Sheryl Crow and Willie Nelson teamed up at the "All-Star Tribute To Johnny Cash" in 1999 to perform June and Johnny's hit "Jackson." They opened the star-studded show with the country couple's 1967 smash hit paired seamlessly with Johnny's "Orange Blossom Special."
Other performers who paid tribute to the man in black included Kris Kristofferson, Brooks & Dunn, John Carter Cash, Roseanne Cash, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett, Dave Matthews, and many more!
June and Johnny's "Jackson," originally recorded in 1963 by Billy Edd Wheeler, won the 1968 Grammy for Best Country and Western Performance Duet, Trio, or Group. It has since been covered by Nancy Sinatra, Florence and The Machine, and Owl City, to name a few.
"Orange Blossom Special" was originally recorded in 1938 and has been referred to as the fiddle player's national anthem. Johnny Cash named his 1965 album after the song and replaced the fiddle parts with two harmonicas and a saxophone. Cash would play both harmonicas himself and usually added some spoken-word jokes that changed with every performance.
