    Johnny vs. The Devil?

    this has bugged me for 20 years!! Johnny going around for all these years thinking he won that rigged battle of violins!

    IMO- the devil totally kicked Johnny's arse! kicked it all over Georgia really... i mean how could Johnny really compete with a band of demons??

    it's the Music Industry's version of the Black Sox scandal!

    Quinn!

    I agree. The devil had a pretty good guitarist backing him, too.

    Don't be silly, AJ. Charlie still has a flourishing career playing county fairs. In fact, he'll be in my city next month.* At $10 a head, I might even go, and put this "Johnny vs. the Devil" controversy to rest by judging how it sounds live.

    I have always been amazed at the guys who have made successful careers out of 'spoken word', story telling songs - and they generally come out of the country music genre - Charlie, Jerry Reed, Ray Stevens...but they are usually good, comic fun.

    Gotta admit though - no one tops Charlie in the Giant Hat & Belt Buckle combo department.

    The shame of it all is that - I ran into Johnny recently and he hasnt taken care of that golden fiddle at all. He let it go to hell and its all covered with lime deposits now.

    As for the devil, he is scheduled for a 12 round event in July against a tag team of Britney and X-tina for the coveted golden thong. The devil really plans to "go down" that night.
