Get ready for an electrifying tribute to the iconic love story of Johnny Cash and June Carter! Starring Charles Evans Jr. as Johnny Cash and Caitie Grady as June Carter, “Because You’re Mine” brings to life the timeless hits that defined a generation.

From the legendary duets like “Jackson” and “Long Legged Guitar Pickin’ Man” to Johnny Cash’s chart-toppers such as “Folsom Prison Blues” and “Ring of Fire”, this celebration of the extraordinary legacy of these beloved artists will have you singing along and dancing in your seats.

Charles Evans Jr. channels the Man in Black himself, delivering the deep, resonant vocals that made Johnny Cash a legend and Caitie Grady’s vibrant energy and pitch-perfect renditions will transport you back to a time when June Carter dazzled audiences worldwide.
