Johnny Cash was popular with every generation and revered as a musician and a man. The word iconic is much abused these days… but for Cash, the word is totally appropriate.
Any list of top 10 songs of all time has to include a live version of Johnny Cash doing “Folsom Prison Blues.” There are not enough superlatives in the English language to describe how great Johnny Cash was… and this is the definitive Cash song.
This clip is from his performance at San Quentin Penitentiary. What better way to start a cold January morning than this song from the Man in Black.
