If you don't like Johnny Cash, you need not read any further, but...
IF you ever heard anything of his you liked, you need to visit http://www.johnnycash.com It is a comprehensive site that is well organized, and interesting to say the least.

I'll have to say that I have been a Johnny Cash fan my whole life. He's been in my playlists consistently for years. He was more than a "Country" singer, and he never demonstrated this more vividly in his career than in the last few years. He released four albums of cover songs from 1994 through 2002 that were some of his best work. You can view discographies and listen to samples HERE. Unless you've heard all these albums, I guarantee you will be pleasantly surprised to hear his covers of artists like U2, Danzig, Soundgarden, Nine Inch Nails, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen... The list is long and diverse.

Rusty Cage
(Johnny Cash -- Soundgarden cover)

You wired me awake
And hit me with a hand of broken nails
You tied my lead and pulled my chain
To watch my blood begin to boil

But I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
Gonna break my rusty cage and run

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
Gonna break my rusty cage... and run

Too cold to start a fire
I'm burning diesel, burning dinosaur bones
I'll take the river down to still water
And ride a pack of dogs

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage... and run

[Tempo change]

When the forest burns along the road
like God's eyes In my headlights
When the dogs are looking
for their bones
And it's raining icepicks
on your steel shore

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage and run

I'm gonna break
I'm gonna break my
I'm gonna break my rusty cage... and run

And finally...

Infamous early photo of Johnny Cash, used in an add in Billboard magazine in 1998 after Cash won a Grammy for Best Country Album.
The Caption on the photo was, "American Recordings and Johnny Cash would like to acknowlege the Nashville Music Establishment and Country radio for your support."
