Best Johnny Cash Impression: 'Dallas Moore: Live at the Bullitt County Jail'

Best Johnny Cash Impression

While award-winning local Outlaw Country music hero Dallas Moore has certainly been influenced by the Man in Black (not many genuine Country artists haven’t), he’s far from a sound-alike copy of Johnny Cash. But Moore paid more subtle tribute to Cash in 2016 when he ventured to Kentucky’s Bullitt County and performed for prisoners at the Bullitt County Detention Center. The recordings were released as Dallas MooreLive at the Bullitt County Jail, a nod to Cash’s live At Folsom Prison, which is widely considered one of the best albums ever made. Moore took the Cash comparison one step further by enlisting as executive producer Bill Halverson, who assisted in the engineering of the Folsom record. Dallas Moore, dallasmoore.com.
