Johnny Cash Surprises Lifelong Fan In Hospital After He Was Too Sick To Attend Concert

One man who had purchased tickets to a Johnny Cash concert was too sick to go, so the Man in Black brought the music to him.

Life is a series of unexpected twists and turns, sometimes arriving in places we never ever imagined. Unfortunately, sickness and diseases are often included in that journey. It’s a sad, tragic part of life. 

It was because of one fan’s unexpected cancer diagnosis that resulted in legendary country musician Johnny Cash visiting a fan in the hospital. 

As the video explains, Keith Flemming, an Australian man, had purchased tickets to see The Highwaymen in concert. Keith had every intention of going to see the supergroup but, unfortunately, was unable to make it to the show. 

Keith was diagnosed with lung cancer and being critically ill could not leave his hospital room to see the group, which included Johnny Cash. So, understanding the situation and knowing that Keith was a massive fan of Johnny’s, the “I Walk the Line” singer went to Keith.

Prior to the visit to see Keith, the video states that Johnny’s mother had passed away a few short months earlier, also from lung cancer. 

In the clip, Johnny introduces himself, shakes Keith’s hand and asks him how he’s doing. Johnny then leans over and gives the dying man a kiss on the cheek. 

Johnny then tells Keith that his absence at his concert was noticeable.

“Sorry you couldn’t make the show,” Johnny says. “We missed ya.”

But Johnny’s loving words weren’t the only ways he showed the sick man kindness. Johnny even put on a private concert for Keith, singing a couple of songs for him.

Johnny’s kind act and touching words likely meant the world to Keith and his family.

Ephesians 4:32 “Be kind to one another, full of pity, having forgiveness for one another, even as God in Christ had forgiveness for you.”
