One Piece At A Time

September 3, 2016

“One Piece At A Time,” written by Wayne Kemp, a number 1 country hit for Johnny Cash and the Tennessee Three in 1976. Someone really assembled a car like the one in the song, and it’s in the Johnny Cash Museum.

“Well, I left Kentucky back in forty nine
An’ went to Detroit workin’ on a ‘sembly line
The first year they had me puttin’ wheels on Cadillacs”

A GRAMMY® Award That Would Mean Something

February 13, 2011

Like the music recording awards show itself, most GRAMMY® nominations are tiresome, but one of tonight’s nominees stands out. It’s an ever-changing music video with singing by a dead man and drawings by two hundred thousand of his admirers across the globe. The video above is just a snapshot of The Johnny Cash Project. Go to the site itself for a richer experience. You can even become part of it by making a drawing. Learn more about the crowd-sourced production from some of its contributors after the jump.

All Asshat and No Cattle?

November 4, 2010

All Asshat and No Cattle?

Republican Congressman John Boehner got heavy use out of a Republican gag recently:

“Remember when Ronald Reagan was president? We had Bob Hope. We had Johnny Cash. Think about where we are today. We’ ve got President Obama, but we have no hope and we have no cash.”

It’s almost funny the first time, but not to the daughter of Johnny Cash, singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash. She shared her outrage with a few hundred thousand close friends via Twitter:

 “John Boehner: Stop using my dad’s name as a punchline, you asshat.”

 Ms. Cash later expressed regret. Not for writing that, but for posting it on Twitter.
