Alabama 3 Hello…I’m Johnny Cash Release Date: 9 May 2005
Taken from forthcoming album ‘Outlaw’, single ‘Hello…I’m Johnny Cash’ sees “country band with a twist” Alabama 3 singing about the most famous prison visitor in the world. It helps this song is also the theme to ‘The Sopranos’, but huge TV broadcasting revenues and mafia bosses are not its only charm. Telling it like it is, Alabama 3 strike a chord for their own way of mixing cowboy bluegrass with a touch of Brixton’s acid house, and with this song they revisit American mythology – particularly as it’s about the one and
only Johnny Cash – quoting his ‘trademark’ greeting in the title. It has the power to become an instant classic, and apparently the new album has got references to Nashville’s Great Train robbery, with the exception the train they got inspired from might have left from Waterloo station, London (UK). Never mind .
