Many country stars often enjoy paying tribute to their fellow artists, past and present. One artist whose timeless songs continue to be performed by today's country stars time and time again is the one and only Johnny Cash.
With countless hits such as "Ring of Fire" and "I Walk the Line," artists have no shortage of songs to chose from if they decide to cover the legendary "Man in Black."
When "Buy Me a Boat" singer Chris Janson took to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry on June 16, 2015, he chose to perform another one of Cash's hit songs, called "Folsom Prison Blues." A live version of the song was a number one hit on the country charts in the U.S. and Canada, and it has become recognizable for it's train-like sound.
During his Opry performance, Janson chose to recreate the song's signature sound in an unexpected way.
Before he started singing, Janson surprised the crowd by reaching into his back pocket and pulling out a harmonica. He started off playing a simple rhythm similar to a train, before he really broke it down and showed off his true skills.
After his short harmonica solo, Janson jumped into singing the song, and delivered an equally impressive and energized performance. It's clear that he loves performing, and he truly gave this one his all.
Toward the end of the song, Janson pulled out his harmonica one last time, and what happened next will leave you speechless!
You can watch Janson's performance in the video below.
Who else suddenly feels inspired to go learn how to play the harmonica?
