Good luck everyone. I've seen some of OKVolleyball's photos. They're gorgeous. He has a photographer's eye.

Nice contest, Stephen.

Cash is one of my heroes (along with Orbison and Harrison), so I feel contractually obliged to enter.
Quick question: does it have to be a song Cash wrote/first recorded, or can it be a song he covered?

Not sure when I'll get mine done, by the way.

Hi, this is my entry. "I Walk the Line." It was fun to do!

I've posted it also as a video response to the contest video but for some reason, it didn't work properly. Maybe there's just a delay.

man, Dirk, that is so good. I love your reggae voice. You really need to do more reggae covers of non-reggae songs, they're fantastic!!

Man, Stephen, you have some awesome entries to judge!! They're all great!!

Besides Dirks, I really like "Cocaine Blues" and "Folsom Prison", they're my 2 favorite Johnny songs. The SailQwesters "Jackson" was awesome too. How can you deny a "Jackson" duet, from 2 of the coolest people there are, in the middle of the Carribean!?

Good luck with the judging, I think they all have a shot at being winners!

This is great! How will you ever choose! lol I love that so far (from what I've noticed) no two people have done the same song! Any suggestions of an easy one that a beginner could do? I'm thinking Ring of Fire. If it's not too over-done in general. haha... fire... overdone...

Choosing a Johnny Cash song for the uke ain't easy. He had such a low voice and used low guitar parts, so adapting it to the uke is a challenge. Too bad I already did my Folsom Prison last year, but I am trying to find another.

Thanks so much, Dustin! Let me know how your "geared tuners" project is turning out! Btw, these peghead tuners offered by Fleamarketmusic are great, too! I have these on my Flea concert and I like them. They look like straight tuners and are very light.
