Artist Statement 

As one of the iconic American musicians of the 20th century, it's not hard to say Johnny Cash had an inexorable affect on the trajectory of songwriting and performance. His openness with what wasn't shiny in life, frankness with what wasn't polished helped shift the subjects in popular music of the time. When others sang in major concert halls, he went to San Quentin and made a difference in the lives of the downtrodden. He told them yes, life can be challenging, but love keeps going, so you keep playing.
