Johnny cash is quite possibly the most iconic country music star of all time. Cash’s most iconic albums, At Folsom Prison and At San Quentin albums, are arguably the most important in his discography. Cash could relate to his prisoner audience with his storytelling. Many of his songs have outlaw themes, and include Cash’s own experiences in jail for minor offenses.

Cash had performed at a variety of prisons before even considering recording the shows. In fact, Cash performed at dozens of prisons. However, his legacy will be most remembered for his Folsom and San Quentin performances.
