Johnny Cash Gospel music

As part of Columbia/Legacy's ongoing celebration of Johnny Cash's 80th Birthday in 2012, the label assembled a series of compilations under the rubric "The Greatest." Gospel Songs rounds up 14 spiritual songs Cash recorded between 1957 and 1976, with most of the selections deriving either from the late '50s or early '60s. Surprisingly, there's very little overlap with his 1959 LP Hymns - only "The Old Account" is shared - as this cherry-picks gospel tunes that appeared on other LPs over the years. Sometimes the definition of "gospel" is expanded slightly, with a cover of Curtis Mayfield & the Impressions' "Amen" included along with the hit "Daddy Sang Bass" - they're both spiritual in nature - and the selections aren't strictly country-gospel, either, and that leads to a compilation that is livelier and musically more varied than other similar collections. And that also means it's better - this doesn't rely on somber reverence, there's joy to be heard in these 14 songs.

Johnny Cash was one of the biggest red neck racist idiots on the planet. Thankfully they've planted his tried ignut butt.
But I digress. I like some of the old country stuff and a lot of the new country. At first I wondered why??
A lot of old blues singers in the south used to write country songs and I have a lot of rural, southern values in me. Of course I was living in Atlanta when it struck me good.
But New Country is even more seductive because they stole the old R&B format and pumped rap at yall. Rap is cool ... don't get me wrong
