* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: Managed surprisingly often during the run of ''The Johnny Cash Show'' (1969-1971), whether it was bringing on guests other shows and networks wouldn't allow, like Bob Dylan and Bob Seger, inserting dirty jokes into songs like "Don't Play Red River Valley", jor performing near-taboo songs like "A Junkie's Prayer", "As Long as the Grass Shall Grow" and "The Ballad of Ira Hayes" (the last two songs being heavily critical of the government; ask the Creator/SmothersBrothers how well that went for them on their TV show a couple years earlier). There are also videos of him performing "A Boy Named Sue" and "Cocaine Blues" on the show in which the word "bitch" is uncensored. Possible backfire as the show was cancelled after two seasons in part due to a drop off in ratings, though this could just as easily be attributed to the lowering popularity of musical variety series or Cash's proclivity for doing episodes devoted to religious music.

-->''So the very next day when I punched in\\
With my big lunchbox and with help from my friends\\
I left that day with a lunchbox full of gears\\
Now, I never considered myself a thief\\
But GM wouldn't miss just one little piece\\
Especially if I strung it out over several years''

** "Delia's Gone", probably the only time a sub machine gun is referenced in a country song. It's as absurd as it is dark.

A subsequent prison concert album, ''Music/AtSanQuentin'' would feature a comedy song called "A Boy Named Sue" which would become Cash's biggest hit. From 1969-1971 he hosted his own [[TheJohnnyCashShow self-named variety TV series]] and continued to record prolifically through the 1970s though the hits came less frequently. In 1986, he was dropped by his longstanding label Creator/ColumbiaRecords and began an unsuccessful stint at Mercury Records. During this period his major success came as a member of the country supergroup Music/TheHighwaymen.

In 1988 Cash met Music/FrankZappa backstage and were set to perform together on stage, but when Cash's wife's got sick he couldn't be present, so Zappa covered "Ring Of Fire" alone with his band. Their live rendition can be heard on Zappa's ''Music/TheBestBandYouNeverHeardInYourLife'' (1991).

Starting in TheNineties, Cash underwent a CareerResurrection, beginning with a well-received collaboration with Music/{{U2}} on their song "The Wanderer". Then, under the guidance of RecordProducer Music/RickRubin and his label American, Cash recorded a series of albums nicknamed "the American series", starting with 1994's ''American Recordings''. Marked by minimalist production (''Recordings'' was recorded solely with a guitar and vocals) and covers of various bands, such as Music/TomWaits' "Down There by the Train", Music/{{Soundgarden}}'s "Rusty Cage", Music/{{U2}}'s "One", Music/NickCave's "The Mercy Seat", Music/NineInchNails' "Hurt" and even Music/DepecheMode's "Personal Jesus", these albums earned him critical acclaim and a new, younger audience of AlternativeRock fans. The MusicVideo for "Hurt" was widely acclaimed.

* RealityIsUnrealistic: In reviewing "Walk the Line," Creator/RogerEbert was surprised to learn that Cash really had proposed to June Carter onstge during a concert. "It feels like the sort of scene screenwriters invent, but no."
