Australia’s Tommy Emmanuel has won a Grammy Award for his part of the recording of the Johnny Cash classic ‘Folsom Prison Blues’ with Johnny’s son John Carter Cash.

‘Folsom Prison Blues’ won the Grammy for Arrangement, Instrumental Or A Cappella for The String Revolution.

The song was produced by Johnny and June’s son, producer John Carter Cash and recorded at Johnny’s private studio, Cash Cabin in Hendersonville, TN in 2023. The String Revolution was able to use Cash’s 1930’s Martin H Acoustic Guitar as well as Cash’s band member, Luther Perkin’s guitar – a 1954 Fender Esquire, which was used on the original Cash “Folsom” recording. The song was mixed by Matthew Hyde and Mastered by Emerson Mancini.
