Taking it back to 1970.
Digging into the vaults on this lovely Saturday afternoon and we’re graced with none other than the great George Jones and his April, 1970 appearance on The Johnny Cash Show.
Hosted by its namesake, the great Johnny Cash, the show ran for 58 episodes beginning in 1969, ending in 1971.
Airing from the Ryman Auditorium, the show featured country music performances from some of the bets in the business including Bob Dylan, Marty Robbins, Glen Campbell, Merle Haggard, Charlie Pride, Joni Mitchell, Linda Ronstadt, Tammy Wynette, Roger Miller, Waylon Jennings, and George Jones.
And back in April of 1970, ol’ Possum himself appeared on the show, alongside Johnny for a performance of “White Lightning,” before continuing on with other hits like “The Race Is On,” “Love Bug,” and “She Thinks I Still Care.”
Needless to say, it’s two of the best to ever do it, sharing one stage.
They sure don’t make ’em like George and Johnny anymore…
