Johnny Cash At San Quentin On Today’s Double
"The Man In Black" leads off today's "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m. with the number one country song on this day in 1969, "A Boy Named Sue". What could have been a quick novelty song became a memorable story as told by Johnny Cash, with the backdrop of a live audience of inmates at San Quentin State Prison in California.
Here's a video of Johnny Cash performing "A Boy Named Sue" live at San Quentin State Prison, in 1969. This performance was recorded and released as the hit single (with a word bleeped).
