A Catholic Ear for Johnny Cash
I have always loved Johnny Cash! Maybe the Mississippi part of my blood comes out when I listen to him (Thanks Grandpa Leake). Lately I think the priest in me wants to go beyond the words of his songs to something deeper. I just find that there is a Catholic soul in his music. It is just so honest and gritty. I read an article by John W. McMullen that expresses it much more clearly than I am able. I attached the Hurt video about as well. This is a great video to watch a few times as we get into these final weeks of Lent. You have to watch the video a couple of times to get the most out it. I hope you enjoy it if you haven't seen it before.
