Johnny Cash Honoured At Americana

Country legend JOHNNY CASH has been honoured with artist, song and album of the year gongs at the AMERICANA music awards show just a week after his death.

Cash, who died on 12 September (03) after suffering complications from diabetes, won song of the year on Friday (19SEP03) for HURT, an anti-drug song written by NINE INCH NAILS rocker TRENT REZNOR, and album of the year for AMERICAN IV: THE MAN COMES AROUND. Cash was chosen artist of the year for his work on the song and album.

Singer-songwriter and actor KRIS KRISTOFFERSON, who was Cash's friend for 30 years and co-wrote his hit SUNDAY MORNING COMING DOWN, received the SPIRIT OF AMERICANA FREE SPEECH AWARD at the Nashville, Tennessee show.

Kristofferson is a longtime activist for social justice and human rights. Friday's show was the second for the AMERICANA MUSIC ASSOCIATION, a group which promotes traditional country music.
