The very first album I ever owned was Live at Folsom Prison, a gift from my cousins. Johnny Cash was as big at the end of his life as he was at any time in his long and storied career. He influenced bands as diverse as Flogging Molly and U2 and today’s country singers. He was admired by every one.
In this video, he covers the song “Hurt” by Nine Inch Nails. The original Nails song is pretty good… Cash’s cover is great.
Monday morning and Johnny Cash… ain’t it great to be an American!
