In town for just two performances, Ring of Fire: The Johnny Cash Musical opens tonight at Suffolk Theater in Riverhead, and we expect it will be a rip-roarin’, honky-tonkin’, story-tellin’ good time.
The show, which uses Cash’s music to tell his life story onstage, is obviously a must-see for fans of the Man in Black, but it might be even more important to see for those rare folks who know little about the country music legend or his incredible catalogue of music.
To celebrate the event and what would have been Cash’s 83rd birthday—he was born February 26, 1932 and died September 12, 2003—we’ve put together a Spotify playlist of 10 essential Johnny Cash songs everyone should know and love. Please enjoy below.
If you’re able, check out Ring of Fire: The Johnny Cash Musical at Suffolk Theater in Riverhead (118 Main Street, Riverhead) tonight at 8 p.m. or Saturday, February 28 at 8 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. on both nights and tickets are $49 each.
