“The Cold Hard Cash Show” Fades To Black
Montana's Johnny Cash tribute band has been put out to pasture.
If you've followed the news you know that recently The Cold Hard Cash Show's drummer, Felipe "Fel" Torres of Missoula, was charged with misdemeanor assault in an incident with a girlfriend. At the time it raised questions about the future of the band.
The Cold Hard Cash Show played around the country - bars, festivals, theaters - even gracing the stage of "The Late Show" with Dave Letterman.
Earlier this week, Merle Travis Peterson, the front man for The Cold Hard Cash Show, posted to social media that the end has come. His post mentioned that he's a single father of a 12 year old and being on the road for weeks at a time has been a challenge. He wrote, "After 13 years this long train ride has come to an end. I got off at the last station and I picked up my bags, and we all went our separate ways."
The Cold Hard Cash Show formed in 2005. Over they years they've shared stages with Eric Church, Charlie Daniels, Lonestar, and more.
