Trent and I have worked hard arranging and recording a fresh badge of Johnny and June Cash duets. We are headed to Little Rock to perform the songs live while the Arkansas ballet performs live. We originally did the ballet in Nashville a couple of years ago with our local company and now we are taking it on the road! Check out our recordings and live sessions on Spotify, iTUNES, or Amazon. If you need a good exuse for a road trip, join us this weekend in Little Rock. Tickets here.
Excited to say out loud that I am working on a new solo album! Been hanging with friends and writing and absorbing all things to try and gather what it is I need to say. Cut 4 so far ... 6 to go!
My band Sugar + The Hi-Lows are back teaming up with the Nashville Ballet for the 2016-2017 season! Mark your calendars for February 9-12, 2017!

Live music performed by Sugar + The Hi-Lows
Music by Johnny Cash, Amy Stroup and Trent Dabbs
Sergeant Early’s Dream choreography by Christopher Bruce

Smash hit Under the Lights returns after its 2014 premiere to pay tribute the iconic life and legacy of Johnny Cash with Nashville’s own Sugar + The Hi-Lows. Offering a glimpse into the origins of modern day country, Sergeant Early’s Dream is a collection of vignettes depicting the immigration experience from Europe to America in the 19th century set to early folk music. With this bold combination of contemporary dance and live music, Nashville Ballet shows off its edgier side with a little Attitude.
Attitude will be at TPAC's Polk Theater for four (4) performances:
- Thursday, February 9, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
- Friday, February 10, 2017 7:30 p.m.
- Saturday, February 11, 2017 7:30 p.m.
- Sunday, February 12, 2017 at 2:00 p.m.
