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…

In December 2010, the family of Johnny Cash auctioned a collection of the Man In Black’s personal items, including handwritten lyrics, poems, the blue jumpsuit he wore during his legendary performance at San Quentin prison ($3000 – $5000) and his vintage 1951 Martin guitar ( $20,000 – $30,000).

Also, the above to-do list.

Without doubt, the coolest to-do list in existence.
