The Monkees will perform this evening at the Ryman Auditorium on the same stage where this guest appearance on The Johnny Cash Show was filmed in May 1969. (Mike, Micky, and Davy sang Mike's own "Nine Times Blue.") Of note, portions of the Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. album were also recorded in Nashville, along with treasured Monkees cuts like "Listen to the Band." Be sure to check out this great article detailing the history the group has with the city.
The trio was joined by Johnny Cash after their performance of "Nine Times Blue" for a comedic take of "Everybody Loves a Nut," originally featured on Cash's 1966 novelty album.
