Johnny Cash won the Country Music Association’s album of the year, single of the year and video of the year awards Wednesday for his rendition of the rock song “Hurt.”
“It’s amazing my father had such a life that he could expose himself and still never lose his dignity and his charm,” said Cash’s son John Carter Cash, who accepted the awards with Cash’s daughter, Kathy Cash.
The announcements drew a standing ovation at the CMA’s 37th Annual Country Music Awards.
Cash, who died Sept. 12 at age 71 of complications from diabetes, was nominated for four CMA awards this year.
Wednesday’s show included a tribute to Cash, with Sheryl Crow , Kris Kristofferson , Willie Nelson , Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Travis Tritt and Hank Williams Jr. performing his music.
