"...Producer Bob Johnston died Friday. This is a chapter from my online book Is It Rolling, Bob? Now that Johnston and Johnny Cash are no longer with us, maybe Columbia will finally release this extraordinary album...."
"...Since his death more than a decade ago, there’s been no shortage of Johnny Cash releases. None match Out Among the Stars..."
"...2], I found a minor error. There is indeed a .41 caliber pistol, and I'm betting that Johnny Cash was no complete stranger to it either, www.fishandhunttexas.com/41_remington_magnum.htm. Keep up the good work...."
"...Before this week, if you wanted to catch something akin to the true essence of the Man in Black on the big screen, you’d have had to track down a copy of the all-but-forgotten 1961 drive-in also-ran Door to Door Maniac. This Desperate Hours retread from American International Pictures starred Johnny Cash as a funereal thug who takes tyke Ronnie Howard and his mother hostage in the wake of a bank heist gone southbound..."
"...Johnny Cash: a staple in any jukebox worth its salt, but not necessarily someone whose music one imagines burning up the Great White Way. Well, it sure didn't in 2006, when Ring of Fire landed on Broadway; "the Johnny Cash musical show" flopped, closing a mere month after opening..."
"...The use of flashbacks further fleshes out the main characters as well as the events for which Matthew is imprisoned. Providing haunting musical backlighting for the film's visuals are songs written expressly for Dead Man Walking by artists such as Bruce Springsteen, Eddie Vedder, and Johnny Cash..."
"...But, it is this unusual cultural combination which, for the most part, successfully serves as the driving force behind the life and dreams of the protagonist, John “Dingo” Anderson (Friels). A tracker by trade who hunts the Australian wild dogs of prey known as dingoes, “Dingo” Anderson is also a struggling, part-time musician who dreams of breaking away from the dusty outback dancehalls and the Johnny Cash-meets-Herb Alpert-and-the-Tijuana Brass repertoire of his small band, Dingo and the Dusters, for the sophisticated, urban aesthetics of modern jazz..."
"...Johnny Cash’s most funereal material – songs of hard luck, murder, and sorrow – gets the spotlight on 5 Minutes to Live, a short-but-not-sweet tribute record spiked with appearances from scoundrel heroes of underground music...."
"...Long before his death in 2003, Johnny Cash stood tall as an American icon. His image captured the imagination: backswept pompadour, coal-black eyes, lines crosshatching his craggy face..."
"...To say the show was a hot ticket is to egregiously dismiss the sheer anticipation that permeated the venerable theatre full of high-falutin' credential-sniffers. After all, SXSW has pulled off some fairly spectacular names (Tony Bennett, Iggy Pop, Johnny Cash) and always provides at least one free show for the plebes such as this year's Fastball appearance, but this was Tom Waits, eccentric genius worshipped by critics, suits, musicians, and fans alike..."
"...Phillips produced at 706 Union Avenue in Memphis, either releasing them himself or leasing to other seminal imprints like Chess Records, reveals that the title to Peter Guralnick’s definitive Phillips biography is no idle boast. The remaining subtitle almost reveals the plot line to last November’s epic tome: “How one man discovered Howlin’ Wolf, Ike Turner, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley, and how his tiny label, Sun Records of Memphis, revolutionized the world!”..."
"...Kris Kristofferson. Johnny Cash..."
"...She’s promoting last year’s Carter Girl, which celebrates country music’s first family. Mother Maybelle Carter (1909-1978) was her grandmother and June Carter Cash (1929-2003) her mother...."
"...This Sunday's All-Star Tribute to Johnny Cash brings the music legend back in black. Remember the scene inCity Slickers in which Phil (Daniel Stern) reminisces with his buddies (Billy Crystal and Bruno Kirby) about his dad? In that scene, he says he and his dad could never talk without butting heads, but once they started talking about baseball, all the tension drifted away..."
"...Had begun thinking of really transcendent music events in my life when recently the Austin History Center posted the Austin Music Network's footage of Johnny Cash performing at Emo's for SXSW in 1994...."
"...10:30 Johnny Cash at Emos, SXSW 94..."
"...Fitting that Glorium played a benefit for Jonathan during Emo's last week on Red River. – Greg Beets Johnny CashMarch 17, 1994..."
"...photograph by John Carrico Well, I was hoping that this could be the first article written about me that didn't mention Johnny Cash," says Damon Bramblett, a mere 99 seconds into the interview. Oops..."
"...Earl Poole Ball. For months, the buzz around Austin has been, "Oh, Earl Poole Ball, the guy who played piano on Sweetheart of the Rodeo," but there is much more to the 58-year-old Ball's story than that one admittedly great achievement. With 40 years' experience and a pedigree that includes work with Merle Haggard, Buck Owens, Ricky Nelson, the Flying Burrito Brothers, and a 20-year tenure with Johnny Cash, there's quite a bit more...."
"...The Johnny Cash Museum in Nashville, Tenn., walks the line around a ring of fire surrounding the Man in Black...."
