78 years ago today John C. Cash "The Man in Black" was born.
Everyone who has any interest in country music knows who Johnny Cash was. If he had just rested on his laurels that he earned in the early days he would have been well known. But he continued to make music almost to the day he died. He didn't make music that Nashville wanted or even liked but he did things that he wanted to do. By doing that, he reveled a whole different side of himself. It wasn't a reinvention, but a display of a different aspect that the public never saw. If you don't believe me, check out Cash's version of Trent Raznor's song "Hurt". The man's soul is bared for everyone to see.
