Vote Now: Johnny Cash’s “A Boy Named Sue” vs. Conway Twitty’s “That’s My Job” for Father’s Day Supremacy

Last year, in honor of Father’s Day, the folks at the Nash Country Daily offices narrowed down our two favorite country songs about fathers to Alan Jackson’s “Drive (For Daddy Gene)” and George Strait’s “Love Without End, Amen.” Then we put it to a vote to let our readers decide which one was their favorite (George: 83% to Alan: 17%).

This year, we’re pitting Johnny Cash’s “A Boy Named Sue” against Conway Twitty’s “That’s My Job.”

We know, we know, there are plenty of other great songs about fathers, including Reba McEntire’s “The Greatest Man I Never Knew” and “Ricky Van Shelton’s “Keep It Between the Lines,” as well as new ones like Zac Brown Band’s “My Old Man” and Lee Brice’s “Boy,” but for the sake of this argument, it’s Johnny vs. Conway.

Check out the Tale of the Tape, give each song a listen, then cast your vote to help us decide. We’ve got “A Boy Named Sue” opening as the 3:1 favorite.
