Johnny Cash Cover Song Challenge

Well, about a month after we posted the Johnny Cash Cover song challenge on Facebook, there were 22 artists from 13 different cities, 3 random countries, and 2 different sexes who posted some amazing Johnny Cash cover tunes.

The rules were to simply record yourself with no edits using a computer or a single camera so the trickery of auto-tune and super-hero video splice editors wouldn't be able to cover up the raw beauty of artists sharing their tunes. Musically naked.

So, feel free to go through all of the videos here or below and thanks to Google Maps, there's a nice little visual for you to see where all the submissions came from. Thanks Google.

This video was produced through Tribehouse: A culture of collective creativity. For more information on Kelowna based Tribehouse click here.

About the Author

Ryan Donn is a singer/songwriter, event producer, digital creative, and Councillor at the City of Kelowna

I love creating songs, which have been used by the Terry Fox Run, Kelowna’s Centennial Celebration, or heard on various local radio stations. 

In the past few years, I've focused on creating community events including Music in the Park, New York New Years, Castanet’s Free Family Skate, Talented Kids, Talented Kelowna, and others.

Originally from Scotland, I’ve lived in Kelowna for over 20 years. My wife, Kimberly, and our two daughters, Lyla and Bella, share our home with Tom (adult with diverse abilities).

In 2014, I was elected to Kelowna City Council. 

Opinions are my own, and don't represent the City of Kelowna, Festivals Kelowna or Creative Okanagan.
