Cold Hard Cash, a Johnny Cash Tribute, Ty Braddock, Derrick Harris
Rob Petrie’s knack for recreating Johnny Cash’s distinctive vocal style delights and astonishes his audiences. Cold Hard Cash was born at the request of the many fans who praised Petrie’s renditions of the one or two Cash classics he performs with his popular Washington, D.C., area bluegrass band, The Dixie Cannonballs. In the process of expanding his Cash repertoire, Petrie has developed a deep respect for Mr. Cash’s songwriting and performance abilities. While Cold Hard Cash features Cash classics, Petrie also enjoys performing material from the other greats of the era, including Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, George Jones, Hank Williams, and many more.
Ty Braddock has been honing his honky-tonk craft around the dimly lit clubs of the east coast region for the past several years now. It looks as if this past year could be the springboard he needed to jump into the mainstream lights where he belongs. His new CD (due out early ’04) entitled “Mr. Honky Tonk” features such stellar stars as Merle Haggard’s ace guitarist Redd Volkaert, recent Grammy nominee Bill Kirchen of Commander Cody fame, and Austin Texas pedal steel guitar master Ricky Davis to name a few. Ruthie Logsdon (Multiple WAMA award winning country female vocalist) also makes a duet appearance on the project.
