Thread Name: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
Subject: RE: Johnny Cash - How come an icon?
More than almost any other singer, Johnny Cash knew how to deliver a song straight from his heart into the heart of the person listening.

When all is said and done, and with all due respect to Jimmie Rodgers, Hank Williams, George Jones, Mere Haggard and so many others,I think he was THE definitive country music artist (and a great folksinger to boot).
