"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.
Let's honor dad on today's "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m. with two "daddy" songs. We begin with Johnny Cash and family with "Daddy Sang Bass". We'll follow it up with Holly Dunn and that Father's Day favorite, "Daddy's Hands".
Talk about classics! Today we begin our "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m. with the number one country song on this day back in 1961 - "Hello Walls" by Faron Young. Staying in the 1960s, we complete the "Double" with "Understand Your Man", Johnny Cash's number one hit (and my favorite Johnny Cash song) on this day in 1964.
Today on the "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m. we're featuring "Boy Named Sue", a number one hit in 1969 for Johnny Cash. The reason why we're starting off with that song is that on this day in 1970, Johnny performed it at the White House for then President Richard Nixon. The story goes that President Nixon asked him to sing "Okie From Muskogee", but Johnny said that he didn't record that song (Merle Haggard did) and that he would rather sing one of his own.
Twenty years ago today, Alan Jackson's "Dallas" was the number one country song in the USA. Today, we're featuring that big hit to kick off our "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m. Our second song today is that classic number one from 1956, "I Walk The Line", by Johnny Cash.
There will soon be another reason for country music fans to flock to "Music City", Nashville, Tennessee. According to a report from CMT a Johnny Cash museum is scheduled to open in downtown Nashville in 2013. Several of Johnny's friends and family members made the announcement this week and described what the museum will include.
Today on our "Country Classic Double" at 11:30 a.m.,we're featuring twice the cash...Rosanne Cash and her dad Johnny that is. We begin the "Double" with Rosanne's number one hit back in 1981 "Seven Year Ache" and finish with Johnny's number one from 1964, "Understand Your Man" (my favorite Johnny Cash song).
Each day at 11:30 a.m., we go back in time, times two with our Big Frog 104 "Country Classic Double". Today, we're featuring classic duets, in particular Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, and Kenny Rogers with Dottie West.
