How long was Johnny cash in jail?
Johnny Cash never went to jail. Every now and then he’d get thrown in for the night to sober up or come down, but he never actually got sent to prison. In his early career, when he wrote and recorded ‘Folsom Prison Blues’, Sun producer Sam Philips thought the records would sell better if people actually thought Cash had written the song while behind bars. So the myth started to circulate, but it was never anything more than a myth.
