- I Walk The Line: On this day in 1986, country music legend Johnny Cash was dumped by longtime record label Columbia Records. Cash had been with the company for 26 years, and released a number of hit records and albums including: Don’t Take Your Guns To Town, Ring of Fire, I Walk The Line, Folsom Prison Blues and Man in Black. But Cash was no longer making cash for Columbia and he was unceremoniously dumped by the label. Cash bounced back though, releasing several albums with Mercury, before teaming up with Rick Rubin in 1994. We can thank that partnership for the song, “Hurt,” one of the most haunting and sad songs Woburn Patch has heard.
