Cash does a pretty good cover of "Hurt", maybe even better then the original by NIN. On his last album, he does a cover of "if you could read my mind" by Gordon Lightfoot, it's pretty damn good too.
It's a shame that house burned down, he must have wrote quite a bit of his music there.
I saw Trent Reznor (he IS Nine Inch Nails) perform 'Hurt' live many moon ago. it was tragically beautiful. Johnny Cash's version is it's own gorgeous entity...I cannot compare the two.
I am sad to hear of the burnt house, but the Match-made-in-Heaven are no longer in need of that place, as they are together again but in a better place.
