Can't get enough of Johnny Cash

I have always been a casual fan of* Johnny Cash. Can't think of a song that I have ever heard him do that I did not like but I have never considered myself a huge fan until I saw the movie "Walk the Line" 3-4 months ago.

Now, I can't get enough of Mr. C. I have a bunch of* his stuff recorded on "Jukebox" and have rented* the DVD a couple of times to rewatch "WTL" at home.

Maybe it's because he and June Carter Cash are both dead and his work is now completed that I can fully appreciate his greatness.

Being a pretty big Willie Nelson fan sets me up to repeat the process when he is eventually boxed up and put away also.

Re: Can't get enough of Johnny Cash

I was always kind of the same way, WRT to Johnny Cash. I never was a country music fan, but I still liked him. I've heard a lot of people say that too, that even if they HATE country music, they still have an appreciation for Johnny Cash!

BTW, I caught an episode of "Little House on the Prairie" the other day that had both him and his wife in it.

Re: Can't get enough of Johnny Cash

Hey Micky, You struck a nerve.. I've been spending a good part of the week trying to work out Maybelle Carter's Guitar technique. She's June's mother.

Check out these videos of Johnny playing with the Carter Family:



And just the Carter Family

Anita Carter is gorgeous!

I've never been a big fan of Willie. He has a house nearby and drops in at the local pub (Charlie
s in Paia) once in awhile. A few years ago I saw him play an unannounced gig there. He was fantastic.

Thanks JB, neat clip. It looks like all of the girls just got new bras for the filming of the song. 8)

Re: Can't get enough of Johnny Cash

I saw Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash in a outdoor concert a number of years ago. They were great and I have always enjoyed his music since. Great movie too.
