Cash is primarily remembered as a country music artist; however his style spanned from gospel to folk, rock to blues, and country in between. Both critically and audience acclaimed, this show has been bringing audiences to their feet at large and small theaters around the country. The New York Post calls it "Effective, funny and imaginatively presented," "Ring of Fire is HOT!" declares Variety. "It's touching and exuberant," says the Associated Press.

Ring of Fire-The Music of Johnny Cash is created by Richard Maltby,Jr. and conceived by William Meade with orchestrations by Steven Bishop and Jeff Lisenby. Ring of Fire was originally produced on Broadway by William Meade, CTM Productions, and James B. Freydberg.

In developing the creative vision for the show, Maltby and Meade felt that "although we do not dramatize Johnny Cash's life, it was important, by the end of the show that the audience felt that they have spent the evening in the presence of an extraordinary and real man. Johnny wrote and sang about the lives we lead, regardless of where we lead them." Maltby states, "if, watching this show, you feel you are being drawn back to your roots, it's not accidental. I hope, as we bring to life these wonderful songs, we will touch your heart, mind and soul as well, and take you back to part of your life you may want to return turn to."
