The Man in Black is too cool for just country. In his fifty-year career, Johnny Cash has cultivated the aura of a rock star, his baritone and black duds oozing with style and breaking the Gene Autry “singing cowboy” mold. He’s even cool enough to cover Nine Inch Nails. But all that style can obscure the substance behind it — Johnny’s Blues brings Cash’s songs to the fore, where they’ll blow you away with their depth.
