Johnny Cash

Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison

Jan 13, 1968 (56 years ago)

Folsom State Prison     Folsom, California, United States

Though Johnny Cash had been performing at prisons and other correctional facilities since 1957, he didn't record any of these concerts until a 1968 concert at Folsom State Prison. Ironically, his 1955 hit single "Folsom Prison Blues" was named after this prison. The subsequent album "Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison" became a commercial and critical success, going on to be certified triple Platinum by the RIAA and earning an induction into the Library of Congress National Recording Registry in 2005.
