Johnny Cash was not only one of America's greatest musical icons but one of its finest storytellers, and JOHNNY CASH'S AMERICA is a collection that focuses on the classic songs in his catalog that represent Americana in the truest sense. The tracks are culled from the 1950s, '60s, and '70s, including everything from Cash's rockabilly travelogue, "Big River," to the Vietnam-era mission statement "Man in Black" and his duet with Marty Robbins on "Song of the Patriot." It's important to remember that, while Cash never shied away from the dark side of things and didn't hesitate to point out his country's faults, he truly believed in the promise of America, and was in fact a real patriot. All of this is made apparent over the course of JOHNNY CASH'S AMERICA.
