Ring of Fire debuted on Broadway on March 12, 2006. According to the critics, County music fans especially enjoy this musical revue. According to Lari, “I made my living as a theater actor before I got my record deal,” White recently told CMT Insider, “so it is in a way coming home on a bigger scale.”
