CASHback is a wild, weekly boom-chicka-booming ride through history like you have never experienced. What's a CASHback you ask? If a flashback is a vivid memory of the past, when those memories are of the life and times of Johnny Cash, we call them CASHbacks. Only on CASHback can you find the stories and songs, the legends and the lore, the history and the hijinks, the sessions and the songs – all residing next to each other. Only a show like CASHback is big enough (even if just barely) to hold Johnny Cash and his legendary friends, inspirations, and their true stories of the songs to fit.
