Covering Cash: Remembering Johnny 

It has been four years since the world lost Johnny Cash. His legend and songs will live forever, but he's a guy we could really still use around in these trying times when a lot of the people he stood up for are being overlooked. As an attempted homage, I've assembled various artists covering Johnny's songs. There are scores more on Youtube, and other forms of tribute including dozens of duets with Johnny and artists ranging from Bob Dylan to Louis Armstrong, and, of course, the love of his life June Carter.

Bruce Springsteen: "I Walk The Line"

U2: "Don't Take Your Guns To Town"

Pearl Jam: "25 Minutes To Go"

Social Distortion: "Ring of Fire"

Norah Jones and Kris Kristofferson: "Guess Things Happen That Way"

Kid Rock: "What is Truth"

Norah Jones: "Home of the Blues"

Joaquin Phoenix & Reese Witherspoon: "Jackson"

George Jones, Willie Nelson & Kris Kristofferson: "Big River"

This tribute is not exactly a cover, but truer words have never been spoken:
