I'm not familiar with these artists, but I'm pretty sure that Johnny Cash isn't a band... Just kidding, I can't resist the temptation :)

I don't usually listen to this kind of music, but I have to admit that I'm having some trouble deciding which one to vote because I like both of them. They both sound really good, have a nice voice and I just love the sound of the guitars. However, it seems to me, who has absolutely no knowledge about this music, that Jennings was a "classic" country musician, while Cash explored other genres. Cash's songs surprise me every time due to that musical variety and that's probably the main reason why I'm voting for him.

So my vote goes to Johnny Cash.

A now for an update. Maybe it was wishful thinking to hope for more votes than this, but I expected more. Current score:

___________________________________________
Johnny Cash-4
vs.
Waylon Jennings- 0
___________________________________________

I hate to point out that these are singers, not bands.

I'm aware of this, but adding singers ads to the variety of this competition. Plus, we've done this before, I believe most recently with the battle of the Beatles, where we pitted each Beatle member against each other.

Although Waylon Jennings has a few songs I really love, I'm going to have to go with the man in black on this one.  Johnny Cash is just above and beyond most people in country music.  So much so that he is bigger than country music, where Waylon is "merely" country music.  If that makes any sense.

My vote is for Johnny Cash.

I would say Johnny Cash, but both don't really interest me. Almost never heard about Waylon Jennings. But Johnny Cash as merit, for his amazing cover of "Hurt" which is one of my favourite songs ever.

you guys need to include reasoning with your vote.  As your posts stand, they barely qualify as anything more than spam.  The point of this thread is to provoke discussion and in order to do so, some reasoning must be had.

I have no other reasoning besides the fact that I prefer Johnny Cash's voice. If I wanted to logic you a conclusion, I'd be in WEPR. Just let this oldtimer walk the line.

Oh, I need to end this soon. MrDayCees gone again, and I'm not able to update as much as I'd like. Anyhow, I need to dig about for a new battle, and I'll get it up when I can.

Current score:

___________________________________________
Johnny Cash-7
vs.
Waylon Jennings- 0
___________________________________________
Bit of a blow out here, eh?

If you got a suggestion for a battle, feel free to post it on my profile.

Time to wrap this up. Final score:

___________________________________________
Johnny Cash-7
vs.
Waylon Jennings- 0
___________________________________________

That was a bit of a blowout there. Perhaps this next one will be a bit closer.

Our next battle is

Johnny Cash vs. Willie Nelson

For Johnny Cash example songs, see the last page.

Willie Nelson:
On The Road Again
Always On My Mind
Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain

Let the battle begin!
