Conversations with Missy: Mark Alan Cash

by Missy Wolf / 2587 days ago / Comments

Nestled in the beautiful town of Bon Aqua, Tennessee, lies the Storytellers Museum. Once belonging to legendary music icon Johnny Cash, this recently renovated and fully restored building is now a museum paying tribute to Cash. Among the impressive collection of items on display, you will often see Mark Alan Cash performing on the very stage that his uncle played on years ago.

An artist in his own right, Mark has been writing and performing songs for many years like his uncle and also his father Tommy Cash. It is safe to say that music is in the "Cash" blood. There have been many performers that have come and gone through the years, yet there are only a few that have left behind a legacy that is bigger than the fame they had while they were alive. Of those few artists is Johhny Cash. 

Though fans may first attend the museum to pay tribute to the artist they love and adore, they soon find that the "Cash" name has brought them even more exquisite talent to listen to. As a regular performer at Storytellers, Mark Alan Cash has been entertaining countless fans with his extraordinary vocal ability that often resembles the baritone in Johnny's voice. 

Equally as talented as his uncle, Mark has become his own artist. Sharing stories of conversations he once had with his uncle Johhny, one can imagine how hard it must have been at times to follow those footsteps. The conversations he recalls have led to the penning of the brilliant song appropriately titled "Uncle Johnny". When listening to Mark sing, it is easy to hear the amount of passion he carries within him. 

Having the opportunity to speak with him about his music and his life was a moment I will never forget. I could have spoken to him all day. The stories he shared about his childhood with Carl Perkins, Robert Duvall, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Larry Gatlin, and more had me cracking up with laughter. He even shared a spectacular story that involved Chris Christopherson and a crazy landing with a helicopter.  You just cannot make this stuff up.

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
