At the wedding tonight, the bride and groom danced to this song.

That's an... ironic choice, at best. If I remember correctly, "Ring of Fire" was written by June Carter (later Cash, of course) about her feelings for the then married-to-somebody-else, just as she was, Johnny Cash. The song is about going to Hell for falling in love with someone when you're unavailable, for heaven's sake.
(This was covered ages ago in a This American Life episode, which I lack the HTML-fu to link to. It was one of Sarah Vowell's pieces, and ended with a heartbreakingly lovely duet between June and Johnny about spouses separated by death being reunited in heaven.)
All that said? That is a truly kickass song, and I wish I'd danced to it at my wedding!

Marshall Grant, the Tennessee Two[/Three]'s bass player -- with Cash from circa 1954 through 1980 -- passed away last weekend at age 83.
That's him on the left in the video thumbnail.
