CASHback is a wild, weekly boom-chicka-booming ride through history like you have never experienced. What's a CASHback you ask?  If a flashback is a vivid memory of the past, when those memories are of the life and times of Johnny Cash, we call them CASHbacks. Only on CASHback can you find the stories and songs, the legends and the lore, the history and the hijinks, the sessions and the songs – all residing next to each other. Only a show like CASHback is big enough (even if just barely) to hold Johnny Cash and his legendary friends, inspirations, and their true stories of the songs to fit.


"Come Along and Ride This Train"


This special episode is a somber tribute to Cash’s life as we mourn his death on the 11th anniversary of his death. Like every episode, this show also features a musical history lesson in the people and the places and, of course, the music that made the man in Black the Man. This week, our train features stops that recount the life and times of Muhammad Ali, Hank Williams, and Helen Carter.


"On the Record"


This segment features the details behind the recording of some of Cash's biggest (and most obscure) recordings. This week’s song is “I’m Alright Now.”


"On the Charts"


This segment features the charted hits of Johnny Cash. This week, “Gone Girl” is on the charts.


"On the Road"


This segment presents a song from a Johnny Cash concert recording out along the road that Cash took from the cotton fields to the hall of fame. This week, Cash is at the Deutchslandhalle in Berlin, Germany performing “Cocaine Blues.”


"Gospel Time"


When he arrived at Sun Studios, Johnny Cash introduced himself to Sam Phillips as "Johnny Cash, gospel singer." This segment highlights the gospel (and music) side of Johnny Cash. This week’s gospel song is “Here Was a Man.”


At the conclusion of each episode’s first run on Johnny Cash Radio, it will be available for download at

Troy King is a recovering politician (he was Attorney General of Alabama for six years before accepting his present musical gig) and the host of CASHback, a wild, weekly boom-chicka-booming ride through history like you have never experienced. If you thought history was dull, you have just never experienced it through the lens of Johnny Cash and his music.

Troy became a Cashaholic when he was three years old. An avid fan, while his friends were rocking out to the music of the seventies and the eighties, Troy was enjoying music from the man who paved the way for those who followed. While many of the pop music flashes inthe pans (or, as Cash himself would later describe them “has beens, would bes, never weres and hopeful stars of flickering magnitude”) burned out as quickly as they appeared, Johnny Cash remains a magnificent oak tree in American music’s garden of pansies. It was Johnny Cash’s love and reverence for the musical traditions that underpin all American music forms – blues, gospel, rock and roll, and country – that captured Troy’s imagination. The more he listened to Cash, the more he became intrigued. Soon, Troy was a musical historian, fascinated by the stories behind the people, places, events, and song and steeped in the rich history of American music. An expert on Johnny Cash, Troy was honored when Bill Miller, the curator of and the Johnny Cash Museum and the host of Johnny Cash Radio’s flagship program invited Troy to take a seat behind the microphone and to take every Johnny Cash fan on a weekly musical odyssey through Johnny Cash’s music.

Join Troy each week and enjoy a full dose of CASHbacks! I’ll bet you won’t be able to avoid tapping your toe and singing or humming along as you learn all about the history and hi-jinks; stories, songs, and sessions; people and places; myths and, of course, music that made the Man in Black the Man. Tune in this week!
