Musical Mondays – Johnny Cash

It’s still Marvelous Male Month, and is there a more quintessential male musician than “The Man in Black?”

There were so many great songs to choose from. Some of my favorites:

“The Man Comes Around”

“Folsom Prison Blues”

“A Boy Named Sue”

In the end, I chose the hit from American IV, the final Cash album released during his lifetime. A cover of the Nine Inch Nails song, “Hurt,” embodied his musicianship to the very end—weathered face, broken body,  gnarled hands. He couldn’t be more real…and more beautiful.
