Concert Series in the Park: Gary West’s “For the Love of Cash” (Johnny Cash & Legends Tribute)
February 26 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
The next show of this season’s FREE Concert Series in the Park (at beautiful and scenic Sims Park) continues with a musical act already familiar to Sims Park; we welcome Gary West and his band back to New Port Richey for another round of great country music from many of the legends including Johnny Cash!
Gary West’s “For the Love of Cash” pays homage to Johnny Cash and the legends of country music with a show that is like no other. Gary West is NOT a Johnny Cash impersonator; he is an ENTERTAINER – as well as an impressionist, musician, songwriter, and race car driver. The band is made up of some of the best in the business; legendary Nashville musicians that have played for dozens of country music legends and Grand Ole Opry stars.
“For the Love of Cash” is mesmerizing audiences across the country as one of the top billing tribute shows today and Gary West is lighting up stages with his own renditions of iconic songs plus his fresh, original music that is performed in the classic style.
The latest album, Heroes, Friends & Legends, dropped on May 10, 2019. An exciting video was released on September 13, 2019, for the single “One Piece at a Time”, an iconic Johnny Cash song which was The Man in Black’s last #1 hit.
The majority of the video for “One Piece at a Time” was filmed at Johnny Cash’s farm, which is now Storytellers Hideaway Farm and Museum.
On Feb 23, 2019 Gary West released a duet with country music legend Leona Williams. The release of the Cash/Carter classic “Jackson” earned them 8 months on the NDX singles chart and two months at the #1 spot! They also released a video for the song that has gained international attention.
On October 23, 2020 Gary’s much anticipated original, “I don’t do it for the money” (I do it for the love of Cash), was released and available world-wide. This went to #1 on the Independent charts for the month of February 2021. This is the second #1 song for Gary off of his latest album.
Now, Gary has a hot new single that was released on March 26th, 2021 from a brand new upcoming album.
His new single “Pretty Close to Nothin’ will no doubt be another #1 song!
This concert is sponsored by the New Port Richey Parks and Recreation Department.
