Johnny Cash Is Golden

Johnny Cash Is Golden

Johnny Cash 

Johnny Cash was born February 26, 1932, in Kingsland, Arkansas, J.R. Cash was one of six children belonging to Ray and Carrie Rivers Cash. When John was three years old, his father took advantage of a new Rooosevelt farm program and moved his young family to Dyess Colony in northeast Arkansas. There the Cash family farmed 20 acres of cotton and other seasonal crops, John worked alongside his parents and siblings in the fields. Music was an integral part of everyday life in the Cash household. John soaked up a variety of musical influences ranging from his mother’s folk songs from the fields and the nearby railroads yards. He absorbed these like a sponge absorbs water. In later years Cash would draw from his in Arkansas for inspiration "Pickin Time" "Five Feet High And Rising"and "Look At Them Beans" are all reflections on Cash’s early life.


Johnny Cash Learned to play the guitar from a polio-stricken school friend, Pete Barnhill. To me he was wonderful, the sound he made was purely Heavenly. He's where I got my guitar style,playing rhythm and leading with my thumb

AUDIE MURPHY PATRIOTISM AWARD TO JOHNNY CASH
given in 1972 at the Spirit of America Festival in Decatur, Alabama

Audie Murphy was the most decorated American soldier in history, receiving every decoration for valor America can give, as well as 5 decorations from France and Belgium. He now stands as an icon of patriotism and the American spirit. This award is given at the annual 4th of July Spirit of America Festival to an "outstanding American patriot or an outstanding group of individuals who most exemplify the true ‘Spirit of America.’ " Johnny's entire career was peppered with songs about the American experience, and his own patriotism was never hidden. In 1972 he released the intensely patriotic America. With other albums such as Songs of Our Soil (1959), From Sea to Shining Sea (1968) and Ragged Old Flag (1974), Johnny Cash always remained grounded in his American roots, striving to unmask and celebrate his country's history.
