With his striking resemblance, spot on mannerisms and baritone voice, Shawn Barker embodies the character and spirit of Johnny Cash.

Shawn Barker’s Tribute to Johnny Cash is an accurate and energetic recreation of an American music icon. Whether it’s the full theater show with a professional band, the female singing group paying tribute to the Carter Sisters and Jessica Morales singing as June Carter. Or the raw, stripped down three piece retro group, the shows are bringing the legend back to life onstage for the fans of today and the next generation.

Shawn Barker was born and raised in the metro St. Louis area where like most entertainers, Shawn’s first experience with music was attending church with his family. From singing in church, playing drums in the school marching band or singing in cover bands and coffee houses, music and entertainment has always been in Shawn’s blood.

In 2004, Shawn auditioned for the part of Elvis Presley in the broadway production of, “Million Dollar Quartet”. The director Floyd Mutrux, (“Dick Tracy” & “American Hot Wax”) recognized Shawn’s unique talent and requested Shawn to submit an audition for the part of Johnny Cash. Shawn agreed and was instantly cast in the part with Mutrux saying, “We have 100 people who can play Elvis, but we only have one that can play, Johnny Cash.”

Since then, Shawn has performed his unmatchable tribute to Johnny Cash all over the world touring in Australia, Europe, Canada and across the United States.
