Walk the line

The movie presented the decision making process to perform a concert at the Folsom prison in stark terms. The business people behind Johnny Cash said that the performance would be an affront to his Bible belt audience. Johnny’s reply was to the effect that the criticism from fans would not be very Christian. Cash did perform at Folsom prison on January 13, 1968 and the album that was created became his greatest hit.

But then Johnny Cash knew his audience better than his business managers. "I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me." I would like to think he knew and understood his Bible better.
