'Ring Of Fire’ Brothers of the Heart Perform Johnny Cash Classic
Johnny Cash is a musical legend, producing several iconic hits during his illustrious career. One group of talented musicians covered likely Johnny’s most popular and beloved song.
In a clip posted to YouTube, Brothers of the Heart performed “Ring of Fire” before a studio audience.
“Ring of Fire” is a song so widely known that most will recognize the song within the first couple of notes. Even those who are not big country music or Johnny Cash fans know the song.
In other words, “Ring of Fire” is a song that if you’re going to attempt to cover, you better do it well. Anyone listening will be able to, with relative ease, will judge it against the original version.
Fortunately, the guys do the song more than justice. Everything from their guitar playing to their violins to their harmonizing sounds awesome! The lead singer even sounds a bit like Johnny himself.
The group’s pitch-perfect harmonies are most apparent during the song’s well-known chorus.
“I fell into a burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns”
In addition to just sounding terrific, the guys all appear to be having a ball and enjoying themselves. The studio audience is also having a great time. Several people in the video sing, clap or tap their feet along with the song.
The Man in Black likely would have given his stamp of approval and been more than pleased with the Brothers of the Heart cover of his beloved country tune.
Others commenting on the YouTube video were thrilled with the guys’ rendition of the Johnny Cash hit.
“I’ve been listening to this on repeat for days, and I still can’t get enough. The instrumentation and production are just flawless!” one person posted.
“Omg! Why this song makes me dance and the lead singer he is so good, can't mimic his voice either. So beautiful love it again,” a second person wrote.
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise (Psalm 98:4).
