One Band, 5 Songs: Johnny Cash (Part 2: The American Years)

In the dawning days of the 1990s, country legend Johnny Cash found himself without a record label or a direction for his career. Enter record producer Rick Rubin. The co-founder of Def Jam Records, founder of Def American Recordings (later simply American Recordings), and producer of albums by the Beastie Boys, Run-DMC, Slayer, Danzig, and The Cult, Rubin offered Cash a recording contract and the opportunity to go back to the basics. The resulting period revitalized Cash’s career until his death in 2003.

A podcast dedicated to examining the career of one musical artist through the lens of five of their classic songs.
