Song of the Day: 'Tennessee Flat Top Box' by Johnny and Rosanne Cash LIVE!


Incredibly rare of footage of Johnny Cash inviting his daughter Rosanne to sing "Tennessee Flat Top Box" with him at a backyard book party to celebrate the publication of wife June's latest book about Mother Maybelle Carter in 1989. (The person who posted it notes that the dinner was held out on the tennis courts of Johnny and June's house.) While some have argued that YouTube has destroyed the "you had to be there" mystique of one-off television moments and events, I can't help but marvel at something this precious. Also have to wonder if the Cashes themselves -- grandkids, etc. -- even know it exists.
