Johnny Cash - His Last Video

This poignant look at Johnny Cash's last recorded video was produced by the BBC. The song called 'Hurt' was written by Trent Reznor of 'Nine Inch Nails'.

The video is part of the BBC's documentary titled, 'Johnny Cash: The Last Great American'. The doc profiled the life of the legendary country music star, who died in September 2003.

Whether you're a Johnny Cash fan or not, this documentary is powerful and wrought with emotion.

The song can be found on Cash's Album/CD, 'American IV: The Man Comes Around', released in 2002.

This album was his fourth effort with producer Rick Rubin.

Peace be with you... RIP Johnny.

I am 37 years old and I just bought my first Johnny Cash CD. Man I wish I was introduced to him about 20 years ago. Well its never to late.

Truer words couldn't be written Rob. I was lucky enough to have parents who loved country & western music. So every morning with my Cheerios, I heard that familiar twang of the steel guitar. Johnny's music would often be stuck in my head as I rode the bus to school. Thanks for the comment Rob, later.

I was brought up listening to Cash and his ilk like you Ace, my parents - particularly my mother, were C&W mad it was all that could be heard in my house.
