To paraphrase a great Southern author, Johnny Cash is dead and I don’t feel so good myself. I can’t even muster the will to bet on football. I just heard “A Boy Named Sue” in a bar last night. The Man In Black was probobly one of the greatest country cross-over artists ever. He brought a bad ass rock n’ roll attitude to country music. He defied Nashville. He defied network television. He helped make the careers of many talented musicians (including Bob Dylan). He sang gospel. He sang protest songs. He enjoyed a career resurgence in the 90’s. He made the world a better place. He brought joy to my life. He will be missed.
