Happy Birthday to the Late Johnny Cash!

Happy Birthday to the late Johnny Cash!

Unfortunately I don’t have a Johnny Cash story to share, as I never got to see him perform live. But he was a pretty big hit in our home, growing up.

One time I did get to DJ at the Knitting Factory in NYC after his death for a Johnny Cash diabetes benefit. Whenever I deejayed I always threw some Johnny Cash in the mix (although one uptight goth rocker didn’t dig it and I got flack for it — screw him, ha-ha, how could you not love JOHNNY CASH?!)

Here are a few amazing tunes from the legendary JOHNNY CASH!

It Ain’t Me Babe

One Piece at a Time

Folson Prison Blues


And Johnny Cash’s impersonation of Elvis! (Perhaps the first Elvis impersonator ever? This is hysterical!)

Happy Birthday Tanya Tucker

I honor Tanya Tucker today on her birthday because she performed one of the saddest, prettiest songs I ever heard in my life, “Spring.”

The sound quality isn’t that great, but listen to the words, and if you have half a heart, you’ll be crying your eyes out. Whenever she sings, “I’ve waited a long, long time for you” I can’t help but think how much I love my husband and how lucky I am to be married to the most amazing person I ever met in my life.
