No one represents American music more than Johnny Cash. Songs like “Walk the Line,” “Folsom Prison Blues” and “Long Black Veil” gave a voice to those who were never sung about.
Nearly 60 years after his booming first notes hit the airwaves and almost 10 years since his passing, Johnny Cash is being honored and celebrated as never before.
The program begins with some of Cash’s biggest hits performed by contemporary music stars, moves on to feature once-in-a-lifetime performances and duets from music legends, then wraps with monumental collaborations among all performers.
