W.S. Holland

WS Holland played drums behind Johnny Cash for over 40 years!  The man put the beat to most of Johnny’s greatest recordings and he witnessed as country and popular music would never be the same after Johnny Cash!  WS began as a session player at Sun Records in Memphis and would you believe the second time he entered the studio was to cut a little song with Carl Perkins called “Blue Suede Shoe”?  The song helped popularize Rockabilly Music and provided a great reputation for WS who stayed at the Sun studios for a while to record with Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Mann and his life long friend Charlie Rich!  When Johnny asked WS to fill in for a few dates he said “yes” and stayed for over 40 years!
