Stand-and Ride-in The Man in Black's Shadow: Johnny Cash's 1970 Rolls-Royce Headed to Auction

You'd be hard pressed to find an American icon more intrinsically linked to the dark side of the American dream than Johnny Cash. Equal parts rebel, musician, addict, and God-fearing gospel singer, The Man in Black's lyrics unapologetically drip with southern-fried Americana, the majority of his vast catalog revolving around romance, steam trains, automobiles, substance abuse, and the twin pillars of country music: sin and redemption.

Live Review: Eric Church and Dwight Yoakam at Verizon

Apparently Dwight Yoakam 's acting career is sufficiently slack enough that Friday night saw him opening for bro-country kingpin Eric Church at Verizon Arena. Hollywood is taking Yoakam in small enough doses that he can lend his considerable talents to country music, which currently can use any kind of flavor it can get.

Kevin Bryan's record reviews

New Model Army, "Between Wine And Blood" -The latest offering from this uncompromising rock institution couples a powerful live set recorded during the first half of the band's recent "Between Dog and Wolf" tour with a six track album which NMA laid down in the studio when they were unable to complete the rest of their live dates because of drummer Michael Dean's health problems. The band have been together for more than three decades now but they've rarely sounded more relevant or compelling,and this fine 2 CD package provides an ideal introduction to their melancholy and thought-provoking sound.

Red Bank: Gentle Giant from Sugar Hill

Country singer-songwriter Don Williams rolls his tour bus up to the Count Basie for a Monday one-nighter on September 15. Although he's scored numerous chart-topping C&W hits, won countless CMA Awards and even gotten himself inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, he's arguably better known as a song-scribe for performers that have ranged from Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Kenny Rogers, to Pete Townshend, Robert Palmer and Eric Clapton. He's even done at least one Farewell Tour and Final Farewell Concert, before pulling a Favre and hitting the road and the recording studio once more.

Cashing in: The Man in Black's 1970 Rolls-Royce heads to auction

On the outside, Johnny Cash was a troubadour for the common man, his songs often painting a picture of blue-class struggles, with his all-black wardrobe representing "the poor and the beaten-down." In his downtime, however, the country music great had a penchant for Rolls-Royce automobiles, including a maroon stretch limousine built from a 1970 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow LWB and a second 1970 Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow, in black, given to him by ABC Studios.

Concert preview: Volbeat, 5FDP set to show off heavy metal shapeshifting

At first glance, the bands Volbeat and Five Finger Death Punch don't seem to have a whole lot in common, other than sharing space under the generic umbrella of "heavy metal." The former originated in Denmark and features a melodic fusion of hard rock, punk, country and rockabilly, with lead singer and guitarist Michael Poulsen being raised on a musical diet of Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash before going on to front a death metal outfit in the early '90s.
