I'm not surprised the sadness and the vibe of it fits country totally and it could totally be crossed over any of those songs that he covered could be crossed over onto the country charts as well and should be because of the country vowed that he put to him out of the country spin. We're talking about Johnny cash on the imbalance history rock and roll his difficulties with Substance it's just say that because it was a variety of things at different times thank We're always a challenge. But something happened. When he met June Carter Cash. June Carter was part of the famous Carter family mother may bell the whole gang right there. Well known if you need to find some documentation about all that I suggest you go. And Find Willis Circle BE UNBROKEN ANNOUNCED. That was put together by the nitty gritty dirt. Band guys back in the seventies. It's full of music ex. That explains all the circles in that country that circle country and how it's relevant moving forward. Johnny and his wife stayed together in June him worked on the road. Things were falling. Apart at home he hits rock bottom places and some of its depicted to some degree in the in the movie. Walk the line. Oh yeah there's some dark there. Johnny hit some dark places and I walked the line so I can only imagine in reality. They were much darker and much heavier than what was depicted. What am I gonNA things that happened out of the fifties Johnny cash started at Sun Records right now and started recording for Sam Phillips and that's whereas some of the initial attention certainly at Columbia records came from The work he was doing for Sam and while he's on Sun. These other fellas were getting involved Met Her to Elvis. Somebody Neva's perry-lee Somebody Perkins and they were all kind of like in the circle of artists that Sam Phillips was working with and I don't know if it was part of his initial plan but eventually they all pretty much moved onto other labels and other things as the fifties became the sixties especially some of them right there in the middle of all this like Elvis go and RCA in in the fifties and all will sun records was releasing johnny cash songs until nineteen sixty four. Even though Johnny had left a few years before because of how much music he had recorded with Sun Records and I'm sure a lot of that was the gospel records as well as the country. Stuff that didn't cross over to the pop. Because of the early days it was much more of a raw country feel well the atmosphere at Sun records certainly lead to one of the most famous unexpected recording sessions ever. It's become known as the million dollar Quartet. These guys were talking about four of them. Were all in the studio. All working on stuff Elvis Jerry Lee coral and Johnny cash on December Fourth Nineteen fifty-six and Sam just let the tape roll and recorded everything that was going on kind of the early guys did with recording Robert Johnson. Just record everything you can always add later and they did.
