Following the success of 1968’s At Folsom Prison and 1969’s At San Quentin, ABC tapped legendary singer-songwriter Johnny Cash to star in his own television show as a summer replacement for their Saturday night variety show, The Hollywood Palace. Though short-lived, The Johnny Cash Show featured performances by some of the era’s most influential artists including Bob DylanJoni MitchellNeil Young, Louis ArmstrongRay CharlesStevie Wonder, and Eric Clapton.

On June 7th, 1969, The Johnny Cash Show premiered on ABC. Taped at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, then home to country music institution the Grand Ole Opry, it was a venue Cash had fulfilled the dream of playing 13 years prior following his chart-topping hit “I Walk The Line.” Episode one featured performances by singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, Cajun fiddler Dough Kershaw, comedian Fannie Flagg, and to many’s surprise, Bob Dylan. That night Dylan played “I Threw It All Away” from his 1969 country album Nashville Skyline, “Living The Blue,,” which would appear on 1970’s Self Portrait, and a final duet with Cash on “Girl From The North Country”.
