.

His compelling story featured as a successful biopic, "Walk the Line", in 2006 with Joaquin Phoenix and Reese Witherspoon. The romantic chemistry between Joaquin and Reese mirrored the relationship of Johnny and June, his redemptive love. The popularity of the film and his music led to another Grammy award winning album the film's soundtrack. Watch the trailer here:



The film connected with a new generation of fans and inspired a tribute show, now in its 10th year. In this single show in Sydney, Golden Guitar (the prestigious Australian country music award) winners Daniel Thompson and Camille Te Nahu will create the same romantic energy we felt when Johnny and June performed those same duets.
