The only two country music singers that got me pretty choked up when they passed away were Vern Gosdin and Johnny Cash. Vern was known in Nashville as "The Voice". Johnny Cash on the other hand was more of an icon in the country and pop music worlds. Johnny Cash was so many things to so many people. He was a champion of the poor and downtrodden, a prolific songwriter, a unique singer and entertainer, television personality and so many other things. Cash was so complex that you can't even put him in any one category. The best thing you can say was that he was a true original. No one else was like him. I thought you might enjoy this video by two other singers that I truly admire: Kid Rock and Hank Williams, Jr.
