The Johnny Cash Show aired on CBS from 1969 to 1971. On October 28, 1970 Louis Armstrong put in a guest appearance to perform and plug a new album of country songs he was working on. Armstrong's lone country album "Louis Armstrong and the Nashville Cats" has never been released on CD. It was one of Armstrong's final appearances. Less than a year later on July 6, 1971 he died of a heart attack.
