Trivia: Johnny Cash

  • Career Resurrection: The American albums in the 1990s brought him back into popularity, even if only in an underground kind of way.
  • Creator Couple: He and June Carter stayed together until death.
  • Fan Nickname: "The Man in Black".
  • Missing Episode/The Shelf of Album Languishment: For no apparent reason, Out Among the Stars was recorded in 1981 and 1984 and was unreleased for thirty years. It finally saw release in 2014.
  • What Could Have Been: Cash covered the Don Schlitz song "The Gambler" shortly after Kenny Rogers recorded his version. His associates thought it had big hit potential and urged him to release it as a single before Rogers did, but Cash didn't care for the song and declined.
