He was named J. R. Cash because his parents could not think of a name. When Cash enlisted in the Air Force, they wouldn’t let him use initials as his name, so he started to use the legal name John R. Cash. In 1955, when signing with Sun Records, he took Johnny Cash as his stage name.
We’ve partnered up with Rocket Fizz in Ventura to create a Johnny Cash tribute soda, and just like Johnny’s parents, we’re having a hard time coming up with a name for it (we can’t all be as creative as Johnny). We have a few flavors to choose from, so let your imagination run wild.
If you have any ideas, leave a comment on the bottom. If we use yours, you’ll win a six pack of soda and a Roadshow Revival goody bag redeemable at the Festival. Get your tickets now. 35% off with promo code RSR2014B This Month only!
