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.
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.
