Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) July 15, 2008 -- Desert Road Publishing is pleased to announce the July 25 launch of David Miguel Estrada's âYou Ain't No Johnny Cash.â To purchase or preview the play visit [http://www.desertroadpublishing.com] or http://www.davidmiguelestrada.com.
âYou Ain't No Johnny Cash" is the story of Cody Luther, an aging country singer who cut short his career in the 1980's and left for Mexico after his wife cheated on him with Willie Nelson. Luther moves back to his hometown of Lubbock, Texas, where he reconnects with his ex-wife, Diana May, eventually rekindling the romance they once had. After a brawl over a jukebox song, Cody is forced to attend court-appointed therapy sessions. Does he actually suffer from clinical depression or is he just a lonely old country singer?
Show Business Weekly hails Estrada as a âmaverick writer-actor-director.â NewYorkCool.com describes him as âmulti-talented.â "Very good" writes the Albuquerque Journal while the Austin-American Statesman calls Estrada's work â...engaging throughout.â
The playwright has had seven New York productions of his plays including his solo piece "Reflections," which was performed at Lincoln Center. His last production, âGod, Man, & Stanâ premiered in Los Angeles and is also slated to be published later this year.
Estrada explains, "The main character, Cody Luther, is an old-school country singer in the vein of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, or Merle Haggard. The only difference is that he drops off the scene. What resonated with me about this story was the idea of a popular country singer bowing out at the very peak of his career."
