Johnny Cash is known for so many iconic hits that is hard to pick just one that stands out. If I were pushed into a corner and had a pick one song that showed what Cash was all about I might pick this one. It was back in 1969 that Johnny introduced us to the young man with the unfortunate name of Sue.

'A Boy Named Sue' was sitting in the number one spot on the country chart on this day in 1969. I can remember sitting in my basement while my parents would have parties and hear this song blasting from my basement. I think I will take at trip back there right now...join me.
