Tricky Dick And The Man In Black

Bildergebnis für tricky dick and the man in black

Yesterday I watched on Netflix a documentary about Richard Nixon when he invited Johnny Cash for a concert in the White House. Nixon knew that Cash was popular at these days and some kind of peoples voice and he wanted to exploit him for his campaign to conquer the so called silent majority of the south. There was a lot of people telling something about these times and the date Cash met Nixon. That they had different kind of views of the political direction is known. But I didn't knew until now that the man in black stood the political authority of Nixon because he wanted him to play A Boy Named Sue and Okie from Muskogee. He played instead What Is Truth as a clear message to the President the he should consider carefully how he treats those who disagree with his views. That is one thing that made Johnny Cash great and unforgettable.
