Cash Didn’t Like “Hurt” Video at First

Johnny Cash’s daughter Kathy told reporters backstage at the CMA awards that her father was unsure about his acclaimed “Hurt” video. “He wasn’t sure he liked it at first, but we kept watching it with him. And he said, ’You know, that is a pretty good video.'” John Carter Cash, the son of Johnny and June Carter Cash, said, “I think we were all a little shaken by it, because of the revealing nature of the video. It’s very personal. But his life was an open book, whether it was a video or wherever.” The video won Cash his first CMA award since 1969. He also won for album and single of the year. 11/6/03
