Johnny Cash hunting?! Seems really cool, right? Well, watch then answer.
This footage was apparently taken from The Man & the Music, which I’ve never seen. Maybe more context would help explain why this clip gets a little strange.
First, the Man in Black sends out a decent crow call. Then he strolls through the woods with his rifle, seemingly ready to hunt, but then he stumbles upon an injured crow.
Watch what he does with it.
So, let’s recap. He grabbed the crow, determined its wing to be damaged, and decides he’ll keep it. The crow naturally struggles and bites Cash with its beak, which just merely gets a few laughs from the country crooner.
He talks to it, and even gives it an impromptu concert out in the woods. Not many creatures can say they’ve received one of those, man or beast.
So, what’s the takeaway from this? We know Cash can hunt, but that day, he must have had other things on his mind…
