A great man, powerful, a giant of his era…sees his Empire of Dirt reduced—like everyone we know—to nothing. A powerful video to watch and consider and see the shaky hands and June and know that he lived all the way—all of it. Perfection isn’t the point: heart is. Caring is. Bravery is.
This poignant performance of Nine Inch Nail’s, “Hurt” is almost haunting, as it was recorded just prior to Cash’s untimely death. Whether or not a Johnny Cash fan, this performance is powerful and deep with emotion. Produced by Rick Rubin, The Man Comes Around is the fourth and final Grammy Award-winning album Cash and Rubin have collaborated on.
Bonus, the original, which no one ever expected Cash to cover (thanks, Rick):
