Despite what the song says, Johnny Cash was not stuck at Folsom Prison. He did, however, perform there (twice) on this day in 1968. The recordings from those shows became his 27th album, “At Folsom Prison,” which reached the top of the country charts and the top 15 of the national charts. Accompanied by Carl Perkins, the Tennessee Three and his future wife, June Carter, Cash opened both shows with his ever popular hit “Folsom Prison Blues.” Those of you who are familiar with this recording will recall a cheering after certain lyrics. These cheers were inserted in post-production. In fact, the prisoners attending the show made sure to not respond to any prison-related comments from Cash in the hopes of not upsetting the guards.
