Point of Interest
“The career of country singer Johnny Cash was flagging in the late 1960s when he had a brilliant idea: perform and record a live concert in front of a room full of convicts. The resulting #1 album, "At Folsom Prison," resurrected Cash's career and blasted Folsom into the American pop culture mainstream like a water cannon aimed at rioting inmates. You can visit the Museum (a small charge) but very educational and interesting. ”
