Johnny Cash Sings at a Billy Graham Crusade

1971--Texas Stadium.  Only Johnny Cash could get away with singing songs about hangovers, wishing he was "stoned," and shooting a man "in Reno just to watch him die" and then follow that up with a performance at a Billy Graham crusade.  Classic!

One of my favorite moments in American religion is a 80s Billy Graham crusade (saw the rerun) Johnny Cash reciting the "Ragged Old Flag" Poem about "Old Glory" and then inviting June to come on stage with him and sing "The Old Rugged Cross." This makes the American religion scholar side of me giddy and the Christian side shudder.
