Little Big Town, Cam Set for YouTube’s First Cash Fest
Little Big Town and Cam will be taking the stage at YouTube's first-ever Cash Fest in Nashville. The event, in honor of late country legend Johnny Cash, is set for the War Memorial Auditorium on Nov. 10 at 8PM ET.
In addition to LBT and Cam, Midland, Devin Dawson, Grace Potter, Elle King, Cage the Elephant and Judah & the Lion, among others, will take the stage during Cash Fest. Those who attend the event will get a sneak peak of YouTube's new documentary about the singer, which is slated to premiere the following day (Nov. 11).
Tickets for the first-ever Cash Fest are available now. Prices start at $41.50 for general admission seating. The event is charity based, with proceeds from ticket sales going to benefit the MusiCares foundation, the mission of which is to help fellow musicians in their time of need.
The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash, a new YouTube Originals documentary, is based around "recently discovered archival materials and interviews with family and celebrated collaborators," as well as Cash's 'artistic victories, the personal tragedies, the struggles with addiction, and the spiritual pursuits' that drove his life," according to Billboard. The documentary was directed by acclaimed filmmaker Thom Zimney, who is best known for his work with rock legend Bruce Springsteen and his landmark Springsteen on Broadway film.
