In 1953, before Cash had a record deal, he wrote stories. Among those was the short story “The Holografik Danser” about a 21st century America, under a Russian communist regime, which couldn’t be that much worse than their upcoming president.
Johnny Cash biographer Steve Turner said the following: “The Holografik Danser portrayed a twenty-first-century America that had been conquered by Russia — major cities had been razed by nuclear attack, and entertainment was paid for in kiosks and then piped into homes via phone lines. Partly inspired by the news of the explosion in television broadcasting, he envisaged a time when live holographic entertainment would be beamed into living rooms for twelve dollars a show. He further imagined the possibility of a man projecting himself into the hologram.”
