On this day in #1969, Johnny Cash taped his TV special at the Grand Ol Opry in Nashville and it included Bob Dylan. Dylan’s band was the same group that backed him on Nashville Skyline: Kenny Buttrey, Charley McCoy, Pete Drake, Norman Blake, Charlie Daniels and Bob Wilson, and they performed “I Threw It All Away” and “Living the Blues.” The session included Joni Mitchell, the Statler Brothers and a remarkable Cajun fiddler named Doug Kershaw. Although Cash’s show had a rocky two years on ABC, this duo playing together went down as a major milestone in music history 🎶 Regram @rollingstone
