Jimmy Vivino and Conan Cover Cash With Chris Isaak

Posted:

Chris Isaak stopped by the set of Conan recently to perform with host Conan O’Brien and Basic Cable Band leader Jimmy Vivino.

But the song they played was from another legend’s catalog, as Isaak and Co. offered a spot-on rendition of Johnny Cash’s 1963 hit “Ring of Fire.”

Isaak chose to put that tune on Beyond the Sun, his 2011 tribute to the iconic artists at Sun Records, such as Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison and Cash himself.

Check out Vivino with the Gretsch G6120RHH Reverend Horton Heat he played on the episode:
