The Highwaymen – a musical tribute to Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson

In 1984 Johnny Cash was taping a CBS Christmas special in Montreux Switzerland. His guests for the show besides June Carter Cash were Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and his wife Jessie Colter. The Highwaymen were born.  Never before in country music had a recording group of such country superstars existed. Waylon and Johnny (and June) are no longer with us but their music lives on…remembered and performed by look and sound alike impersonators Bob Gill and Jim Yorfido.

Both have successfully toured internationally performing to sold out shows and are said to be the best in the world at their craft of emulating their heroes Waylon and Johnny. Their appearance and vocals are so much like the original artists it is uncanny. They are joined by Willie Nelson impersonator Guy Melanson who lends his excellent vocal and instrumental talents to the show. These three are the Highwaymen road show and are backed by their excellent 5 piece band.

Remember such hits as Ring of Fire, On the Road Again and Good ol’ Boys to name a few.
