Cash, Drugs and a Swagman!


On the line from Oklahoma, this morning I spoke with Philip Bauer, the man who plays Johnny Cash in the Kings of Country tribute show.

When I was young my brother played Johnny Cash records, he is a character who has always intrigued me. There is just something haunting about his voice, and particularly, his work in his latter years. Amazingly honest about his own battle with demons, it was great to speak with Philip Bauer in the Breakfast Show this morning. Along with Willie Nelson and John Denver tribute artists, Philip and the Kings of Country tribute show comes to Brothers Cairns on 7 May. Check out details HERE. There's also a video about the show below.

Listen to Philip's very frank admissions and the real Johnny Cash version of Waltzing Matilda here:
