Tommy Cash’s “My Brother Johnny Cash” Shows There’s No Greater Than The Love Between Family

Tommy Cash's ‘My Brother Johnny Cash’
by

While being a sibling of a popular and more successful celebrity often leaves them stuck, living in their shadows, Johnny Cash’s youngest brother Tommy Cash went on to make a name for himself in the music industry. 

Though he got some pretty big shoes to fill, he earned a list of exceptional achievements in his own right. He managed to release 25 remarkable albums, with several of them paying homage to his country legend brother.  

RELATED: How Much Do You Know Johnny Cash’s Brother, Tommy Cash?

Among the last albums he released was All I Care About: Shades of Black in 2008 – just five years after Johnny Cash passed away. On the album, Tommy took the opportunity to honor his brother once again, especially in the touching song “My Brother Johnny Cash.”

A Brother’s Tribute To The Man In Black

Tommy Cash‘s affection for his older brother shined through in “My Brother Johnny Cash.” With his deep voice sounding eerily the same to Johnny, he sings about his brother’s life – from his childhood days to the time he spent in the military service to the legendary success he enjoyed in his music career, and even including some of his troublesome days.

He fondly remembers his brother as a man of honor and much more of a legend.

Born in 1940 in Arkansas, Tommy was the youngest among the six siblings. Just like Johnny Cash, he began learning music at a very early age and started his music career by forming a band in his high school days.

Throughout his career, he earned quite a few hits as well. This includes “Six White Horses,” which reached No. 4 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. His other notable hits were “One Song Away,” “Rise and Shine,” and his final top 20 hit, “I Recall a Gypsy Woman.”

You can watch his performance of “My Brother Johnny Cash” in the video below.
