Johnny Cash Bash

Well, about a month after we posted the Johnny Cash Cover song challenge on Facebook,
there were 22 artists from 13 different cities, 3 random countries, and 2 different sexes who posted some amazing Johnny Cash cover tunes.

The rules were to simply record yourself with no edits using a computer or a single camera so the trickery of autotune and super-hero video splice editors wouldn't be able to cover up the raw beauty of artists sharing their tunes. Musically naked.

So, feel free to go through all of the videos here or below and thanks to Google Maps, there's a nice little visual for you to see where all the submissions came from. Thanks Google.
