43 years ago this week, you may have been singin' along to one of Johnny Cash's biggest hits.

During the first week of 1969, Johnny Cash scored a #1 country song with "Daddy Sang Bass." This song was one of over 150 singles he released from nearly 100 albums over his career. In a span of about five years, centered around 1969, Cash had a string of massive hit songs that still define country music: "Jackson," a re-release of "Folsom Prison Blues," "A Boy Named Sue," "If I Were a Carpenter," and "Sunday Morning Coming Down," just to name a few.
