    Hey there.

    I know there will have been many thread for Johnny before but I wanted to start one because I've only recently discovered his music. I'm a metal fan and heard I Walk The Line in the record shop one day so I bought some of his CDs. His music is so beautiful...especially Were You There (When The Crucified My Lord) and Would You Lay With Me.

    There's just something about his voice. It's so warm and yet tough but still gentle...if that makes sense. I could listen to him all day.My friedns who are into metal kinda make fun of me for liking Johnny but they really should give him a try. He's a legend.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Don't worry about your friends making fun of you for listening to Johnny Cash. I think you're friends are jealous because you've got good taste in music. ;)

    I think that this is the first thread for Johnny Cash too. :)

    Really? I'd have though there would have been a lot about him. I noticed on the inside of The Best Of there's little sections written by people influenced by Johnny-and some of them are metal legends like the clown from Slipknot and James Hetfield from Metallica. Hah! Some ammon to use against my mates's messing around!

    John Cash was a great singer. His dying wish was to record an album as a tribute to his wife June Carter/Cash, who did so much to pull him out of the *muck and mire* of life than he found himself entangled with.

    He recorded the album, and died shortly thereafter.

    Both of them will be giving performances in the great hereafter, forevermore.

    Does that mean that you don't listen to Johnny Cash?

    If you are suggestingthat I am totally unfamiliar with the music of Jonny Cash, that is an inaccurate statement.

    But in reality, the only CD's I have purchased are southern gospel CD's, not country. So, my familiarity with Johnny Cash's music is considerably less than someone who is a big fan.

    If we are going to talk about Johnny then we mustn't forget about his daughter.

    Go see Walk the Line!! Great movie. Reese Witherspoon should win the Oscar for her portrayal of June Carter.

    Have you read any of the books Cash wrote ?
    Seen any of his movies ?
    There's so much more to the man than just his music.
    Hope you get the chance to appreciate all his talents. :cool:

    I recently discovered Cash as well, he's great!

    I read this letter at the inside of the cover of the 'Silver' album yesterday, and posted it: Must read!
