Premiering FRIDAY OCT 23 "I don't do it for the money"
Gary West's "For the Love of Cash" pays homage to Johnny Cash and the legends of country music with a show that is like no other. Gary West is NOT a Johnny Cash impersonator; he is an ENTERTAINER – as well as an impressionist, musician, songwriter, and comedian. The band is made up of some of the best in the business; legendary Nashville musicians that have played for dozens of country music legends and Grand Ole Opry stars.
“For the Love of Cash” is mesmerizing audiences across the country as one of the top billing tribute shows today and Gary West is lighting up stages with his own renditions of iconic songs plus his fresh, original music that is performed in the classic style.
On October 23, 2020 Gary's much anticipated original, "I don't do it for the money" (I do it for the love of Cash), will be released and available world-wide. This is the song behind the show and addresses the frequently asked question, "why do you play all this Johnny Cash music?"
