I thought it was a girl. There must be a certain spot in Folsom for his mother one would hope.

However I must say as a punk lover that Cash is a god amongst musicians and has a top floor in the tower of song, (along with Cohen).

Am I the only person who found this incredibly creepy? That high, five-year-old voice singing about shooting a man in Reno just to watch him die? Reminds me of Chucky.

I thought he was great although I agree that they have to lose the haircut for this kid. I could barely walk when I was his age LOL and I'm sure Johnny and June got a big kick out of it up there.

This really is nothing special. At that age I could sing songs and play 2 WHOLE CHORDS. She just switches between the two and sings a song easy enough to memorize.

And, to settle the debate, IT IS A GIRL. The guitar has flowers, the voice is girly.
