Solo, Cash recorded At Folsom Prison, which remains his best album and a contender for the best country record of all time. Shel Silverstein gave him "A Boy Named Sue," which became Cash's only Top 10 pop hit. Cash has recorded many religious albums, including The Gospel Road with Kris Kristofferson, Larry Gatlin, and the Statler Brothers. He moved to Mercury Records in 1986 and found success immediately with "The Night Hank Williams Came to Town" and an all-star album, Water from the Wells of Home with Emmylou Harris, the Everly Brothers, and Paul McCartney. His contribution to country music is inestimable.
