Johnny Cash Concept Album

So basically I was listening to Cash's American Recordings and noticed that a lot of the songs go well with each other and could create a great concept album. All the famous themes are here (humble beginnings, war, religion, prison, and lonesome blues) but are based on a main characters experiences through life. Lets see if you guys dig this.
