“Hello, I’m Johnny Cash” Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Reaching No. 1

“Hello, I’m Johnny Cash” Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Reaching No. 1

How about a little Johnny Cash trivia to pass the time?

50 years ago, Johnny’s 1970 album, Hello, I’m Johnny Cash, ended its four-week run at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart (March 28–April 25).

In addition to the iconic title, the album was noteworthy for a number of reasons, including:

  • It featured three Top 5 singles: “Blistered,” “See Ruby Fall” and “If I Were a Carpenter.”
  • Johnny’s duet with June Carter Cash, “If I Were a Carpenter,” earned the couple the 1971 Grammy Award for Best Country Vocal Performance by a Group of Duo.
  • The 12-song album featured “To Beat the Devil,” which was the first Kris Kristofferson-penned song that Johnny cut.

Just how iconic is the Hello, I’m Johnny Cash album title? When Nashville’s Johnny Cash Museum re-opens after the COVID-19 shutdown, the title will continue to greet guests as they walk in the door.
