My grandmother passed recently and Johnny Cash was one of her favorite artists. I was never too big into country myself but the sounds of country music bring back warm memories of her from childhood. In the wake of her passing I thought the cover Cash did of the Nine Inch Nails song “Hurt” just kind of fit the mood for the way I felt the weeks leading up to and following her death. I know the story behind the cover and it combines music that my grandmother loved with music that resonates with me. (NIN fan)

Anyway, hope you enjoy.
