The (Wedding) Ring of Fire

Scarlett performing with her father, Bob Wootton.

We here at MotoArigato would like to congratulate our extended family and co-conspirators, the Woottons, on the marriage of their talented daughter Scarlett on the occasion of her recent wedding in Nashville, TN. Scarlett is the daughter of Bob Wootton, Johnny Cash's guitarist, back-up vocalist and movie/TV stand-in since the Live at San Quentin Prison album. He replaced Luther Perkins who died in a house fire in 1968. Scarlett's mother is Vicky Cook, a former member of the Carter Family who went on to marry Bob and become a backing member of the Cash's stage show in her own right and who still performs, along with Bob, Scarlett and their youngest daughter Montana, as the original backing band for Johnny Cash, The Tennessee Three.

You may remember our humble reminiscing about the custom coach that toured Johnny Cash and his band around the country, but if not, check it out:  On the Road In Johnny Cash's Custom Tour Bus
