The late, great Johnny Cash knew a thing or two about attitude — recall that iconic photo of him flipping the bird. So it seemed only fitting that his music was the focus of Nashville Ballet’s recent Attitude dance series. The company’s annual winter series has attracted a loyal following for its adventurous mix of live music and cutting-edge dance. Choreographer Christopher Stuart’s tribute to the Man in Black featured such iconic songs as “Ring of Fire,” “Walk the Line” and “God’s Gonna Cut You Down.” Sugar & the Hi-Lows vocalists Trent Dabbs and Amy Stroup gave rollicking performances.
