IAWTP. This one qualifies as best cover song in Any genre.
Cash had an uncanny way of taking someone else's song and making it his own, especially in his later days with American Recordings. For example, I never knew Soundgarden did "Rusty Cage", let alone five years before Johnny recorded it for "Unchained". His "Personal Jesus" is pretty good - IMO better than Depeche Mode's original but not as good as Marilyn Manson's cover.

John R. Cash (February 26, 1932 - September 12, 2003) was a vastly influential American country music singer, guitarist and songwriter. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnny_Cash However, in all fairness, perhaps it is better said that Johnny Cash transcended music genres rather than subscribed to them.
