Involvement with Johnny Cash
During a concert near Baltimore, Maryland Johnny Cash had heard that Debbie Horton was there and that she played lead guitar in a similar way to Luther Perkins. During the concert Cash called Horton out of the audience to join him on stage to perform a song with him. Cash sang Big River while Horton played lead guitar. Horton holds the distinction of being the only woman to have played lead guitar for Cash.
Presently Debbie Horton is the co-host of a traveling show from Branson, Missouri, featuring a tribute to Johnny Cash. She can be seen regularly on the RFD-TV television show, Midwest Country.
