Listen to Johnny Cash’s ‘Ring of Fire’ from Westworld, Season 4, Ep. 8 as William is ambushed

The iconic country music singer Johnny Cash’s ‘Ring of Fire‘ was one of the tracks heard on the season finale of Westworld this week — Westworld, Season 4, Episode 8, “Que Será, Será“.

The song was played as William is ambushed, and then kills the men who did it.



Johnny Cash’s ‘Ring of Fire‘ is one of the American singer’s most well-known and most popular songs.

It was released in 1963 on his sixteenth studio album Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash. An album that became his first to be certified Gold.

The song went on to be one of Cash’s biggest hits, making it to #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart, #17 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and also charted in Germany and Switzerland.

The song was also eventually certified Gold in the U.S., and Platinum in the UK.

Interestingly, ‘Ring of Fire’ was first recorded and released by Cash’s wife’s sister Anita Carter, and then recorded again by Johnny Cash just months later.

His is the version that is the most known today.
