Music Video: Jason Aldean - Johnny Cash
"Johnny Cash" is the title of a country song co-written by John Rich, Vicky McGehee, and Rodney Clawson. It was originally recorded by Tracy Byrd on his 2004 Greatest Hits album, but not released as a single.
In 2007, a version of the song was recorded by Jason Aldean, as the lead-off single to his 2007 album Relentless. Released in early 2007 as Aldean's fourth single, it also became his fourth consecutive Top Ten hit on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, where it peaked at #6. The song was also featured in the soundtrack to the video game NASCAR 08.
"Johnny Cash" is an up-tempo song in which the narrator addresses his lover, inviting her to join him on a road trip to Las Vegas. The connection to singer Johnny Cash is made only in the chorus ("Blastin' out the Johnny Cash"), indicating that Cash's music will be played while the narrator and his lover are on their road trip.
A radio edit for Aldean's version was also issued, substituting the spoken phrase "screw you, man" with "I'm outta here, man", although some edits have no spoken phrase here at all. Some edits of the song also omit the line "the Man in Black gonna rock your ass again".
The music video takes place in places around Las Vegas, and features Jason Aldean and his band playing. The video was directed by Wes Edwards.
