The Johnny Cash Show

The Johnny Cash Show


Country Music Hall of Fame

The Johnny Cash Show Johnny Cash was riding a new wave of popularity in 1969, thanks to the crossover success of his 1968 album Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison. When ABC approached him about hosting a weekly TV variety show, Cash felt he had the leverage to make a couple of simple requests: he would choose the musical guests himself, and the show would be shot in Nashville, at the Ryman Auditorium, home of the Grand Ole Opry. The Johnny Cash Show quickly achieved notoriety for the quality and scope of its musical offerings. These included country legends such as Mother Maybelle Carter and Bill Monroe, and country legends in the making, including Merle Haggard, Tammy Wynette, and Charley Pride.  In addition, Cash’s show was a pipeline for bringing cutting-edge folk, pop, and rock artists to Nashville. Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell were guests on the first show, June 7, 1969. Later guests included Linda Ronstadt, Neil Young, and Eric Clapton’s Derek & the Dominos. Some of these artists stayed around to work with the city’s ace session players in the relaxed atmosphere of local recording studios.  At a time when the nation was divided over issues such as the Vietnam War, Cash’s inclusive approach to the music on his show created a bridge between audiences. After fifty-eight episodes, the groundbreaking show. Learn more about Country Music Hall of Fame member Johnny Cash.

Taylor Swift, Rosanne Cash & Others Write About the Women of Country

by Reed Watson @ The Latest - Rosanne Cash

by Paul Sexton

udiscovermusic.com

Taylor Swift writing about Brenda Lee and an essay by Rosanne Cash on her stepmother June Carter Cash will be just two of the highlights of Woman Walk The Line, a new book due in September.

Edited by Nashville-based journalist, songwriter, producer and publicist Holly Gleason and subtitled How The Women In Country Music Changed Our Lives, the University of Texas Press book will examine the relationship between female songwriters and the women of an older country music generation who inspired them.

The highly personal essays will include Swift’s assessment of the 1950s pop hitmaker turned country matriarch Brenda Lee, titled Rare Peer. Rosanne Cash writes about her father Johnny’s second wife June in a piece entitled Eulogy For A Mother. Up-and-coming country artist Aubrie Sellers, herself from fine Nashville tradition as the daughter of Lee Ann Womack, writes about one of her greatest artistic influences, Alison Krauss (Draw Your Own Map).

White House memo suggests Nixon ‘neutralize’ Johnny Cash, 1970

White House memo suggests Nixon ‘neutralize’ Johnny Cash, 1970


DangerousMinds

 Richard Nixon’s presidency was marked by a legendarily thick air of paranoia. Dick feared the Democrats—sure, but he also feared Jews, intellectuals, black people, Mexicans and a lot of run-of-the-mill, unremarkable whites, too. In fact, Nixon’s adviser Murray Chotiner (ironically, a Jew and former Democrat), felt that Johnny Cash might upset the Republican masterplan, and hoped Nixon would set him straight at a White House event.  The fear was that Cash would carry water for Tex Ritter, a colleague and country music legend who was then running for Tennessee’s Senate Republican primary. Predictably, Cash never actually endorsed Ritter, who eventually lost by a landslide. Two years later, Johnny would visit Nixon again to discuss prison reform. The story goes that Nixon requested “Okie from Muskogee,” a Merle Haggard song satirizing reactionary “good ole boys” that Nixon most likely went over Nixon’s head. It’s said that Cash snidely responded by playing a decidedly bleeding heart, anti-war set of “What Is Truth?” “The Man in Black,” and “The Ballad of Ira Hayes.”I’d argue that Johnny Cash is a complex and powerful figure, and that it’s tempting to ascribe political dissidence...

The 30th anniversary of Rosanne Cash’s King’s Record Shop, one of the most influential country albums of the Eighties, will be celebrated with the release of a special 180 gram 12″ vinyl edition on July 7th.

…”King’s Record Shop was a watershed record for me, and, if I may say so, an important moment for women in country music at that time,” says Cash. “It was the first time a woman country artist had ever had four Number One singles from one album. I was tremendously proud, and deeply honored to work with the musicians who played on the album. Rodney Crowell was the guiding force, and he says he feels ‘blessed to have been a member of the team.’ I feel the same way: we were a team, and the work we created was captured in a shining moment that still gives pleasure these 30 years later.”
