Johnny Cash's "Ragged Old Flag" was the soundtrack for an ad during Super Bowl LI

Johnny Cash‘s “Ragged Old Flag” was the soundtrack for an ad during Super Bowl LI on Sunday night. 

Fox, the network that broadcast this year’s Super Bowl, led into the game with a four-minute spot, set to Cash’s patriotic spoken-word track, that highlights big moments in U.S. history.  The clip features Harry Belafonte and Simone Biles, as well as military veterans and a pastor and actress who took part in civil rights marches in the 1960s.

“Ragged Old Flag” appeared on Cash’s 1974 album of the same name; it’s the record’s opening track and was the project’s only single.
