Staying In Tomorrow Night?


Tomorrow night.

On RTÉ One, at 9.35pm.

Nathan Goes to Nashville.

RTÉ writes:

John Carter Cash, the only son of Johnny Cash and June Carter, is featured on Nathan Goes to Nashville, a documentary following Nathan Carter as he journeys to the home of country music.

He tells Nathan: “My father certainly loved Ireland. He had a special place in his heart for Ireland. I know that he went there in the mid to late 1950s and on his first trip there he wrote a song called ’40 Shades of Green… He got there, he saw how beautiful it was, he saw the history that was right there to be seen and he was connected, of course, by blood, my father has Irish blood, but by heart and by the love for a beautiful, beautiful place and a fine, kind people.”

The documentary also features some archive footage of Johnny Cash speaking in Ireland in 1990…

Thanks Gareth

    Are there pensioners anywhere in the world better served by their public broadcaster?

    Sure you can look forward to the day when you’re in your elderly chair watching – with a melancholy tear or two – when the offspring of Justin Bieber is telling tale of when his or her ‘da’ was wanderin’ around Maynooth…

      Justin Bieber is indeed the modern day equivalent of Johnny Cash.

    If he loved Ireland so much why wasn’t he called Seanie Airgead?

      He used that name when they smuggled him in to do Mountjoy Prison Blues and the Ballad of Ira Heads.

    Is Nathan Carter related to Johnny Cash?
    There are just too many similarities in their sound, the depth of their respective bodies of work, the gravitas in their voices and just in their whole look and the way they carry themselves to just be coincidence.

    My wife’s grandfather was flying to US in mid seventies and was sitting beside a guy who asked his name and what he did. He told him his name and said he was a farmer and then asked the other guy the same. He said his name was John Cash and he was a singer.

    Johnny Cash was more Rock N Roll than Country.
