Johnny Cash was Roy Orbison’s best friend. They met in 1955 when Johnny played on Roy’s Radio Show. Cash moved next door to Orbison to be his neighbor. He was Godfather to Roy’s boys Wesley, Roy Jr & Alex and was at the hospital when Roy Jr. was born. The Orbison and Cash families still enjoy multigenerational friendships.
God Bless Johnny Cash!
