Two of today’s hot country stars, Josh Turner and Martina McBride share stories in USA Weekend’s article, “Why America Loves Country Music.”
Turner has this account of meeting the Man in Black:
You apparently have an, ahem, unique Johnny Cash story. Tell us about it.
Turner: I got to reading about his neurological disorder, and I thought, if he dies before I get a chance to meet him, I'm going to be so disappointed. So one of my friends had a book that tells you where stars live, with addresses. Sure enough, Johnny Cash's address is in there. So I head off to Hendersonville, where he lived in Tennessee. I was just praying that I'd come across as a genuine person that cared and not ...
McBride: A stalker?
Turner: Yeah, a stalker. I found the place, and the gate was open, so I drove right in. I knocked, and eventually the door swung wide open, and there's Johnny Cash! He had reading glasses and bedroom shoes on, in a long-sleeved denim shirt and gold chain. I said, "Mr. Cash, my name is Josh Turner, and I was wondering if you had time to sit down and talk." He said, "Well, I've been ill lately, and I can't sit down and talk for very long." I told him I understood, and I was reading about him and praying for him. He reached out with that big old hand of his and shook mine and said, "Your prayers are appreciated." We spoke some more, and then he had to go back inside and rest. He shut the door, and I walked away with tears just flooding out of my eyes.
