Johnny Cash's All-star Tribute

Johnny Cash Is Still Number One !!!

Just an hour before he was to sing Folsom Prison Blues at his own tribute concert last week, Johnny Cash wasn’t sure he could do it. "It’s been 19 months" says the 67year old singer, who hadn’t preformed publicly since being diagnosed with a nervous disorder that has weakened him, destabilized his blood pressure and nearly taken his life. " Even walking down the stairs to go to the stage when I was going on, I had my doubts about myself, if I could pull it off ," Cash says "because folsom Prison Blues takes a lot of energy or not. "As it turned out, I did. I had more than enough. If they had scheduled more songs for me, I probably would’ve sung them. Though he appeared grayer and frailer than he did at his last concert, in in October 1997, when he nearly fell over while reaching for his pick, the Man In Black’s commanding baritone still resonated through New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom. He sang Folsom Prison Blues, then led an all-star chorus that included Sheryl Crow, Dave Matthews, The fugees, Wyclef Jean and Cash’s wife, June Carter Cash, through I Walk The Line

Johnny Cash Tribute #2

I really loved watching the TNT Johnny Cash Tribute, (Truly a great show)!. I thought the highlight of the show, for me was when Johnny Cash sang Folsom Prison Blues, and in the end of the song throwing his guitar on his back stepping up in that same tuff Johnny Cash style, an bowing to his audience, in which I’ve seen him do for many many years. To all the artist that participated in show they all did a great Job in doing a wonderful Tribute to Johnny Cash. Also Thanks to TNT Cable Network for making the show possible.    Steven Menke
