Brandon Cash has been making music since he was a little boy.
The 38-year-old New York native favored artists like Buddy Holly.
But then his voice dropped, and “people said, (you should do) Cash,” he recalled.
That would be country music legend Johnny Cash.

Brandon Cash hasn’t looked back.
He’s bringing his Johnny Cash tribute show to The Roxy in Kennewick on July 24. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the show starts at 8:30 p.m.
Seating is limited. Tickets are $25. They’re available at www.ticketfly.com or at the door.
Brandon Cash said he connects with Johnny Cash’s music — that’s why he loves it. Like the other Cash, “I grew up very poor, on that bridge of having to fight and struggle to get where I am today,” he said. “All the way around, I can relate to (the music). That’s what it means to me.”
Brandon Cash performed and toured with Johnny Cash before “The Man in Black” died in 2003.
“He was a good man,” Brandon Cash said. “He was a simple man. He loved the road. He loved to travel. He especially loved meeting fans.”
During his tribute, Brandon Cash performs hits from Folsom Prison Blues to Ring of Fire, and also throws in some of his own songs, which are in the vein of Johnny Cash.
“I want people to come out and have a good time,” Brandon Cash said. “If you like Johnny Cash’s music, I’d say this is the show to come watch.”
The Roxy Bar and concert venue is at 101 W. Kennewick Ave., Suite 201.