"...Jot down a short list of post-WWII male country superstars: Hank Williams, Lefty Frizzell, Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson. There's maybe half a dozen more, at least, but Jones makes the list every time..."
"...JOHNNY CASH/WILLIE NELSON..."
"...OLD 97's: Dallas' Old 97's may look to Hank Williams and Johnny Cash for inspiration (and who wouldn't?), but when they play, it's closer to Primus' Les Claypool, who slaps the bass in a pool of his own sweat. Blood, toil, tears, and yes, sweat have paid off for the 97's, who just recorded the follow-up to 1995's Wreck Your Life, and work the so-called "insurgent country" vein as hard as ever..."
"...D: Bill Karn (1961) with Johnny Cash, Vic Tayback, Merle Travis, Ron Howard, Midge Ware. (aka Door-to-Door Maniac)..."
"...“After Leonard Cohen, I did Cash. I might have done Cash before Dylan even..."
"...Live From Austin TX (New West)Johnny Cash..."
"...Johnny CashAmerican IV: The Man Comes Around (Def American) Considering his deteriorating health, it's amazing Johnny Cash is even able to record these days, which may ultimately explain the elegant, austere beauty of The Man Comes Around. This time around, producer Rick Rubin teams Cash with Benmont Tench on piano, and Randy Travis, Randy Scruggs, and Thom Bresh on guitars for some very understated arrangements..."
"...3 stars -- Jim Caligiuri JUNE CARTER CASH..."
"...AC: This Old Road seems like a singer-songwriter's album by design. It's bare-bones, not unlike Rick Rubin's collaborations with Johnny Cash and Neil Diamond..."
"...Rosanne CashFriday 3pm, SBC stage Rosanne Cash was scheduled to play at last year's Austin City Limits Music Festival, but her father, Johnny, passed away a week or so before, and she understandably canceled the gig. As you might expect, her appearance this year follows a period of great personal change and heartache...."
"...Except one year it was Johnny Cash, and he was playing at Emo's – one set with his traditional backing band and a set of the new material he was exploring. At Emo's: Johnny Cash in a relatively small, intimate setting..."

"...For his part, Cryer says he always paid Gilley in cash and that Gilley lied on the witness stand. Gilley says Cryer is a liar who doctored his contract..."
"...Luther Waxling (Hopper, in a brilliant embodiment of a self-serving huckster). When Martin's lack of cash proves a turn-off to the good doctor, Martin turns for help to Waxling's assistant Marie (Douglas), who aspires to sell her unproduced horror screenplay about a “spine sucker” that looks like “a gangrene penis with a lobster claw” and a heroine who is “a fully realized, multi-dimensional character with huge breasts.” Martin and Marie go to New York to get some fast cash through the contacts of a business acquaintance played by Walken..."
"...THE HOLLISTERS: Could these Houston boys be any more Texas? Of course not, and that was a rhetorical question, son. Last year's debut on Austin indie Freedom Records, The Land of Rhythm and Pleasure, was raining country and twang like pecans offa Johnny Cash's pecan tree..."
"...You know that man with the guitar: That's Johnny Cash. That's an image of Johnny Cash, at least, and a Cash much younger than you recall him from the video cover he did of Trent Reznor's "Hurt," with all his Man in Black history providing a more storied foundation to the song's emotional pain..."
"...High School Reunion: Round Rock High School alums from the class of '93 gather in Oahu to settle old scores and spark old loves, giving the phrase "get a life" renewed meaning. Premieres Sunday at 8pm on the WB.Worth Watching Johnny Cash in San Quentin..."
"...No Dead Kittens: Driving in to work this morning after dropping my son off at school (actually, having gotten his permit, he drove there), I listened to a pristine bootleg of about 20 songs that Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan cut in Nashville a couple of decades back. Rather than a focused recording session, this was more in the vein of sitting around, playing together, and enjoying each other while producer Bob Johnston ran tape..."
"...Snoop Dogg first showed his allegiance to “main man” Johnny Cash on last year’s “My Medicine,” but his most recent project may have taken this seemingly hollow fascination of the Man in Black to a new low. Teaming with John Carter Cash, Johnny and June’s only child, Snoopaloop presents Johnny Cash Remixed, a thirteen-track pile of crap that would stink up the whole Grand Ole Opry faster than you can say “I Heard That Lonesome Whistle Blow.”..."
"...Three friends discover their new flat mate dead but loaded with cash...."
"...Johnny CashThe Best of the Johnny Cash TV Show (Legacy)..."
"...The Old 97's did a little reflecting of their own Saturday, about their very first Austin gig at Logan's BBQ on West Campus, by playing "Hitchhike to Rhome" as the ubiquitous Beatle Bob bopped along stageside. The Dandy Warhols' languid drone perfectly matched the overcast weather, and thousands stood rapt as the big screen at the Cingular stage played Johnny Cash's "Hurt" video before the impromptu tribute necessitated by the cancellation of Cash's daughter Rosanne..."
