Mesmerizing Duet Of ‘Jackson’ Brings Johnny Cash & June Carter Back To Life

Noah Overby YouTube Channel

Johnny Cash and June Carter, country music legends and husband and wife, were perhaps the most iconic country love story the industry has ever seen. Cash, first seeing the beauty backstage at one of Elvis Presley‘s backup singers at the Grand Ole Opry, proposed to Carter on February 22, 1968. The two were married two short weeks later, having one child and growing into old age with just as much love, possibly more, as they had began with in their youth. Their most iconic duet, “Jackson” has continued to be a staple to the duo, who were also glorified in singer Heidi Newfield’s heartwarming ballad “Johnny And June.”

While the iconic couple have passed, a version of their upbeat duet may have just reopened the “Johnny And June” wound that country music fans so tirelessly fought to heal. Singers Noah Overby and Elizabeth Stroup adhered to the challenge of living up to the couple’s outstanding song “Jackson,” as we confidently believe that they made the two incredibly proud. Not only does Stroup’s vocals strike a similar resemblance to that of Carter’s, but Overby’s booming, deep voice and expression capture the elements that echo Cash and made him the man we can never forget!

The singers, capturing the country essence in subtle flannels, give one heckuva of a performance for the classic, as we also admire Overby for his impressive guitar abilities! The simple, yet incredibly done, cover is one we guarantee you’ll enjoy, possibly even making this cover your new relationship goal! After all, you can never go wrong with a little Johnny and June!
