Fans celebrate Johnny Cash’s Folsom prison album after 50 years

Fans of the late singer Johnny Cash are remembering the concert he recorded exactly 50 years ago – performing before an audience of inmates inside one of America’s toughest prisons.

The event highlighted the harsh conditions they endured – and made Cash a country music legend.

It was one of many prison performances Cash gave during a career that made him one of country music’s most admired artists.
