Johnny Cash Commercials – Refused To Promote Alcohol [VIDEOS]

Johnny Cash’s voice and presence dominated Country Music from his first No. 1 ‘I Walk The Line’ in 1956 to his last Grammy Winner ‘Hurt’ in 2003. It’s no surprise that ‘The Man in Black’ was recruited to endorse several products through the years.

However, Cash never lent his voice or likeness to any commercial for alcohol or tobacco advertisements. The ‘Ring of Fire’ singer went through his share of struggles with addiction and made it a point to help others avoid the same mistakes.  Even after his death, his son John Carter Cash admitted to WSNX radio that the Cash estate recently turned down a lucrative offer from Absolut Vodka.

Here are some Johnny Cash commercials you may remember for Amaco, Lionel Trains, Taco Bell and Coca-Cola.  By the way, the above picture was taken near the end of Johnny’s life in 2002 as he received the National Medal of Arts from President George W. Bush.
