Johnny Cash: Peace in the Valley (date unknown)

Johnny Cash died 10 years ago and, as expected, there have been tributes and considerations of his long, diverse career.

And of course his position as a Mt Rushmore-like figure in American music and cultural life.

Let's just say Johnny was one of the Big Ones, and while we could skate through those American Recordings with Rick Rubin to find him covering material by Soundgarden, Tom Petty, Will Oldham et al., let's defer to the other side of Cash.

He was a man of profound faith which sustained him and during his life -- right from the start -- he recorded gospel songs.

This is the late Johnny Cash on an old classic.
