Johnny Cash filmed four Christmas specials between 1976 to 1979 which were broadcast on television. The 1978 one is perhaps the most memorable.

In the special Johnny and Kris are joined by their wives for a memorable rendition of “Christmas Time's a-Comin’.“

THE 1978 CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

The special was usually filmed at Johnny and his wife June’s home in Nashville, but in 1978 it was shot in Hollywood.

The change of location was mainly to accommodate the guest stars on the special. These included Kris and his wife, Rita Coolidge.

In the finale, Johnny is joined by June and their daughters; Roseanne, Tara, Cathy, Cindy, Rosie, and Carlene.

The 1979 Christmas special was the last one that Johnny did. However, his career spanned many decades until his death in 2003.

IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY

Johnny Cash’s grandson, Thomas Gabriel, has proven that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree as he follows in his legendary grandfather's musical footsteps.

Thomas blew audiences away during a recent performance of his grandfather’s iconic song “God’s Gonna Cut You Down.”

He has a deep voice like Johnny and perfectly executed his performance of the song. This might be a skill he picked up as a young boy when he would follow his grandfather on the road while he toured.

HONORING MR CASH

In May this year, Johnny Cash was honored by the Johnny Cash Museum in Nashville when they unveiled the gold record of his hit song “I Walk The Line.”

Johnny was in possession of the record until his death, after which it went on auction several times. This year the museum was able to get hold of it in another sale.

“I Walk The Line” was the singer’s first number one single and he performed it and nearly every show he played during his career as it was a firm crowd favorite.
