ray charles, johnny cash and black country music

for those of you who don't think that you like black country music, don't believe that it exists, or believe that black americana is an abberation before the Lord that i somehow invented when i self-released my CD, here's ray charles on his second appearance on the johnny carson show, singing everyone's favorite -- ring of fire.

actually, ray charles recorded this song for his album love, country style in 1970. truth be told, i love it when anyone can make a piano twang -- but this is something special.
