Soul Is Country and Country Is Soul

On my podcast I spoke of a great performance by Ray Charles on the Johnny Cash show doing "Ring Of Fire." Here it is:

The little bit about the difference between "city love" and "country love" before the performance is pretty priceless. Check out the very knowing look on both Johnny and Ray's faces.

Excellent post! I grew up listening to Ray's "Love Country Style" almost every weekend - it's my mom's favorite album (after Aretha's "I've Never Loved a Man" of course). This brought me back, I can almost smell my mom's cooking while my parents dance in the kitchen.
