Cash Wins 4 Americana Music Awards
The spirit of Johnny Cash was the star of the show Saturday as the legend was honored with four Americana Music Awards a week after his death. Cash was recognized as artist of the year and for song (for the Nine Inch Nails cover Hurt) and album (American IV: The Man Comes Around) of the year. Cash’s late wife, June Carter Cash, was also honored with a day of recognition from the state of Tennessee. The ceremony was held Saturday during the 2003 Americana Music Conference in Nashville.
