Yesterday was Johnny Cash Birthday (posthumously) and I meant to write something up to tell how I much I appreciate his influence and all that but got distracted, so THANK YOU VERY MUCH Mr JT Hodges for this awesome tribute to the Man in Black, Johnny Cash. JT sure does this song, “Get Rhythm” justice. I love JT’s style, he’s my favorite Country Crooner and always nice to look at. You can get lost in those baby blues.
JT was raised in a recording studio… literally. “My family started Fort Worth’s first multi-track recording studio,” Hodges explains, referring to Buffalo Sound Studios, a facility that played host to artists as disparate as T Bone Burnett and Michael Bolton. Were the kids allowed to hang around? “Oh, it was part of our chores!” he laughs. “On weekends when there were sessions, Pops would make us vacuum and clean the bathrooms. Once we were done, my brother and I would be so excited to go into my dad’s audio library and listen to record after record, on vinyl or quarter-inch tapes. That was the environment that I grew up in, crawling around under the console starting at 8 months old.
