“Cashback” is a Birmingham-based cover band that plays a wide range of classic Johnny Cash songs spanning “the Man in Black’s” 51-year career. The band has great respect for the legendary country music singer. Each member of Cashback is dedicated to giving the best possible performance each time the band takes the stage.

“Cry! Cry!” in 1955 was Johnny Cash’s first hit. It sold 100,000 copies in the Southern states alone and helped to launch his career. He kicked off a co-headlining tour with Elvis as a result of the success of that song and the Johnny Cash was introduced to the world.

In 1963, Johnny Cash released what would become the biggest hit of his career: “Ring of Fire.

“Cashback” on Friday, May12, is free and all fans of “The Man in Black” will want to be there, Camwell said.
