David James and Big River are often described as one of the most authentic Outlaw Country tribute shows touring today. Thousands of fans agree with those reviews, as they routinely sell out shows in venues large and small across Canada and the U.S.


From the way James  holds his guitar to the way he talks to his audience, the legendary musicians live again when James steps to the mike and says, “Hello – I’m almost Johnny Cash," or plays that classic leather bound Telecaster guitar like Waylon.  


The professionalism on and off the stage is a testament to the memory of Cash and Waylon that fans have come to expect from David James and Big River.

The extensive catalog of songs from Cash like Folsom Prison , Boy named Sue and Ring of Fire and Waylons mega hits like Luckenback Texas , Good hearted woman and Mammas dont let your babys grow up to be cowboys , attracts audiences young and old alike to relive the music of these great country icons.

"Its not only about the voice ," James said. "Its about living and breathing the men - Their postures ,Their mannerisms ,Their moves and quirks .I want our audiences to go home feeling like they observed the men themselves .

James is succeeding
