During Tuesday's (March 26) Blind Auditions for Season 4 of 'The Voice,' quirky and undeniably talented duo Midas Whale offered up their accordion and acoustic guitar-laden rendition of Johnny Cash's iconic track 'Folsom Prison Blues.' It was unforgettable and left an impression on all four of the show's famous coaches.
During his nearly 50 years in country music, Johnny Cash proved to be one of the most prolific recording artists of his time. He brought equipment everywhere -- often to prisons -- to capture unique sounds and tensions on tape. Those rarities and long since forgotten live albums are just part of what's included in the new 'The Complete Columbia Album Collection' box set.
On this day in 1970, the number one country song was "Sunday Morning Coming Down", by Johnny Cash. The song was written by Johnny's friend and "Highwaymen" colleague, Kris Kristofferson and was a big pop hit as well. We're featuring it today on the "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m. (It's one of my favorite Johnny Cash hits).
"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.
In my opinion, any time we feature Johnny Cash on our "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m., it's an event. Today we kick off with "Sunday Morning Coming Down", a song written by Kris Kristofferson and recorded by Johnny Cash on this day in 1970. It went to number one later that year.
One of the most successful singer/songwriters in both country and pop music is Kris Kristofferson, and today is his 76th birthday. We begin today's "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m. with a song he wrote and Sammi Smith recorded, "Help Me Make It Through The Night", which went to number one in 1971. You may remember when he was recording with the Highwaymen (along with friends Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings), so we'll feature a song recorded by them as well.
