Johnny Horton

My friend Michael B. posted about singer/songwriter Johnny Horton not too long ago. Johnny was a very popular country/rockabilly performer back in the fifties. He is most remembered for his hit saga songs; North To Alaska, Battle of New Orleans, Johnny Reb and Sink the Bismark.

Johnny always had a premonition about his own death - that he'd be killed by a drunk driver in which he was. Both he and Johnny Cash were good friends. When Cash heard of the collision - he locked himself in a bar-room bathroom and wept.
