Rodney Crowell zum Tod von Johnny Cash

"I am deeply saddened by the loss of my childrens grandfather and my very dear friend. I loved Big John with all my heart. The citizens of the world have lost one of their most enduring guiding lights. As a musical hero to millions, a trailblazing artist, humanitarian, spiritual leader, social commentator and most importantly, patriarch to one of the most varied and colorful extended families imaginable, Johnny Cash will, like Will Rogers, stand forever as a symbol of intelligence, creativity, compassion and common sense. Im thinking Mt. Rushmore."
