We Found A Johnny Cash Performance Of ‘Big River’ In High Quality – Watch
via OLD TAPES / Youtube
Country rock legend Johnny Cash never goes out of style with his songs. Like any other artist, he is known to incorporate places in his lyrics and tells us a story that could immediately be passed on as a real one.
For “Big River,” this was just another song that Cash has penned, but this is one of the good reasons why he is an icon: he knows music extremely well. The song tells us about a man who has strong feelings towards a woman that he follows her trail to the headwaters of the Mississippi River, up to the ocean. It might sound like stalking, but trust us on this one.
In this one clip where he performs the song, it’s everything that you ever want to hear. The country style of the music is transpiring in all places, plus Cash’s singing is on point. With his acoustic guitar, he charmed the listeners— something that the singer is quite known for. If you’re looking for something nostalgic, this one’s for you.
