Farm Aid 1985: Cash & Waylon Jennings Perform

From the 1985 Farm Aid concert: Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash perform “Folsom Prison Blues”

Farm Aid was a benefit concert to help the plight of family farmers in the USA. It was organized by musicians Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Neil Young and first took place on September 22, 1985. The show featured the leading light of country music, so it was only natural the Johnny Cash should perform at the event.

Waylon Jennings introduces Cash with the words, “This is my friend on the road, at home, and everywhere for about 25 years. Truly a legend in his own time. This is Johnny Cash.”
