Johnny Cash Is #1

The Man In Black has his first chart-topping album since 1969’s Johnny Cash At San Quentin. (Take that High School Musical!)

This Nick Cave cover’s from III, not the new A Hundred Highways, but it’s one of my faves from the American series.

Johnny Cash – “The Mercy Seat” (MP3)

Who d’ya think selected all the alt-rock songs Cash covered in the last decade? Rubin? I just have a hard time picturing Johnny rocking out to Violator.
